Gold. A lightly bittered beer, with a spicy aroma, the distinctive taste of this 3.6% ale is achieved using classic Eastern European hops.

Some Like It Blonde is a refreshing blonde style beer. At 3.9% ABV, this beer has a delightful hoppy aftertaste, acheived using a blend of European and New Zealand hops. This beer, appeals to those new to real ale, as well as seasoned drinkers. Marilyn Monroe inspired the name - and why not?


Old Trout, a red / brown ale with an ABV of 4.5%. This beer is beautifully balanced, lightly bittered, and very smooth to drink. It won 'Best Beer in Festival' at the East Lancs CAMRA Burnley Beer Festival 2014, and then GOLD for 'Best Premium Bitter' at the SIBA North West Region Beer Competition, held at Bolton Rugby Club on Wednesday, 15th October 2014, and was a National Finalist in the SIBA BeerX finals held at Ice Sheffield in March 2015.  Definitely a beer for those who appreciate quality.

Christened in honour of Burnley's mining heritage, Collier's Clog is a strong pale ale, 5.5% ABV. This lightly bittered beer has a good balanced body with a citrus after-taste. This strong ale has a character of it's own, and, as in any encounter with a collier's clog, beware of the kick!

'Red Man' This light bitter, at 4.2%,  with a distinct grapefruit after-taste was first produced in the summer as an Olympic Beer, but proved so popular that it has been re-named, and brought back as a permanent feature in our range.



'Chestnut Mare'  4.0%   This is a smooth, lightly bittered dark bitter, with a delightful chocolate aftertaste. Originally intended as a short seasonal beer, Chestnut Mare will remain as one of our core products.



Brewed especially for this spring, 'Hop on the Mayflower' is a light, refreshing blonde beer. At 4.0%, it has been brewed with English Pilgrim hops, and has a fruity, tangerine finish.
