We have lots of exciting activities planned and aim to involve as many people as we can throughout the year.

As beer is of course our heart, there will be a number of new limited-edition brews, and some exciting collaborations with other brewers.

We will be celebrating across our pubs, with “rides to the pub” aiming to ride to every pub over the year – by bicycle, motorcycle, and some on a Shire Horse!
Check out the Hooky on Tour dates here.

We’ll be hosting a number of events at the brewery along with getting out and about into a festival field over the summer months so watch this space for dates!
