Historic Brews

Since opening in 2014 we have brewed a number of special and seasonal beers which we may well brew again.

Borrowers Bitter – 3.6% ABV

Named after the classic series of children’s book written by Mary Norton in Leighton Buzzard this is a mid-brown, easy drinking session ale brewed with five different English hops and the finest Warminster Maris Otter Pale Malt – a great ‘English Ale’!

Sandman – 4.1% ABV

A surprisingly complex beer with a dry maltiness on the palate followed by citrus fruit from the use of Mosaic hops at the end of the boil

Bedfordshire Best – 4.1% ABV

Bedfordshire Best is a best bitter brewed with Marris Otter Pale Malt and three different English hops. It was brewed at the request of the Friends of Bedfordshire Society to celebrate the first ever ‘Bedfordshire Day’ on the 28 November 2015 and will be brewed for each Bedforshire Day going forward.

St George – 4.2% ABV

A golden ale brewed with 100% English Marris Otter Pale Malt and 100% Kentish Goldings hops.

4-2 – 4.2% ABV

A golden coloured ale brewed to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of England winning the World Cup in July 1966. This beer uses 100% English Golding hops.

Ninja – 4.3% ABV

A light coloured summer ale thanks to the extra-pale Marris Otter malt used. This beer is brewed with Motueka and Mosaic hops to give a gentle refreshing fruitiness.

X.M.A.S.H – 4.5% ABV

Our Christmas brew is an amber (or you could say Orange!) coloured beer which has a wonderful but not over-powering citrus flavour and aroma thanks to the addition of fresh orange peel at the end of the boil.

Smokin’ Angel – 5.0% ABV

Using generous quantities of German Rauchmaltz smoked over beech wood in the Bamberg area of Germany this dark porter style beer offer a complex malty beer with a wonderful smoky aroma and taste.

Dixie – 5.5% ABV

Everything and IPA should be – high ABV and heavily hopped. This popular beer uses two types of American hops for flavour and aroma; Ahtanum and Cascade.

Centennial IPA – 6.8% ABV

A big hoppy IPA brewed using only the American Centennial hop.
