The Beers

All our beers are craft-brewed by a small dedicated team, master-brewer Andy Capel, apprentice Aiden & head-honcho Andy all roll up their sleeves!  Our beers are distributed through bars, pubs and restaurants, as well as selected off-trade partners and wholesalers. Ainsty Ales Brewery has a 10 barrel Brewhouse with a 12 barrel mash tun, a hot & cold liquor tank and kettle.  It also houses three fermenters and conditioning tanks.

We’re lucky enough to grow our own hops next to the brewery! these produce enough to green-hop a few batches of beer each year and provide a great talking point for tours!
