We love Sutton Coldfield and all that live and work around our beautiful pub. That’s why we’ve named our own beers after the great and the good of Sutton, past and present. Every pump clip tells a story…… from our 5.0% Traditional IPA ‘Marksman’ named as a tribute to the beautiful, young girl who saved King Henry VIII from being attacked by a wild boar, whilst out hunting, and whose actions led to the Tudor Rose becoming the town’s emblem, or in celebration of 16th century visionary ‘Bishop Vesey’ who implemented a plan to create a good living for all residents, the legacy of which still remains today. Or you could try a pint of our Golden Ale ‘004 Oaks’, an affectionate tribute to one-time Four Oaks resident ‘Roger Moore’.
We look forward to welcoming you.
English Style Ale
We have brewed this dry, refreshing golden ale in tribute to one-time Four Oaks resident and Golden Globe winner, none other than our favourite British Secret Service Agent, James Bond – AKA ‘Mr Roger Moore’with his wit, charm and debonair look, he graced the screens as Bond on seven occasions with ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’cited as Moore’s best Bond film ever.
There is much evidence of how Henry VIII’s links to this town have benefited all who live here, not least of all as he was the King who first signed the Royal Charter and granted his trusted and loyal friend Bishop Vesey, a visionary, who developed a town plan based on a set of principles that would address people’s needs of good living, including education, housing and economy, and which the results have endured for over half a millennium. Perhaps it was Henry’s love of hunting and other blood sports that Vesey used strategically to encourage the King to return time and time again to the great hunting grounds of Sutton Park or to the popular spectacle of the time which was bear baiting. Thankfully the bear pit is no longer – it is now a beautiful sunken garden at Moor Hall Hotel & Spa.
Belgian Style Ale
With Sutton Coldfield regularly popping up in the Top 10 Best UK Locations to Live and Bring up a Family, it is easy to see why the 16th Century visionary John Vesey is so revered. From humble beginnings John worked at Moor Hall Farm before studying at Magdalen Hall, Oxford, where he met Thomas Wolsey. It was Wolsey’s influence that led him towards his career in the church and to becoming Chaplain to King Henry VIII, then ultimately Bishop of Exeter. Upon returning to his home town in 1524 to find decay and dilapidation, following many years of war, Vesey was moved to greatly improve the quality of life for his townsfolk and used his respected position and friendship with the King to put his vision of good living into action. He financed the building of homes and a school, repaired churches, resurrected the local economy and lobbied Henry to donate grazing and hunting land to the people, to name but a few. Vesey would have appreciated a glass of our unmalted Belgian classic wheat beer, the perfect toast to the good life!
Stouts & Porters
In tribute to one of Sutton Coldfield’s most famous acting sons Scott Adkins, who as a martial arts expert his most famous role as Yuri Boyka in the 2006 prison boxing film was, you could say, undisputed, not once but twice. Scott’s Black belt in Kick boxing and Taekwondo made him the perfect nemesis to the main character in Undisputed II and Undisputed III. From roles in British soaps like Eastenders and Holby City to Hollywood blockbusters such as The Bourne Ultimatum, Adkin’s mix of talent and skill has a broad attraction. Much like our dark porter with its complex chocolate and roast flavours.
English Style Ale
In celebration of the history of pubs whose mediaeval origin comes from when brewing was carried out in the home by women, and as beer grew in popularity the best ‘ale wives’ started to open up their homes and sell their beer, and as these became gradually more commercial in the 19th century, the ‘public house’ was born. And this very site, named ‘The Cup at Maney’was a popular public house, at that time. Run by Joseph Clibbery and his wife Sarah for many years throughout the 19th century it would have served traditional English Style Ale. So raise a glass of our session bitter and toast the great British public house.
English Style Ale
This light and refreshing ale is the perfect tribute to much loved actor Arthur Lowe, whose ashes are scattered in Sutton Coldfield. He is best remembered as Captain Mainwaring in the long running BBC sitcom Dad’s Army which depicted life in the Home Guard during the Second World War, albeit comically distorted. The series ran from 1968 until 1977, regularly gaining audiences of 18 million viewers, and amazingly is still repeated today, influencing UK popular culture with its catchphrases of “You stupid boy” and “Don’t panic Mr Mainwaring”.
We’ve loaded our Black IPA with American hops as tribute to Suttons famous rower Sidney Genders, who at the age of 50 in 1970 still holds the record for the oldest person to successfully row solo from the southern tip of England to the Unites States. What makes his trip so much more remarkable is that he mistakenly left his water supply in England and instead of turning back, decided to use an upside down umbrella to catch rainwater, until he reached the Canary Islands! Arriving in Miami in his 19-foot-long rowing boat it had taken him 160 days and 8 hours – an amazing achievement!
An amazing story of how the Tudor Rose came to become the emblem for Sutton Coldfield: One day whilst hunting one day in Sutton Park, Henry VIII was subjected to a perilous attach from a wild boar, but before it harmed the King it was killed by an unseen marksman. The King sought out his saviour and was extremely surprised to find out it was a young and beautiful girl. When the King discovered that the girl’s family had been dispossessed of their property by the ruling nobles of the time, he ordered that reinstitution should be made to them and also presented the girl with the Tudor Rose, which from this date forward became the emblem of Sutton Coldfield, the girl’s home town. This IPA, with its intense piney and citrusy flavour certainly hits its mark too!
Belgian Style Ale
Sir John Benjamin Stone, the 19th century businessman, author, politician, philanthropist and pioneer of photography, was an exceedingly good choice for Sutton Coldfield’s 1st ever Mayor, a post which he held for 5 years, during which time he greatly influenced public life. Called the “knight of the camera” by the Spectator his interest in photography since 1860 acted as a most valuable aid to education, bringing images of far travelled places and landmark historic events such as the coronation of Edward VII and George V into the lives of everyday people. A truly unique man.
Stout & Porters
In celebration of the unusual musical instrument called a Mellotron – a type of electronic/mechanical keyboard, popularised by the Beatles who used it on many of their tracks, as well as by a number of the famous groups of the 70s, such as Genesis and The Moody Blues – which will be no surprise when you find out that Mike Pinder, their lead Keyboard player had previously worked at the Streetly factory where the Mellotron was first developed and produced – right here in Sutton Coldfield.
American Style Ale
Our big hoppy red ale is full of rich caramel malts matched to American hops and just bursting with character – a fitting tribute to Sutton Coldfield’s film and television actor ‘Trevor Eve’, most famous for playing the eponymous Eddie Shoestring, a private investigator who in 1979 and 1980 was the must-watch TV star of the moment and again for playing Peter Boyd, Detective Superintendent, the lead role in the award-winning TV police drama ‘Waking The Dead’, and as with every 91 episodes of this hugely popular show, it was all about Eve’s brilliant performance.
English Style Ale
One of British Hockey’s sporting legends ‘Jane Sixsmith MBE’, who has pushed, passed and dribbled her way through FOUR Olympic Games, gaining a Bronze Medal at the 1992 Summer Games in Barcelona, as well as 165 caps for England and 158 caps for Great Britain is the inspiration for our Harvest Ale. Starting out at age 15 playing Sutton Coldfield , Jane’s amazing career is acknowledged by her regularly being referred to as ‘the best player this country has ever produced’- a fitting tribute to our special once a year brewed pale ale!
American Style Ale
Enjoy a pint of this simple Pale Ale with truck loads of piney, grapefruity American hops and raise a refreshing glass to the Nipmuc Indian who gifted a piece of American soil to the Englishman Edward Pratt – you could almost believe you were in a brewpub in Sutton, Worcester, Massachusetts. USA!
