Life Of Our New Master Brewer – Part Two…


Below is the second installment from our new Head¬†Brewer and Beer Sommelier Derek Orford…

It’s my third week at the brewery, but last weekend my focus was on moving into my new home at West Bridgford. It’s a lovely area, but there’s one thing wrong…none of our beers are currently available there on draft! Something for us to work on! If you have a favourite pub in and around West Bridgford where you’d like to find our beers then please let us know.

After the traditional post-Christmas lull, drinkers are getting out and about a bit more as we approach Easter. So we’re getting busy, and a big help this week was the freeze in beer duty. Avoiding an increase, along with all the paperwork that goes with it, is a huge plus. Did you know that 52 pence from every pint already goes to the taxman?

This weekend I’m going to stroll across the river to The¬†Embankment and it’s Dispensary bar to see how our award winning Dark Horse Mild is going down. Mild is one of my favourite beer styles and is making a comeback. Hope to see you there!
