Our Beer

Ploughman’s Pride

Ploughman’s Pride

Ploughman’s Pride is a dark, easy-drinking best-bitter. There’s more malty flavour present here than in most other bitters. Riding atop those sweet, rich waves of flavour is a very slight hoppy bitterness — never overpowering, just a bit of an edge.

Behind the name
The ploughman’s pride was the straightest furrow. His reward to himself after a long day in the fields was just a pint of his favourite beer, so the furrows would be just as straight tomorrow.

Available In: Cask

ABV: 4.2% Type: Bitter

Liquorice Lads Stout

Liquorice Lads Stout

This stout combines heady aromas of Pontefract cakes with German hops, roast malt flavours, and, of course, real liquorice! These rich and unique flavourings have won LLS a SIBA gold medal, as well as a World Beer Awards bronze medal.

Behind the name
This beer honours the young men who, historically, dug up liquorice for the sweet factories of West Yorkshire. It also celebrates the ancient crop’s recent reemergence in the county’s farmlands.

Available In: Cask, Bottle, Minikeg, and Polypin

Frothingham Best

Frothingham Best

Our classic best bitter! This moderately-bittered dark ale features aromas of raisins & hazelnuts, a slightly malty base, and resin hop and peach fruit tones for a perfect finish. Named “World’s Best Bitter under 5%” at the 2013 World Beer Awards.

Behind the name
South Frodingham, the home of our brewery, was historically known as Frothingham after the village’s main family. ‘Froth’ and beer; what could be more apt?

Available In: Cask, Bottle, and Polypin

ABV: 4.3% Type: Best bitter

Holderness Dark

Holderness Dark

A stronger, modern version of the mild that was once the country’s staple beer. Deep chestnut with aromas of sweet toffee and grassy hops. H.D has a fantastic chestnut colour, with aromas of sweet toffee and grassy hops. Sweet chocolate malt and hazelnut flavours top it all off for a satisfying finish.

Behind the name
The rich soils of Holderness are perfect conditions for us to grow our malting barley. Because we needed a lot of malt to brew a darker beer like this, the name just seemed obvious!

Available In: Cask, Bottle, Minikeg, and Polypin

Pricky Back Otchan

Pricky Back Otchan

Maths Question: What do you get by adding crystal malt to British, German, and American hops? An easy-going golden ale, of course! Otchan’s a wonderfully robust beer with a beautiful depth of smooth, malt flavour, as well as just a hint of sweet citrus on the nose. Our second ever beer, and a fan favourite to this day!

Behind the name
Yorkshire dialect for a hedgehog – ‘Pricky Backed Urchin’. Not to be confused with a ‘Quill Covered Gander’ (a Goose) or a ‘Speedy Mango Lambo’ (a Lamborghini).

Available In: Cask, Bottle, Minikeg, and Polypin

ABV: 4.2% ale Type: Golden

Buck’s Blonde

Buck’s Blonde

A perfect session blonde. This delicately carbonated keg beer features a biscuity malt base and some well-balanced, lemony hop flavours.

Behind the name
This beer is inspired by the deer that roam around the brewery. It’s always surprising how near they’re willing to come, and it’s always been our theory that they just like the brewery’s smells. Unfortunately, deer carry no form of ID, so we’re legally unable to serve them.

Available In: Keg

ABV: 3.8% Type: Session Blonde

Jem’s Stout

Jem’s Stout

Here’s a mahogany-coloured, traditional dark beer. Complex aromas of liquorice, prunes and hop resin combine with deep, rich flavours of coffee and chocolate; it’s a fan favourite! Winner of a SIBA bronze medal.

Behind the name
Brewed in honour of Jem, once a familiar face at the brewery and now remembered on our logo. A black and white drink for a black and white dog.

Available In: Cask, Bottle, Minikeg, and Polypin

ABV: 4.3% Type: Stout

Sleck Dust

Sleck Dust

Our original (and most popular) beer! It’s a straw coloured, easy drinking session ale. There’s a unique floral edge to Sleck that you won’t find in most beers, coming from a precise, closely-guarded blend of Pilgrim and Northern Brewer hops.

Behind the name
“Sleck the Dust” means “Quench the Thirst” — something Yorkshire farmers would get from riding around in combine harvesters before cabs or an AC. Dusty work is thirsty work, and nothing helps with that like a nice pint at the day’s end!

Available In: Cask, Bottle, Polypin, and Minikeg

Cold Snap

Cold Snap

The best of both worlds! We brew this beer with classic lager hops and malts, then use our traditional brewing methods to blend the two styles. It’s a little hoppier than a lager, but smoother than a pale ale. No matter the nomenclature, Cold Snap does happen to be rather tasty.

Behind the name

It’s rare that such a short name can both conjure up a nice, lager-supping image and give precise serving instructions, but Cold Snap gets away with it.
