Your feedback

" We gave some samples to a potential new Bar outlet and we got this back:-
We’ve just broached the Dirty Arthur, and the Mead. With the latter, my wife just said "Oh God! You're buying this in by the pallet load!"... I think she likes it :-)
Lovely, clean, refreshing drink, and we will be taking some from you.
And the Dirty Arthur is lovely too - I'll definitely be adding a cask of this to the list, too.""

"Just bought your Leaping Lord. Loving the taste, look forward to trying the rest of your product."

"Hi. I'm contacting you after having very much enjoyed a couple of pints of Steyning Stinker in the Jack & Jill this weekend."

"I bought a bottle of your Steyning Stinker at the Shoreham Farmers Market on Saturday.
It is a delightful beer, delicious and full of flavour and I will certainly buy more."
Mrs JL

"Just wanted to drop you a line and say what great beer.
I saw the range in Mulberrys in Lancing and bought one of each.
Just finishing off the Beeding Best now after a long day digging and I think this could be the start of a beautiful summer together.
I'm looking forward to trying the others soon. Thanks again."

"Hello. Delighted to find your beer in Hartley's in Steyning, enjoyed the Stinker."

Our beers

The following 5 beers have been certified as Gluten Free available direct from us at our regular farmers markets:
Tubbers Tipple, Sneaky Steamer, Beeding Best, Steyning Stinker and Dirty Arthur.

Tubbers' Tipple

A Premium Bitter 5.6% ABV

Named after those intrepid folk who braved the River Adur avoiding flour bombs and eggs in nothing more than glorified bath tubs, staying afloat long enough to paddle from Upper Beeding to Shoreham. Had our brewery been there at the time we are sure they would have stopped on the way and enjoyed this ‘oarsome’ beer worthy of their name.

The beer has an earthy / spicy characteristic with just a hint of honey.

Sneaky Steamer

A Hoppy Beer 5.1% ABV

One of our directors has a passion for steam engines. His Burrell steam traction engine “Lion Lord of the Forest” was built in 1916 and can often be seen being driven around the locality.

Four different hops are used in this beer giving it a pine / floral characteristic with a hint of grapefruit.

Beeding Best Bitter

A Best Bitter 4.2% ABV

The Brewery is based within the South Downs National Park on the banks of the River Adur. On the outskirts of Upper Beeding, so a bit of a no-brainer name for this one.

The beer has a pine / floral characteristic with just a hint of liquorice.

Steyning Stinker

A Smoked Beer 4.0% ABV

Before Dr. Beeching closed down the railways, the regular steam train that called at Steyning and Bramber was the Steyning Flyer, it was more affectionately known by the locals as the Steyning Stinker! We have used smoked and chocolate malts to achieve a distinctive smoky flavour.

The hops used give the beer a slight fruity / spicy edge to compliment the earthy and smoked flavour from the grain.

Tangmere Tower

A Golden ale 4.4% ABV

The beer is brewed in a style which would have been familiar in the time of the Battle of Britain and the D-Day Landings. We have only used British hops giving the beer a clean crisp taste with a subtle hint of spice.

Developed in conjunction with the “Save Tangmere Tower” group, a contribution to the funds will be made for each beer sold.

Bee Ding Mead

Fermented Honey 3.6% ABV

Mead was produced in ancient history throughout Europe, Africa and Asia, it has played an important role in the mythology of some peoples.

Our mead is best served cold straight from the fridge.

Seasonal range

Rambling Monarch

A Light Beer 3.6% ABV

Rambling Monarch is a light refreshing summer ale best enjoyed after a walk along the Monarch's Way which passes through Bramber and Upper Beeding following the route of King Charles II's escape to France from Shoreham in 1651.

The floral, citrus/spicy aroma of East Kent & Styrian Golding hops is followed by the classic bitter taste of Challenger hops leaving the drinker suitably refreshed to continue their on their way.

This seasonal beer has been brewed to celebrate our current monarch's 90th birthday.

Leaping Lord

Dark & Spicy 6.6% ABV

A strong dark and spicy Winter Ale for those autumnal evenings as the nights draw in. Combining the smooth bitterness of East Kent Golding’s hops with the aroma and taste of the fruits and spices associated with this time of the year. Hints of Orange, Ginger, Nutmeg and other exotic spices give the drinker the experience of Christmas in a bottle.

It can also be enjoyed in those cold dark evenings of January and February beside the fire as a relaxing drink to warm the cockles of your heart.

Dirty Arthur

Dry hopped 4.9% ABV

This beer was brewed to celebrate the 150 year anniversary of St. Marys School Washington, and is named after an old boy, Arthur Adsett. He was caned at school for being muddy hence his nickname. Arthur was killed at the battle of the Somme in World War 1 so the beer is brewed with three different hops, all grown in the Flanders area.

It has been dry hopped with Saphir giving it a huge citrus/orange taste.
