Off-sales to the public from the Brewhouse Door

We welcome sales direct to the public, by appointment please. We have five staple brews that are usually available - Colchester No.1, Metropolis, Red Diesel, AK Pale and Jack Spitty's Smuggler's Ale. Our regular retro-style beers and specials will be available from time to time. All our beers are double-dropped during fermentation in the traditional way - this means they tend to settle reliably and much faster than most other beers made using more modern (cheaper) processes.

Draught

Beers are available to the public in Firkins (9 gallons, 72 pints), poly pins (34 pints) and demi pins (18 pints), for which we respectfully request 24 hours notice.
