ABV 4.0% Bitter
A classic country ale from Dorset using a single hop variety for purity and character.
An auburn coloured ale at a moreish 4.3%, Firkin Fox combines our finest Flagon premium ale malt with the biscuity and aromatic qualities of our speciality malts.
Fursty Ferret has a sweet nutty palate, hoppy aroma and a hint of Seville oranges, give this tawny amber ale its distinctive personality.
ABV 4.5% India Pale Ale
A pale 4.5% beer with generous amounts of British Jester, Admiral and Goldings hops.
This award-winning classic is a deliciously balanced ale with peach and melon flavours.
This is a refreshing ale with a unique hoppy aroma and well-balanced bitterness that is bound to satisfy!
Other ducks stick to rivers and ponds, this mischievous mallard bravely ventures to the brewery gates to pinch prized hops blown wayward from the stores. His boldness inspires this amber beer,
brewed with Slovenian Celeia hops.
This golden brew balances the citrus character of American Amarillo hops with the more traditional British Fuggles hops for a refreshing and punchy beer.
With the hot summer sun beating down, the patient fly-fishermen of the Dorset Stour await their catch. These ‘Flyers’ are celebrated in this warming ale with ginger overtones, rumoured to be originally included to remedy the bites of the infamous Blandford Fly. The added ginger makes this beer naturally cloudy
ABV 5.0% India Pale Ale
Dark and deceptive, this experimental Black IPA promises to send you on a roasted, smoke-filled journey but don’t be fooled. Azacca and Belma hops pack an unexpected punch of pineapple, mango and grapefruit to confuse the senses. Paradox – maybe? Knock-out – absolutely!
The subtle elderflower aromas of this delicately floral brew are reminiscent of a summer's evening.
ABV 5.0% Premium Bitter
Tanglefoot is a traditional premium ale with a light golden colour. It has a noticeable floral dry hop aroma, balanced with biscuity and fruity notes. A full bodied ale with medium bitterness and a rounded smooth, hoppy flavour.
40 Shades of Pink
From the Hall & Woodhouse Pilot Plant a kriek-style cherry beer. This limited edition beer has a light malt base with Magnum and Hallertau Select hops. A stunning fruity cerise ale that espouses youthful vitality, with cherry fruit notes and spicy undertones. After the primary fermentation, cherry juice is added to give a secondary fruit fermentation.
Napoleonic Pale Ale
A warming 6.0% beer fit to feed an army. A strong ale worthy of Hall & Woodhouse’s 1777 origins, when the companied supplied beer to the troops during the Napoleonic wars.
This rich, smooth brew has a softly spiced sweetness with dark liquorice notes and a fruity damson aroma.
Winter's Tale 1058 Strong Ale
From the Hall & Woodhouse Pilot Plant a full bodied winter style beer bringing together our premium ale, chocolate and crystal malts. The hop charge is provided by the English varieties of Boadicea & Sovereign making this a very drinkable strong ale.
ABV 6.5% Golden Ale
An artisanal golden brew, infused with basil and fermented with Belgian yeast. Herbal and spicy undertones make for a deceptively easy drinking and refreshing Saison style ale but at 6% beware of the Basilisk’s bite!!
ABV 8.7% Porter/Stout/Mild
This powerful imperial stout boasts rich, dark malt notes, bursting with chocolate and coffee flavours. With a strong blend of British varieties including Admiral and Jester hops, this is a beer to sip and savour
