Microbrewery

Brewhouse & Kitchen brews. Brewed right here on-site in our microbrewery!

Banker's Draught

3.6%
Session Bitter - English Style Ale

Our session bitter, on draught, is named in honour of all the ‘banker’s drafts’ that have been created right here in this building during its lifetime as the Midland Bank’ and the lives each one would have changed when that house deposit was paid, or a down payment was made on your first car…..

Braxator

4.5%
Amber Ale - American Style Ale

In celebration of Bedford’s brewing heritage and in particular during the 18th Century when, following the decline of the Wool industry, brewing was the most important business for this market town, employing many of the townsfolk as ‘Braxators’ (Old English term for ‘Beer Maker’)

Chief Goober

5.5%
Smoked Porter

As a show of our appreciation for the hugely ambitious 1948 plan to bring good healthcare to all, and Bedford’s Sir George Goober (Chief Medical Officer) part in the creation of the NHS, we have brewed a satisfying smoked porter, packed full of vitamin B, which we hope Chief Goober would approve of.

Fletcher's

5.0%
Rye IPA

Our spicy Rye IPA with just the right amount of ‘dryness’ is a fitting tribute to the sheer comic genius of Bedford-born Ronnie Barker, whose classic TV comedies have been entertaining the British public for decades, including The Two Ronnies , Open All Hours and the BAFTA winning ‘Porridge’ where we played the central character Norman Stanley Fletcher.

Intrepid

4.2%
Pale Ale - American Style Ale

Early life in Lansdowne Road, Bedford would have been very different to the world that Explorer Apsley Cherry-Garrard encountered on his many trips abroad, most notably accompanying Captain Scott on the Terra Nova Expedition to Antarctica between 1910 and 1913.

Night Fever

5.0%
Traditional Porter

Our dark traditional porter with its complex mix of chocolate and roast flavours has been named in tribute to Bedfordshire-born, British-American film director John Badham’s 1977 Epic production ‘Saturday Night Fever, featuring John Travolta, voted one of the most loved films ever!

Preacher John

4.5%
Witbier

This classic wheat beer is a fitting tribute to Bedford-born author John Bunyan’s contribution to the literary world with his classic ‘The Pilgrim’s Progress’ – regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature it has been translated into more than 200 languages and has never been out of print, since 1678!

Sergeant

4.5%
Harvest Ale

Our harvest celebration seasonal ale has been named in tribute to the carefree, cheerful and well-spoken character of Sergeant Wilson in the hugely popular British television sitcom ‘Dad’s Army’. Regularly achieving audiences of 18m plus, it made Bedford-born actor John Le Mesurier a household name from 1968 onwards.

Tasmanian Tom

4.0%
Cream Ale - American Style Ale

This refreshing ale is perfect on a warm Spring day reminding us of sunnier climes, which is possibly what attracted Thomas Chapman to leave his home town of Bedford and search out a new life on the other side of the world, finally settling in Tasmania where he became the Premier in 1861.

The Leveller

4.5%
Kolsch Style Ale

In much the same way as bottom fermenting yeast challenged the way beer was brewed at the turn of the 18th Century, giving rise to the alternative beer we have come to know as Lager, Francis Russell, 5th Duke of Bedford was challenging the typical powdered and tied hairstyle of titled men in 1795 by sporting a completely contrasting cropped, unpowdered style, which was to be known as The Bedford Leveller.

The Sprinter

5.0%
Strong Bitter - English Style Ale

This full-bodied strong bitter, with the finest British hops determining the flavour, is a fitting tribute to Bedford-born Harold Abrahams, who against much adversity became the 1924 Olympic 100m Sprint Champion, portrayed beautifully in the award-winning film ‘Chariots of Fire’.

Invarsity

6.0%
Traditional IPA

‘In’between our two oldest and most famous varsities, Bedford is the exact half-way point between Oxford and Cambridge and during the time the ‘varsity train’ was running, was the natural stop off point for a quick liquid refreshment or bite to eat…

Castle Lane Pale

4.8%
American Pale Ale

Enjoy a pint of this simple Pale Ale with truck loads of piney, grapefruity American hops. Raise a refreshing glass to Charles Higgins, the gentleman who established brewing in Bedford: Founding the brewery at Castle Lane in the 1820s, it remained at the heart of the family until Cecil Higgins decided to sell it to Wells & Winch in order to focus on his ambition to found a museum for the town. That was the start of Charles Wells …..
