After pouring everyone elses' excellent beers over the last eleven years, we figured it was time to start brewing our own - time to install our own stainless and start walking the walk. So in early 2014 that's what we did; in the form of a Premier Stainless 600L Brewhouse with three single batch fermentors. Just the right size to play; enabling us to brew whatever, however and whenever we want. Light-footed, nimble brewing with the freedom of Contract and the stability of Stainless. From time to time we might even be lucky enough to collaborate with some of those excellent Brewers whose beers we've poured, and will continue to pour, over the years...
STYLE: Hoppy Brown Ale
IN A NUTSHELL: Malty, nutty, zesty and pungent. Smashable.

A straight-up, old fashioned restorative Stout.

IN A NUTSHELL Strawlike, herbal and dry. Tell me why.
Once we established that the beer we’d be brewing with good friend and long term ally Dave Bonighton was a golden, hoppy German Pils; Sir Bob ‘Gelbhopf’ - ‘Gold Hop’ auf Deutsch - pretty much named himself...
Style Breakfast Stout
In a Nutshell Roasty, oaty, smooth & nourishing. Vim & Vigour.
Our plan with Wheaty-Bix was to brew the Breakfast Stout equivalent of cold drip filtered coffee; clean, lean and delicate on the one hand with a clear intensity of coffee character on the other...
Style East Coast IPA
In a nutshell Juicy, fruity and smooth. Hops Oats Yeast.
