My Mission


To enjoy creating premium Belgian Style Beers in the UK which are perfect for sharing, on their own, or to be paired with fine foods.

My METHOD


All my beers are brewed to traditional Belgian methods – a time consuming process which adds to the complex flavours in the beers. I use top quality ingredients, with no artificial colours or preservatives. All the beers are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, as unlike some breweries, I do not use any animal derivatives to ‘clear’ the beer. Because of this, they are often naturally cloudy, and will have natural yeast sediment at the bottom of the bottle.
Each step of the process is scrutinised to ensure quality and consistency. The beers will not leave the brewery unless the team and I are 100% satisfied with the taste.

My MADNESS


Brewing great beer takes great time… ‘brew day’ to ‘glass’ takes at least 2 months. This is just one of the ways I create unique characteristics in all the beers, something which big commercial brewers are unlikely to reproduce.

My Results

Tripel


The term ‘Tripel’ originated from Belgian Brewers using 3 times the amount of malt to brew a beer – so that’s exactly what I do! Unsurprisingly this creates something pretty special… a 9% abv beer which is complex, robust, yet with a smooth elegant finish. You could be forgiven for thinking that it’s going to be too strong for me, but balanced with a little residual sweetness, this becomes a delightful drop, which is my personal favourite.

Saison


Traditionally Saison beers were brewed in farmhouses, often in the cooler months, and saved for the seasonal workers (saisonniers) to drink in the hot summer months as a refreshing and clean source of hydration! I like to think my ‘Saison’ is a beer those hard working ‘saisonniers’ would have enjoyed again and again.
Made in a similar way to the Tripel (yet a little lighter), this is a refreshing drop which, thanks to the invention of refrigeration, can now be enjoyed all year round .

Wheat


Our Wheat beer is as traditional as you can get. A fine balance between wheat and pilsner malts combined with Coriander and Orange Peel gives it a smooth and refreshing finish.

Dubbel


This top quality Dubbel (or ‘Brune’ as it is often called), is a robust dark beer, and a favourite at the dinner table as it pairs well with many foods. Our Dubbel is made with 5 types of malts, all of which enhance the complexity in this fabulous brew!

Pale Ale


Although called a ‘Pale Ale’ this beer is actually quite chocolatey in colour – very traditional for a ‘Belgian Pale’. It is a light and toasty, easy to drink session ale, with hints of nutmeg, caramel and a long smooth delicious malty finish.

Raspberry / Framboos


My Raspberry Beer or ‘Framboos’ is my most sought after brew to date. Made with real fruit (I don’t like chemical taste enhancers), it begins life as a premium quality wheat beer, to which I add ample quantities of whole raspberries during the fermentation process. The results… a truly exceptional fruit beer which is made in very limited quantities.

Pinot


Our first collaboration beer with our good friends from Oakengrove Vineyard. This ‘Pinot’ Beer displays all the typical Pinot Noir characteristics of blackcurrants and strawberries on the nose, yet on the palate the full bodied wheat beer comes through – A spectacular fusion of grapes and grains!

At the moment, this beer is only available directly from our brewery shop due to very limited quantities.

Cherry


Made to the same stringent specifications as the Raspberry beer, this Cherry beer really shows what can be achieved when you don’t cut corners on costs! The beer spends a minimum of two weeks in the fermenters soaking up all the colour and flavour from whole cherries. This brewing method achieves a truly fabulous deep crimson colour, rich fresh cherries on the nose, and a deliciously dry and slightly sour finish on the palate.
