Up and coming festival

We’re excited to be included in Brewdog’s Up and Coming festival. Described as a celebration of emerging UK craft beer talent, they’ve gathered their top picks of up and coming breweries from the UK and, schucks, they’ve included us!

We are back!

What ever happened to the Mashionistas?

Oi! We’re still here you know! But yeah, 2020 was not a great year for us. When lockdown one began we decided to take a step back. We don’t make enough to live on from our brewery but we know plenty of people whose livelihoods depend on their brewery’s income and felt it wasn’t the […]

Hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe and fermented with London Ale III yeast. It’s in cans, so look out for it in your local specialist […]

Back in February 2019, Sean from Loughborough’s Needle and Pin came to […]

Can featuring an orang-utan


Twisted Barrel ale are basically our big brother when it comes to brewing. We have been members of their Home Brew Club for a while now and we were enormously grateful for their encouragement and sage advice when we took the plunge commercially. So when they asked us to collaborate on a brew as part […]



Most of our beer ends up in a keg. There are a number of reasons for this and one of the key benefits for us, as a relatively new brewery, is that it means that we monitor the beer – at least to some extent. It’s a luxury which larger brewers don’t necessarily have: we […]
