We have introduced a new beer for the summer.

Eton Boatman is our second golden ale – perfect for cheering on the Olympic rowing outdoors.

Eton Boatman has a fresh clean and full flavoured taste with an ABV of 4.3%. It is brewed with a combination of American Citra hops with citrus flavours and Australian Galaxy hops with hints of exotic fruit.

All the 2012 London Olympic rowing events take place at Dorney Lake less than a mile away from our brewery. Owned and run by Eton College, it has become the top rowing centre in the UK.

Eton Boatman is now available in pubs and is available from the brewery shop in casks, 5 litre minicasks & minikegs plus 2 litre PET bottles.

Cask at The King’s Arms in Windsor. Citra hops always give a decent been. This went down well in the sun. Cheers.
