Cask Availability:

Not Today - NEW

A sparkling golden ale with aromas of fresh fruit and pine. Fruit continues in the flavour with floral undertones, finishing with a soft refreshing bitterness. What do we say to the God of Bad Beer? NOT TODAY!.

One of our range of single hopped beers brewed only using Jester hops from the UK. This is a blonde beer with a light grapefruit and lychee nose, a medium bitter and fruity taste and a medium bitter finish.

ABV 3.9


BSA - Blues

Another wonderful ale created by our brewer Nick under his own brand called "Briggs Signature Ales".This is a golden session IPA with a pronounced Californian orange aroma, oranges at the front of the palate, fading into hop resin flavours and crisp, sharp bitterness.

ABV 4.6

BSA Blues

Has It Gone Feral? - NEW

This hop beast is not for the faint-hearted! It has a rich blonde colour, whilst the subtle aroma of turkish delight and stawberry belies the huge hoppy bitter hit that explodes in the mouth. That is backed up by a very long bitter finish.

ABV 4.3


Perley Dewhops - NEW

A pale blonde ale with a sharp fruity nose from late hopping with Centennial, a solid bitter flavour , finishing long and dry-ish, with citrus lemon peel notes. The hop "Perle" is used in every stage of the brewing process. Lovely!

ABV 4.1


Nelson Sauvin

One of our single hopped range of beers, brewed using Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. Described as "a golden coloured ale, with a lovely citrusy grapefruit nose, a hoppy citrus taste followed by a similar finish."
ABV 3.8
