Whilst we would not recommend having this at breakfast with your bacon and eggs, our Coffee Beer is made with real coffee and has a caffeine hit to match. The natural flavors of the beans selected and hand roasted by our friends at the Union Coffee Roasters go well with the roast barley in the beer to give a silky-smooth drink with distinct chocolate and vanilla notes.
Available in 11.2oz bottle.
India Pale Ale
Jam packed with English Fuggles and Goldings, the beer is brewed with as many hops as we can physically get into the copper. We then fill the lauter tun with hops for a further infusion and then we dry hop with the beer with even more hops using our own unique circulation process to ensure maximum contact between the bops and the body of the beer. All this gives us a final hopping rate of well over 2lbs of hops per barrel. The only true British IPA being brewed in modern times.
Available in 11.2oz bottle; 750ml bottle; 20L keg.

No fewer than seven malts go into our Porter, helping us recreate a recipe of 1750, specially chosen to bring you the flavours so loved by Londoners that demand for Porter made London the brewing capital of the world. Offering light roast malt on the nose and on the tongue a sweetish caramel gives way to a mouthful of smokey, dry maltiness, and an astringency on the finish that comes entirely from the brown, black and chocolate malts, rather than hops; and there are an awful lot of Fuggle hops in our Porter.
Available in 11.2oz bottle; 750ml bottle.
Historically, Scotch Ales have always been a celebration of full, rich malty flavor. We think you'll find this to be no exception. Originally this beer was meant to be sold exclusively through the Rare Beer Club, but at the end of a long and twisty road we are the exclusive source of supply in the US.
It's a one-of-a-kind beer available for a limited time. Seek it out and enjoy!
Available in 750ml bottle.
A stout based on the original porter stouts made in the 19th century, this beer has a rich & complex malt base balanced with a harmonious dose of Goldings hops. Another great offering from the brewery dedicated to resurrecting legendary British styles.
Available in 20L keg.
