Beervana Road to Beervana

Our new brewery in Silverdale is now in full stride with a mix of our flavoursome cornerstone beers and some more dynamic concoctions to surprise and challenge the palate. We take time to design, create and brew our beer to true craft standards. Hops and hop blends take centre stage in our beers, sometimes in a subtle ways and sometimes in bold ways but always in fair balance with the malt because it is drinkability we strive for.

Raise your glass with a toast to The Duke and his rye sense of beer appreciation.
