Spent hops are forwarded on to local farmers for fertilisers and spent grain is used for cattle. The spent yeast becomes silage for pigs. The company’s privately implemented recycling scheme takes care of paper, plastic, cans and anything which is possible to be recycled. Their Wetland System has the water going to the River Avon, following cleaning of the effluent. The cask, bottled and canned beers, several of which are award-winning, are vegan friendly. Gluten-free options are available, too.
BUNNY HOP (3.5% vol). Pale malt, Lager malt, Wheat malts and Cara malt, plus an abundance of Pilgrim, Eureka, El Dorado and Chinook hops, are utilised, to great advantage, to produce this very popular, light-coloured gluten-free, unfiltered pale ale.
JIMBO (4.0% vol). Pilgrim, Fuggles, Goldings, plus Emperor hops combine to achieve the enticing aroma for this gluten-free, unfiltered bitter beer.
MAD GOOSE (4.2% vol). I found this production refreshing, with a good citrusy aroma and finish, brought about by the use of Cascade hops. The combinations of Pale, Wheat and Crystal malts make this ale smooth and most ‘palate friendly’.
SESSION IPA (4.5% vol). Initially brewed during the summer of 2018, this gluten-free, unfiltered IPA comes across (to me) with excellent fruit overtones, which complement the hoppy nasal appeal, splendidly. (Pale malt, Vienna, Golden Naked oats, plus Simcoe, Eureka and Mosaic hops). Vegan friendly and gluten-free.
LONGHORN (5.0% vol). Another, very popular, full-bodied, unfiltered IPA. The best Pale malt, Rye, Crystal Rye and Cara malt make wonderful combinations and, with Pilgrim, Chinook, Galaxy, plus Simcoe hops, this Longhorn production is a fruity winner, for many IPA connoisseurs.
PURE HELLES (5.0% vol). Organic and gluten-free, this lager has parallels with German-style lagers. From nose, through palate, this does not disappoint, in any way. Refreshing and ‘clean’, top quality English Pale malt, Pilgrim and Classic Noble hops, from Bavaria, are very well combined.
