We were very chuffed to win a gold and bronze award for our Underworld Milk Stout at this year's SIBA South East Competition - Gold in it's class and third best beer overall.
We were pretty amazed to discover that we've been named Best New Brewer in Greater London at the RateBeer Best Awards held on the 30th of January. Previous winners of the award have been the excellent Beavertown and Weird Beard, two breweries that we have enormous respect for.
Not too bad for a little brewery in a shed in Surbiton!
The lovely guys at The Evening Star in Brighton have invited us to take over their taps at the end of February. We'll have three of our beers on cask and four more on keg giving a pretty good idea of what we do.
In attendance on the evening will be Nick and Danny, our two brewers, who'll be happy to talk you through the beers and have a chat.
Looking forward to seeing some friendly faces and meeting the beer drinkers of Brighton!
We'll have a heavy presence at the upcoming Sussex Arms Beer Festival in November. We haven't confirmed exact numbers but we'll have 8-10 beers on the cask bar and another 2 on the keg bar.
The event itself is looking pretty excellent with live music on all three nights as well as a hog roast and BBQ. Family friendly too with children welcome until 7pm.
November 13th, 14th and 15th from 11am to Midnight.
We are hosting our first ever Ale and Cider Festival! Over 60 ales and ciders over three days with live music, BBQ & Hog Roast to keep you fed and entertained.

Open from 11am til Midnight each day. Free entry!
