Our award winning Barnsley Bitter is brewed using the finest quality Maris Otter malt and English hops. Chestnut in colour, having a well rounded, rich flavour, it retains a lasting bitter finish. Brewed using yeast strains used in the 1850’s to brew ’Barnsley Bitter’.

Appearance- dark, mahogany, a two-finger pillowy off-white head. Fairly clear despite the colour. Aroma- caramel, nutty, hints of golden syrup and/or honey, brown bread, toasted nuts, hints of dried dark fruits. Taste- malt-forward, nutty, hints of overdone fruitcake, bready, hints of milk chocolate. Mouthfeel is slightly watery. Solid stuff.

Decent bitter, nothing outstanding but it’s good to support local breweries.
