Our Cask Ales
Our regular beers are brewed week in week out using the same high quality ingredients to guarantee that consistent flavour. Currently we're brewing three regular beers:
Marmid Gold is a malty blonde ale with a well-rounded slightly sweet finish.
The Legend Of The Marmid
Beneath the still waters of the Ercall Pool
Is said to lay a most beautiful jewel.
Gold nuggets the size of a human head
Would keep a fellow in more than just bread.
But to get this treasure you must be brave
And avoid the Marmid’s watery cave.
Scorned since the day she offered her prize
To two men who did something extremely unwise.
Although we don’t know what it was they did say,
Screams and splashing were all they’d relay.
Offending the Marmid, she fled from their gaze
Now only wishing to lure men to their graves.
Wrekin Giant is a delicious pale ale packed with hoppy flavour giving a clean crisp finish with a distinctive fruity kick.
The Legend of The Wrekin Giant
“The people of Shropshire have to die!”
Said the Welsh giant Grendol, several miles high.
His grudge saw him carry soil so monumental
The effects would not be incremental.
It would fill the entire River Severn,
Flooding the town, sending all to heaven.
Lost and weary, the giant asked for the way
Not leaving out about his dastardly foul play.
But the cobbler needing the town for trade
Lied to the giant saying to reach it would take a crusade!
The soil was dumped there on the grassy skin
Saving the town and creating The Wrekin.
Equinox is a Golden premium ale, with slight tropical fruit flavour and hints of citrus and pepper, leading to a dry finish.
The Equinox Legend
The Equinox happens but twice a year
While the earth’s equator is in a position most queer.
When day and night become of equal length
Is the time The Wicker Man needs his full strength.
For Mother Nature’s gift of the changing seasons
She asks for a sacrifice, for this very reason.
Beneath the Raven’s Bowl, at midday marks
A countdown for when the equinox starts.
The Calendar Stones are blessed with a single ray of light
For a mere ten minutes, blink and miss it you might.
And then at last when all daylight fades
The Wicker Man is burnt right there on the glades.
In addition to the regulars we brew specials throughout the year, these may reflect the season, special events or simply our mood at the time.
Below are our summer specials - proven recipes that are ideal for summer drinking:
A full bodied golden ale, malty with a sweet gingerbread finish.
A medium dry roasted malt and oatmeal porter with hints of coffee and dark chocolate and raisin, like undertones.
This is a German style 'Kristall Weizen' beer - a crystal clear beer, light in colour with a flavour of vanilla and wheat followed by lemon and grapefruit notes to give a citrus finish.

We can also brew on demand consulting with you on suitability of recipes - we've worked with a number of businesses to create a premium beer specifically for them.
