A brief summary since 1993

Hatched in 1993, at a time when most ales on the market were brown, Rooster’s Brewing Co. fast developed a reputation for brewing ground-breaking, hop-forward pale ales that showcase exciting new hops from the USA.

Fast forward over twenty years and we’re still crazy about hops and the flavours they impart on beer – our hop store is crammed full of varieties from all over the world; from Australia and New Zealand to Slovenia and North America. But that’s not to say we don’t enjoy playing around with other flavours and styles of beer along the way.

Beers such as Yankee® soon started to attract the attention of judges at beer festivals across the UK, racking up countless awards along the way. One of the original, new-style, pale ales to be brewed in the UK, Yankee® is now a modern classic.

Over the years the awards have kept coming, but on a slightly larger scale, with YPA® picking up back to back gold medals at the prestigious World Beer Cup in recent times, whilst Baby-Faced Assassin also won a medal at the 2015 International Beer Awards.

Although initially a cask-only brewery, we now package our beers in four formats (cask, keg, bottle and can), having invested in our own canning line in 2014, which also allows us to keg a selection of our beers in-house.

It is our continued aim to produce the highest quality, clean-drinking beers possible, whilst also continuing to experiment and innovate, as new beer styles evolve and customer curiosity grows.



California Common
Alc. 4.2% Vol.
Made famous by the breweries of San Francisco and often referred to as a Steam Beer, California Common is a West Coast amber ale fermented with a lager yeast. Caramel maltiness harmonises with fruity hop characteristics to create a medium level of bitterness and a smooth finish.
Availability: July - September
Alc. 4.8% Vol.
This pale ale isn’t quite a Pilsner, but it’s been brewed with Noble hops from Germany and Czech Republic, along with Pilsner and Munich malts, before being fermented at a low temperature.
Availability: July - September
The Accomplice
Alc. 5.7% Vol.
Originally a collaboration brew with Odell Brewing Co., Fort Collins, Colorado, The Accomplice is a pale ale as prepared for India that’s been brewed using six different varieties of hops, crammed into almost every possible part of the brewing process, to create intense floral and fruit aromas, backed up by a balanced level of bitterness, layered on top of a blend of three malts.
Availability: July
7th Inning Strecth
Alc. 4.3% Vol.
Named after a well-known baseball tradition, this pale ale is a celebration of America and the incredible hops that are grown on the other side of the pond. Seventh Inning Stretch uses three of the best (Amarillo, Chinook and Simcoe), displaying orange, lemon and grapefruit qualities, with a lasting bitter finish.
Availability: July
Alc. 5.5% Vol.
A dark beer with a hint of coffee on the finish, brewed using four malts, English hops and the addition of Taylors of Harrogate After Dark coffee, Londinium is a nod to the beer of yesteryear and, in particular, the style made popular by the street and river porters of London in the 18th century.
Availability: July & August
Alc. 5.3% Vol.
Brewed in Cornwall in collaboration with St Austell, Grandview is a hop-forward West coast American pale ale brewed and dry-hopped with a blend of Mosaic and Citra hops. The beer also uses a West coast yeast strain and displays bold citrus and tropical fruit aromas.
Availability: July
Alc. 4.7% Vol.
We’ve delved into the archives to brew one of Sean Franklin’s favourite recipes. Cream is a premium aromatic bitter that showcases the Liberty hop, which is from Washington State in the USA. Soft Yorkshire water creates a smooth bitterness, with a slightly citrus and spiced finish.

Busy morning in the Brewhouse. Much coffee needed!

At the end of April we hooked up with our friends at The Bronx Brewery in New York to spend a day brewing with them...

More Conditioning vessels imminent.

Following a successful launch event last year, we’re excited to be hosting our second annual Brewery Open Day on Saturday July 16th.
