HISTORY

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 nearly twenty-five 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 won a bronze medal at the 2015 International Beer Awards, as well as a gold and bronze in 2017. Yankee also scooped a silver at the 2017 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.

There's nothing like digging out the mash to warm you up on a chilly January day.



Late last year we brewed a beer called Howl, which was a 6.8% imperial stout that was conditioned on rum barrel oak and released a cask-only limited edition beer in the run up to Christmas. What we didn’t tell anyone was that we squirreled 5 BBLs of the original beer away...
