Flagship cask ales

Into The Light
Style: Blonde session ale  ABV: 3.5%
A blonde pale ale, incredible all year round. This ale brings session drinking to life. Light in colour, but punches a characterful taste, typical of that of a darker beer.
Forest Gold
Style: Light golden session ale  ABV: 4.0%
This is a well-rounded beer, perfect for both the beer beginner and connoisseur alike. It stays within the session ale range, but with enough ABV bite to make it exciting for even the die-hard ale fans.
Beware The Bear
Style: Chestnut ale  ABV: 4.2%
Shrouded in folklore, this ale punches as much flavour as it does history. A surprising ale with the body of a porter, but the colour of a chestnut. This is a sure fire winner for your pub.
Going Off Half-Cocked
Style: Explosive Forest IPA  ABV: 4.6%
This beer carries a tasty flavour throughout, but sparks a hop taste to finish. A beautiful beer for any occasion, this is a crowd-gatheringly good beer.
Money For Old Rope
An award-winning stout. Classic rich, dark flavours of malt and grain balanced well with an abundance of body to match; even the Irish say it tastes like home.
Over A Barrel
Style: Red ale/porter  ABV: 5.0%
An award-winning, strong Forest ale, dark in colour and rich in flavour. It carries a great mouth-feel and a moreish quality throughout, due to a balanced hopping.

Seasonal cask ales

Of course, throughout the year, we also brew various seasonal beers, such as The King's Shilling, our moreish mild brown ale, or Santa's Little Helper, our festive winter IPA. Check back here soon to see what's available now and next...

Bottled ales & ciders

All of our beers are available in bottles, too. We can cater for anything from a gift pack to a truck load, depending on your requirements. In either case, why not customise your bottles with your own labels? It's the ideal way to add a personal touch to your gift, or put your brand image right into the hands of visitors to your corporate event.

Also available in bottles is Jolly Roger, our rich and fruity cider at 4.5% ABV, named after the so-called 'Pirate of Pillowell', as he was known here in the Forest of Dean. Jolly Roger was a legendary explorer of foreign lands, and his tales of philandering, procrastinating and piracy live long in the taverns of Gloucestershire.
