Scrum Down


Celebrating its 15th year in the Championship, Nice Try dusts off its boots once more to prop up the bar and help you support all 6 nations. Crouch, bind and drink (responsibly of course!) this smooth malty, light fruit aroma amber beer. Beautifully balanced and brewed to celebrate all that’s great about rugby this easy drinking ale will support you for the full 80 minutes and beyond and whatever the result you’ll be assured of a cracking pint with which to celebrate or commiserate!

To celebrate kick off we’ll be at The Red Lion, Ilmington on Thursday 2nd February with a barrel of our Nice Try for you to convert! Come along from 6pm – 8pm and enjoy free samples, a tasty selection of sausages from local Moreton-in-Marsh butcher Checketts and live music. The brewers will be on hand to give you the lowdown on how they created this crowd pleasing ale and the ways and workings of the brewery and all things beer. Sounds like the perfect night out to us – real good times in a real good pub – see you at the bar!

Nice Try 3.8% ABV

Fuggles, Goldings and Challenger hops scrum down with Maris Otter Pale Ale, Enzymic and Crystal malts to convert into this match winning ale.

Nice Try will be lining up on the bar at the brewery, in Hook Norton pubs across Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire and will also be available to be selected for the free trade.

Available in cask for a limited time only, catch it while you can!
