February 6th 2020 - Even More Reason to Celebrate!

We are not usually ones to blow our own trumpet but when our passion for brewing authentic double drop ales is recognised by others, well, it would be rude not to give it a mention.

After our success last week, our London Porter, Old King Coel, has now been awarded Bronze in the Champion Winter Beer of Britain 2020.

Here's 'Old Rog '(on the right) collecting the award and looking very happy about it too!

31st January 2020 - Colchester Brewery Comes Out on Top!
