Our brewery shop has long been regarded as having one of the best ranges of craft beers in the south. Over years of dedicated research from our shop team, building close relationships with brewers and suppliers, we have been able to stock our shelves with some of the newest and hardest to get beers in the UK.
With developments to our website, for the first time, you can now view most of our range of UK & International beers alongside Wines & Spirits online and can even purchase online for Click & Collect. We have put together this guide to some of our favourite beers that you will struggle to find elsewhere.
Amundsen Bryggeri is an Oslo-based brewery focused on producing craft beers of the highest quality for the non-conformists out there. They make a range of pretty unconventional beers including Pina Colada Milkshake IPAs and a beer explicitly made to be enjoyed just before the apocalypse. Well worth a try.
Verdant are fast becoming the most exciting Craft brewer in the country and have a brand new beer coming out pretty much every other week. From their base in Falmouth they have been creating some delightful hop-forward Double Dry-Hopped and flavourful IPAs that really pack a punch!
From South Cornwall across to North Cornwall, we have made friends with the team at Padstow Brewing. They produce a range of classic bottled ales and some delicious crafty cans. They have come a long way from starting off in 2013 based in a converted Surf Shower to now producing many award-winning brews.
You have to be in the right place at the right time to get hold of Duration brews. From their renovated Norfolk-priory their churn out some delicious brews covering a wide range of styles which show off their detailed knowledge of beers. From classic Wits to West Coast Pales it is well worth putting a few of their beers in your basket.
Our near neighbours from Finchampstead have become a favourite for many of shop team since lockdown as can be seen from their Pick of the Week choices (this week Sam H has chosen Suspended in Cans Hazy Pale Ale). Since winning CAMRA’s coveted Beer of the year in 2018 with Broken Dream Breakfast Stout, they have gone from strength to strength, producing more and more experimental and interesting brews. One that stands out on our shelves at the moment is their Castilian Lemon Honey Cheesecake IPA.
Ones to watch and based a little further up the road in Reading is Phantom. Having opened their doors in November 2019, these guys have been finding their feet with a mix of IPAs and Pales and then some more experimental beers like the Touch Blackcurrant & Apple sour.
We’ve got plenty more in stock so if there is something specific you are looking for come and ask the shop boys, if we don’t have it already, we will try our best to get it in for you.
