Our beers are all crafted by our dedicated brewing team in small batches, using only the ﬁnest ingredients and we believe this is the only way to do it!
All are available in cask, bottle, keg, as well as a selection in cans. So, whether it’s a fruity blonde a refreshing golden or a smooth dark mild we’re sure you’ll approve!
In 2018 we scooped Four Industry Awards at SIBA’s North East Beer Festival – which we were over the moon about! We repeated this success with ‘Cool Citra’ which won Regional Gold and National Silver in its category in 2019.
