About Us

Stratford-upon-Avon's newest and only brewery ...

In fact, we're more that Stratford-upon-Avon's only brewery, we're also one of the UK's most eco-friendly too.

And luckily for our customers, being ecologically sound goes nicely hand-in-hand with producing great tasting beer, with no additives or chemicals.


Water from our own well, six varieties of hops grown on our land and our solar powered brewery are just part of what makes the Stratford-upon-Avon Brewery unique.

Even our left-over malts and hops get recycled with the help of our hungry pigs.

 

How We Brew Our Beers

STAGE 1 There are four main ingredients that we need to make our beer, these are water, malted barley, hops and yeast. Some of our hops are grown here on the farm and we use a very local hop supplier, thus keeping everything eco-friendly.
   
STAGE 2 The beer's life starts here ... we mix our water with our malts in a mash tun. This is left to stand for up to 90 minutes whilst the starch is converted into fermentable sugars known as our wort.
   
STAGE 3 Our malts job is finished, the malts go to some very hungry and happy pigs on our farm. What is left is brought to the boil where we add our hops to introduce bitterness, flavours and aromas.
   
STAGE 4 Once the boil is complete, our wort is cooled and transferred to a fermentation tank. Yeast is added to feed off the sugars which turn the sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide. This takes between 3 to 6 days.
   
STAGE 5 Once fermentation is complete, we rack our beer into casks with finings to help make it crystal clear. A small amount of yeast is still in the beer for secondary fermentation for cask conditioned ale. This results in a full bodied ale which tastes great!
   
STAGE 6 Our beer is a completely natural product with no added nasties! Our own well water and solar powered machinery make it one of the most eco-friendly beers around! Unfiltered and un-pasteurised ... the most natural of tastes.
