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.

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...
