About Summerskills

We produce a range of cask and bottle conditioned real ales from ingredients sourced as locally as possible. The majority of the hops we use are grown in Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The fermentation yeast is ‘wet’ reducing the amount of waste yeast from each brew and allowing the strain to develop its own distinctive characteristics. Our spent grains, the remains of the malted barley after mashing, are collected by a local farmer and fed to his cattle.
