These are the brews we’ve got on the go at the moment.

HURLY BURLY

Rewarding,complex and maltily satisfying. This is the same Belgian yeast 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.

Unfined with a natural haze; vegan friendly. Available in keg and bottle. Contains malted barley and wheat

TIME LAPSE

We’ve gone back to our roots for this one and brewed a classic English bitter. Sitting in a pub with a pint of cask bitter is one of our favourite things to do. It’s part of a grand tradition of pub life that stretches back generations in this country. We want to celebrate those traditions with this beer, which is our exploration of the style of beers we grew up drinking.

We’ll be developing the recipe over the coming months to take in different aspects of traditional English beers. Expect to see some darker beers, some lighter beers, modern and classic hops, as we aim to nail down what it is about this type of beer that has such an enduring appeal.

What will stay true throughout the brews is that it will always have British hops, and always be fermented in our open top tanks. This style of beer isn’t a showy scene-stealer, and nor should it be. It’s a beer brewed to accompany conversation and laughter. And always brewed for cask.

FRESH START

A light, refreshing beer inspired by the ‘Patersbier’ brews of Belgian monks – the ones they kept for themselves! The simple malt bill and continental hops allow the yeast to be the star of the show.

HOLY ROAR

Brewed with our friends from Holy Roar Records, this beast of a beer is full of dark malts and the American hops Columbus, Cascade and Simcoe. We fermented it on oak for added toastiness. It weighs in at a satisfying 6.66%, and we think it’s a great representation of both businesses – interesting, experimental and exciting!

This beer is being launched at two events, one in London at Ghost Whale and one in Bristol at the Crofters Rights, so please come along and try it for the first time with us then. Details on our events page and on fcbk.

STEADY STATE

This is a development of the first beer Bob ever brewed. You may have known it as Big Bang in the past, but we had to change the name after Greene King got their legal bods to trademark it for their own beer. 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.

NATURAL SELECTION

An American style pale ale designed to be refreshing and easy drinking. We’ve built a light malt base to allow the Simcoe and Equinox hops to take centre stage, and the dry finish makes this a beer to go back to.

BECOMING NORTH

Taking cues from the brewers of the Baltics, we selected a lager yeast to ferment this dark beer. Keeping the fermentation cold, at around 11 degrees C, makes this beer extra smooth and brings out the chocolatey malt flavours.
