If, when we opened in 2002, we had wanted to put on a festival of outstanding modern beers there would have been a handful to choose from. Marble, Dark Star, Roosters and Oakham would have been obvious choices for their game changing hop-forward beers, as would local real ale heavyweights like Coniston and Barngates. We might have also picked something flashy from a brand new outfit like Wylam as well as a guaranteed crowd pleaser like Hop Back Summer Lightning.
Fifteen years later there has been a craft beer revolution. We’ve brewed juniper beers with Norwegians, 10% imperial stouts with Floridians and sour IPAs with Californians. We’ve watched hundreds of breweries open and invited the ones we like the best to collaborate with us on beers that would have been inconceivable when we started out.
So we’d like to wish ourselves Happy Birthday by inviting you to come and drink our beers, beers from our collaborators and beers from the Class of 2002.
