September Blog

Is summer ebbing away or will the sunshine last for an Indian Summer? Hope so, not least because we have the perfect beer, coincidentally called – Indian Summer – to accompany a sizzling and sunny September. With an ABV of 4.3%, it is a golden tropical fruit flavoured ale that’s great-tasting and easy to enjoy.

It’s a busy time for us at the brewery, I know, when isn’t it? As we head into the Autumn and the evenings draw in why not crack open a bottle of Derail Ale? If you’re a fan of Derail then you’ll be delighted to know that it is back on cask too.

Talking of our popular ale, it has just won silver at The Global Beer Masters 2017, along with another silver for Golden Bolt and a bronze medal for Wet Your Whistle. We know our customers love our beer and appreciate the engineering that goes into them, but it is great to be recognised among some stellar breweries such as St Peters and Pirate Life.

As well as supporting our wholesale and supermarket customers prepare for the busiest time of the year – Christmas – we are currently concluding our own strategy for next year. We will have some tasty beer ideas and growth plans to share with you soon!

Until next time – cheers

Phew, where has the time gone? We’ve been brewing for almost 15 years.

We’ll never produce factory style beer. Our creative brewers use hop flavours to their full, forever artful in the quite wondrous production of naturally flavoursome beer.

Our roots are firmly in the West Country, where we continue to be inspired by the engineering triumphs of the late great Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
