Our beer of the month for July is a refreshing little number, it’s a Grapefruit Radler. This was originally created by thirsty cyclists in Europe to slake themselves after a hill climb, and it soon caught on! . We’ve added grapefruit for extra zing!

We’re making the most of the last of the summer holidays by bringing everyone together for one final celebration on Saturday 1st September; it’s a ‘bring your kids to work!’ day for the brewery team! Come join us as we soak up the last of the sunshine and sink a couple of cheap pints.
