Our best selling beer:

We’ve been making our flagship beer Budding Pale Ale since starting in 2006, named after the inventor of the lawn mower – Edwin Budding – the first of which were manufactured where our brewery stands today!  It remains our most popular beer and has won multiple Great Taste Awards.

BUDDING 4.5% Our flagship pale ale is a welcoming combination of honey malt flavours and biscuit on the nose with gentle, fruity hops. Brewed with pale ale and wheat malts and hopped with Amarillo. Bitterness grows on the palate and is balanced by gentle malt flavours; a well rounded British ale. 2 Star Great Taste award, 2016.



TOM LONG 3.8% Full bodied session bitter, redolent of heady marmalade flavours with warming spice and peppery hops, brewed using British hop varieties, Goldings and First Gold. The palate is well balanced with rich, crystal malt delivering a deep amber colour, culminating in a dry, fruity, moreish finish. Bronze at SIBA Wales & West, 2017 & 2018.



IPA 5.6% A big blast of citrus fruit on the nose with lemon, grapefruit and blood orange to the fore. Our hop-driven IPA has an ever evolving recipe to showcase the very best of organic new world hops. The heady, floral aromas are backed up with honey malt flavours on the palate, balanced by bittersweet juicy fruit, with a long, creamy finish.



ALEDERFLOWER 4.9% Pale gold in colour with heavy-hitting floral notes from generous additions of New Zealand Taiheke & Nelson Sauvin hops intermingled with dried elderflower. Bitter hops bounce on the tongue with citrus fruit to give a finely-rounded and refreshing beer with a full mouthfeel.



SCHWARZWÄLDER 5% A light but full flavoured stout. The grain bill is complex, made up of pale ale, cara, crystal, chocolate and carafa malts and hopped with First Gold and Sovereign. The beer is conditioned over sour cherries and molasses giving it a deep, chocolate and dark fruit flavour. 1 Star Great Taste award, 2018.



LIGHT ORGANIC LAGER 4% Our light organic lager starts with a delectable lemon fruit on the nose, followed by a clean, quenching palate and subtle hop bitterness. It has a five-week cold fermentation and maturation regime, brewed with Lager and Munich malts and hopped with Saaz.
