ABOUT OUR BEERS

Things at the Woodsetton site have come a long way since our humble beginnings in The Park 100 years ago and 2015 sees the completion of our new tank room which will increase capacity by 50% along with the recommencement of Brewery Tours from February 2015. We begin our celebrations with the much anticipated launch of our rebranded core pump clips and bottle labels along with our 2015 Heritage Heroes Seasonal Beer range which include some crackers from last year.
