Named after a mischievous mammal, this morishly malty, amber ale is just the ticket for the discerning beer drinker. With a full-bodied biscuity taste from the dark crystal malt, and a subtle floral and lemon hop aroma its a well-balanced winner for any occasion.
Inspired by a good old-fashioned knees-up, this golden ale is a much-loved classic. Made with the finest English Flagon barley, Goldings and Challenger hops, its balance of flavours makes it deceptively drinkable. Try its crisp malt and subtle hop, with a delicate pear drop aroma in draught or bottle.
If your tastebuds are partial to something a little lighter, this bright golden ale is the one for you. This characterful beer was inspired by the golden harvest mouse, who somersaults through the fields in search of wild barley and floral flavours. So it’s no surprise to find the two-legged mammals amongst us chasing its blossomy hints of elderflower and crisp taste.
With its delicious blend of citrus American Amarillo and Cascade hop, this pale ale is wonderfully aromatic. Light, hoppy and made with the finest English flagon barley, it’s a treat for putting the spring back in your step and delivering a refreshing taste from the first sip to the last.
Crafted in homage to a character known for its zing, this golden ale is loved for its refreshingly different ginger taste. Spicy and sweet, with hints of toffee its unique flavour is what intrigues and delights fellow beer aficionados. A delicious drop for a lazy day down by the river, or a cosy catch-up by the fire.
For years, a famous forager scouted the village of Cranbourne for pilfered plums — so it was only right to name this fruity brew after such a character. With crystal and chocolate malts and complex flavours of damson and liquorice, it’s rich and plummy flavour makes it the perfect ruby ale. But you needn’t scavenge to try it, just pick up a bottle at your local supermarket.
We pride ourselves on making refreshingly unique beers, and this West Coast Style IPA is a real winner. With Amarillo, Cascade and Mosaic hops, this blend of bitter character and hoppy finish is a treat for the tastebuds. And with its zesty grapefruit aroma, its a wonderfully refreshing and well-balanced beer.
This auburn-coloured bitter is a real classic. Brewed with Celeia, Bobek and Dana hops and developed with the hop growers themselves, it’s a testament to beer-making. This, along with the finest Flagon ale and crystal malt, makes this staple beer both thirst-quenching and characterful. So proud of it, are we, that it takes pride and place on cask only in our pubs.
Forum – a Helles-style pale lager - has a delicate flavour from the traditional brewing method of long cold lagering combined with Weihenstephan yeast. The Hallertau and Heulle Melon hops deliver a subtle fruity character.
This auburn ale is our current seasonal special. Inspired by the notorious pirate Harry Paye (and the place he supposedly stashed his loot). It’s refreshing taste takes you back to holidays by the sea and its blend of hops and floral citrusy aromas make it gratifyingly thirst-quenching. In short, perfect for summer.
