In 2003, six months after start-up, my beers were supplied to the CAMRA festival at Peterborough, which after London is the biggest UK beer festival. In the new brewery class in which there were over 60 beers, 'Blythe Bitter' was second. I have been fortunate with others awards since

The brewery idea started in 2002 at a converted barn in rural Staffordshire. Overlooking fields and the river Blythe this has proved to be the perfect location.

All the beers produced are traditional cask or bottle-conditioned.

Actual brewing started in 2003 and the plant is small at only 2.5 barrel capacity (90 gallon)

Two beers were initially produced but this has now expanded to five all-year round beers plus seasonals and specials. All the beers are named after local people, places or events.

A third fermenting vessel was installed in 2005 and at most 1200 litres are produced per week.

Available both cask conditioned and bottle conditioned

Traditionally brewed beers from the heart of rural staffordshire
