Our Beers

Hand crafted beer with all natural ingredients

Great Ale Since 1843

We believe that without raw materials of exceptional quality it is impossible to produce first-rate beers. This is why we go to great efforts to source the best malted barley from around the UK and spend the hop harvest every year picking out the finest grown hops for our Ales. We have a staple of distinctive regular beers and also introduce seasonal and special ales throughout the year.

PETER'S PORTER is back! – Our popular guest ale has been brewed to an ABV of 4.8%, and is smooth, dark and delicious – reminiscent of the ale once popular with London’s market porters. Peter’s Porter is named after the Peter Arkell, brewery chairman for 39 years until he passed away in 2010.

Moonlight (ABV: 4.5%)
Image

Brewed to mark the 100th anniversary this year of the Royal Air Force.

Moonlight was originally a special in 2003 to celebrate the 80th birthday of Peter Arkell OBE, the late father of the present Chairman James. The name moonlight portrays Peter's missions flying low-level sorties over France in 1943, picking up agents in occupied territory using the moon to land. The label on the bottle has a Lysander plane on it, which Peter Arkell actually flew in. Now a regular beer, Moonlight has a golden auburn colour with a warm toasty aroma and distinctive citrus hoppy flavour from Celeia hops.

Bottled Beers

We also bottle some of our beers, which we first started way back in the 1930s. This requires a careful conditioning process in the brewery in our cold tanks, before the beers are gently filtered to increase the shelf life and filled into bottles. Our regular bottled beers available are KINGSDOWN, MOONLIGHT, HOPERATION & WILTSHIRE GOLD, plus our newer beers pictured below incl. HONEY PALE ALE, MALTHOUSE CRAFT LAGER, MUSTANG BLACK, PIONEER & DESI BIYAR.

All are available to buy at our Grape & Grain Wine & Brewery Warehouse, plus online for delivery in the UK.
