These are the brews we’ve MADE IN THE PAST.

SOLAR IMPULSE

A full-flavoured, easy-drinking beer, where the focus is squarely on hops. Light in body and colour, there’s a big zesty hit from the American varieties of hops (Eldorado, Ahtanum and Centennial), backed-up by juicy tropical flavours from the antipodean hops (Ella).

IN OUR NATURE

We brewed In Our Nature in collaboration with The Gallimaufry. Available exclusively at the well-known bar on Bristol’s famous Gloucester Road, we were aiming for the perfect session ale to enjoy in the sun on The Galli’s great terrace. We think this light, easy drinking pale, with a bit of sweetness from the malt and a hop combination that adds citrus, orange and tropical flavours, achieves just that.

In addition to our work with team at The Galli, who came in on brewday to get stuck in, the beautiful bespoke pumpclip has been hand-painted by Galli favourites, Hana Sunny Whaler and Dave Bain. This is a true collaboration, and one we’re proud to be involved in!

BIG BANG

This is a development of the first beer Bob ever brewed. It’s a modern pale ale with a malt backbone to suit the season. We used a whole heap of classic American hops in our whirlpool to give the beer big aroma and flavour. Brash, bold and assertive.

NUMBERS GAME

An approachable, fruity and thirst quenching amber ale, we brewed Numbers Game in collaboration with Chris Williams, the man behind No. 12 Easton and 25a Old Market. The aim was to produce a beer that would go well with the flavourful food on offer at Chris’ cafes. Our light bodied amber has a richness and sweetness to work with the food without being too heavy. The blend of American hops contributes extra flavour with a fruity aroma, and brings a light bitterness to balance the beer.

As Chris would say “it’s a thing of beauty”!

RYED WITH US

Bursting with Azacca and Eldorado hops and brewed in collaboration with Brighton's Bison Beer. An autumnal IPA with flavours of toffee apple and a spicy rye edge. This was brewed at the end of Bristol Beer Week following Bison's bike ride from Brighton to Bristol. Read all about it on our blog page here.

While this batch of Ryed With Us was available on keg only at selected pubs, bars and shops across Bristol, Bath, Cardiff, Brighton and London, we hope to brew it again with Bison for their eagerly-anticipated pub opening on Brighton seafront summer 2017, The Bison Arms!

MORELLO THEORY

We had a theory that a sweet and malty beer could pair well with dark, sour cherries. Opposite flavours could come together to make something awesome. The result of our experiment is this rich, indulgent beer that was aged on 60kg of Morello cherries and fermented with a blend of Belgian yeasts to add a little extra spiciness. See how we made Morello Theory here.

Most of this brew went into bottle, but we did fill a few kegs for our own events and special tap take-overs. The last couple of these kegs will be unleashed in 2017!

FRESH START

A light, refreshing beer inspired by the ‘Patersbier’ brews of Belgian monks – the ones they kept back for themselves! Plenty of oats and wheat deliver body, and support the floral and spicy hops – Hallertau and Tettnang. It was fermented with a blend of three Belgian yeasts to give it an extra level of complexity.

SHORT ROUND

This is an exploration into brewing a low ABV dark beer. We added black treacle for richness, and oats for more body than you’d expect from a beer of this strength. Size isn’t everything.

HURLY BURLY

Rewarding,complex and maltily satisfying. This is the same blend of Belgian yeasts we use in Fresh Start, but we raise the fermentation temperature to make the yeast work a bit harder. This produces richer flavours of banana and toffee and supports the caramel and stone fruit flavours from the malts.

Only available in keg. Contains malted barley and wheat

QUERCUS ALBA

Oak fermented strong English bitter brewed with rye, crystal, brown and chocolate malts, inspired by photos of beer festivals from the 1970s when virtually all beers were served from oak casks. The oaky character has all but gone from modern beers, so we decided to bring it back in a big way!

JIMMY PORTER

Dark beers like this were popular with dock workers in the 1800s. We’ve packed in eight different malts to draw out flavours of chocolate, coffee, caramel and dried fruits.
