Explore the taste sensation fresh from the Med! Fallen Angel with a Sicilian twist, bags of fresh lemons added to this beauty, topped off with a bottle of Limoncello, bellissimo!


The addition of dry hops to the original Brewt recipe gives this beer a far stronger aroma and a rather healthy dose of bitterness.  A brut-al bashing of the taste buds!

Super Santa’s Blotto

A real punch of hop flavour, and a pineapple and grapefruit aroma, give a sweet edge to this dry,hoppy, golden ale.  Perfect for rooftop shenanigans!


Wolfsbane – Smashed ‘n’ Blind

A real head banger! Tamworth band Wolfsbane were guest brewers on this one, a brown, well balanced malty ale with soft fruit aroma

Wilde Thing

Made with even more American hops than before, pale malt and a little crystal. Tangy with a hint of nuttiness.

Anchor Gold

A light brown malt driven bitter. Crystal and chocolate malts are offset by Cluster and Cascade from the USA. It should be a real gobful of flavour! Originally brewed for Gerry at the Anchor in Digbeth, Birmingham for one of his Church End festivals towards the end of the 90’s.

Brews Brothers

Brewed to commemorate one of the first brewers, Darren
Wood driving his Moggy Minor in front of articulated lorry.
Think bruise... Very fortunately Darren, the lorry and the driver
escaped unscathed whereas the Moggy Minor was written off.
A real shame as we used to do the odd delivery in it. Pale and
hoppy bitter with Bramling Cross hops for flavour and aroma.
1996 or 1997.

Mild Quaker

A Midlands mild brewed as a house beer for Harry at the Nursery Tavern in Coventry. It was intended to be a contrast to Gravediggers (original name Summer Nights) so Mild Quaker is light brown and slightly sweet. Lightly hopped with Challenger and Fuggles. First made towards the end of 1995. We vaguely remember it being about £1.15 ish per pint!!!

Gold Tea

A golden bitter first produced for Ray at the Hawne Tavern in Halesowen in the late 90’s. His brief was to create a ‘traditional English ale’, the malt we use has always been English so this just left the hops. We plumped for the variety Phoenix which gives a slight floral, pine aroma with a bit of spice as well.

M Reg

The original brew. Gyle 1 on the 1st of August 1994 brewed by Stewart. Named after the registration plate which at the time were changed on the 1st of August every year. Consecutive registration brews were N, P, R, S etc until the system changed. Each one was brewed with a single variety of hop and the same pale malt recipe.. A very pale and hoppy bitter made with Northdown hops.

V Reg

Another registration brew, this time hopped with Cluster. And from the name we can work out it was first made on August 1st 1999, just two years before we moved to our current site on Ridge Lane in 2001.

Xmas Down Under

A rich brown Christmas ale. Chocolate and crystal malts give flavour which is balanced by soft hoppy spiciness from the hop which is Hallertau Hersbrucker, a variety grown in Germany. An early recipe, probably 1996 or 1997 brewed for the now defunct wholesaler Beer Connosieur.

Love Potion

Je t’aime! A pale brown malty treat, with a hint of spicy hoppiness to warm your heart. A perfect valentine treat for yourself, possibly not for your better half though!

Mild Quaker

Mild Quaker is light brown and slightly sweet. Lightly hopped with Challenger and Fuggles

Anchor Bitter

A pale and hoppy bitter, with a slightly lemony, orangey aroma

Mike’s Meteor

Deep gold in colour, and softly hopped. This is an aromatic bitter, with hints of tropical fruit

Stout Digger

A smooth black beer, with a subtle roast flavour

Texas Road Kill A cornucopia of American hops to honor the Texan armadillo. Pale, with bags of hop flavour. P.S. It’s illegal to eat road kill in Texas! 4
Wolfy Fox

Blend of WTFH and Wolfsbane. Malty, and deep browny/gold in colour
