Our flagship cask ale proved so popular with the local real ale enthusiasts we decided to bottle it too! A delicious amber ale packed with flavour, refreshing bitterness and a delicate hoppy finish imparted by a late addition of East Kent Golding and Progress hops.
This rich tawny beer is full of satisfying malty flavours due to a generous combination of barley and wheat malts. Brewed with traditional English Fuggle and East Kent Golding hops with a late addition of fragrant Slovenian Aurora to deliver a deliciously delicate spiciness and subtle hop aroma.
Inspired by the complex fruity aroma of traditional Trappist ales, we've created a lighter, more refreshing pilsner style beer. By using Belgian abbey yeast and floral Saaz and Tettnang hops with Belgian Pilsner malt we've crafted a deliciously thirst-quenching hybrid ale, equally ideal served chilled on a warm summer's evening or in front of the fire place, keeping winter at bay!
Brewed with classic British malts and modern American hops, our Transatlantic Pale Ale delivers mouthwatering aromas and a deeply satisfying flavour... the very best from both sides of the pond! We use Cascade, Summit, Crystal and Palisade hops to impart refreshing floral, citrus and nectar fruit notes.
Our dark chestnut-coloured festive ale is brewed with a subtle hint of Christmas spices. The combination of barley and wheat malts layered with traditional English hops imparts a subtly sweet, dried fruits flavour and a distinctive nose of sherry and cinnamon. A perfect ale to be savoured through the long winter evenings. SOLD OUT - NEW STOCK AVAILABLE LATER IN THE YEAR.
Hopped in multiple stages through the brewing process with generous quantities of Amarillo, Summit, Columbus and Cascade hops, this golden ale has a mouthwatering citrus aroma and a refreshing flavour with hints of grapefruit and lychee. A dry hop stage is added during fermentation to give our American-style IPA a subtle spiciness, complimenting the citrus flavours provided by the hops added during the brew.
An intense and complex porter brewed with roasted barley, dark crystal and chocolate malts and sustainably sourced freshly ground coffee. We use Challenger and Magnum hops to deliver a well-balanced bitterness and late addition Willamette and Belma hops for a complementing hint of red berries.
A new take on an old-fashioned classic, Cavendish Red is brewed with a perfectly balanced blend of wheat and barley malts to deliver a deliciously chocolaty, malty flavour. We use a combination of traditional Northdown and East Kent Golding hops to provide a satisfying light bitterness with Bramling Cross hops for a subtle spiciness and a delicately fruity aroma. Truly an ale for all seasons!
Brewed with flaked maize and fine pilsner malts, Saffron Sun is a crisp, refreshing craft lager. We use Tettnang, Perle and aromatic Aramis hops to deliver delicious herbal, spicy and sweet honey notes.
The Saintly One is a full flavoured, rich and malty real ale brewed with five delicious speciality malts. Brewer's Gold, Palisade and Warrior Queen hops are combined for a perfect balance of spicy bitterness and fruity aroma. Deeply satisfying yet remarkably only 1.5% ABV! SOLD OUT - NEW STOCK AVAILABLE SOON!
Powerful, refreshing and not for the faint-hearted, our thoroughly modern Double IPA is jam packed with mouthwatering new world hops. Bursting with fresh pine, passion fruit and orange citrus flavours from the freshest Simcoe and Amarillo hops and brewed with the finest pale malts for a gigantic, full strength beast of an ale! SOLD OUT - NEW STOCK AVAILABLE SOON.
Specially created for the spring and summer festival season, this is a thirst-quenching zesty pale ale ideal for the long hot summer days. Brewed with generous amounts of Columbus, Summit, Australian Summer and Ekuanot hops to impart incredible orange and lemon, papaya and melon flavours with a deliciously refreshing grapefruit aroma.
Established in March 2018, we are a new and enthusiastic microbrewery based in the beautiful historic market town of Clare in West Suffolk. With our passion for high quality, fine ales of character we are extremely proud of our tasty small-batch brews which currently range from classic amber ales and golden IPA to Belgian-style abbey ale and dark coffee porter... and quite a bit in between!
By using only the very finest malts and hops and producing each of our beers in small quantities we are able to create exceptional ales under tightly controlled conditions, testing and tweaking our recipes at every stage. This method allows us to experiment with dozens of different beer styles as well as perfecting our more popular range of ales and craft lagers.
Our beers are available in both 330ml amber bottles and in casks (9-gal firkins and 4.5-gal pins) which we are now providing to pubs, restaurants, catering businesses and festivals in East Anglia and beyond. All of our ales are bottle and cask conditioned, free from gelatine or other animal products and suitable for vegetarians.
