ABOUT OUR BEER

DO YOU DO A GLUTEN / ALCOHOL FREE BEER?

Our Long White Cloud and Modern Helles are gluten free!

Sleight of Hand AF is our new LOW ALCOHOL sour pale ale and we think it is is delicious.

ARE YOUR BEERS VEGETARIAN/VEGAN FRIENDLY?

Yes! We very recently acquired a centrifuge that allows us to clear our beers without the need for finings like Isinglass, meaning that all our beers - with the odd exception - are vegan friendly. 

The only beers that are the exception to the rule will be fairly obvious, like our Imperial Oyster Stout which is made with fresh oysters, but we'll be sure to note this detail on the individual pages for each beer. 

HOW CAN I KEEP UP TO DATE WITH NEW BEER RELEASES?

The best way to keep up to date is to subscribe to our newsletter, and to follow us on social media. We’re on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and we keep track of these 24/7 so if you have a question about our limited editions this is your best bet!
