In our latest collaboration, we’ve reunited with Bristol-based brewery Wiper and True. We brewed with the team back in 2016, producing an Amber Ale to coincide with Bristol Beer Week. It was a huge success, selling out super quickly. This batch is twice the size of the first, at 2850L, meaning more beer for thirsty Bristolians this time round.   Before getting...

The real cost of this waste is felt by the planet rather than our wallets, as we're chucking away all the energy, resources and human effort that goes into making those hearty, delicious meals.

We're continuing to experiment with new flavours and beer styles in our collaborations with breweries. Our latest, with new forward-thinking brewers at Mad Squirrel, is our very first Red Ale. Aran is a Soda Bread Red Ale made with surplus bread from sandwich makers Adelie - the end slice of the loaves that they don't use for sandwiches. Aran is a full-bodied...

Brakspear is a long standing brewery in the heart of Oxfordshire. Established over 200 years ago, the beer has become famous in Henley and surrounding areas. They also have a small chain of pubs, which though modern are dedicated to keeping real ale alive in England, from the Cotswolds to Brighton. We’re delighted to have worked with Brakspears to create...
