Off-sales to the public from the Brewhouse Door

Things have changed due to Covid-19. No appointment necessary! Brewery off-sales usually 11am-4pm Monday to Friday and 11am-3pm Saturday. Plastic bag in boxes, minikegs and bottles as per stock list and price list.

We welcome sales direct to the public. We have five staple brews that are usually available - Colchester No.1, Metropolis, Jack Spitty, Sweeney Todd and AKA Pale. 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.


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.

You can download these simple instructions for setting up polypins.


We usually have the following beers available in 500ml NRB bottles:

These are available individually to your order, and we usually have a three-bottle gift pack of these ready to go.

Our bottles of beer are £2.75 each or £33 per dozen (including VAT).
