Back in the day, bottled beers came in a Pint, Half Pint and Quart measures. Many were heavy with a conical shaped top and a screw-in stopper. Later on, bottles became lighter with a crown cap. The Davenports bottle (right) was the starting point for our packaging. Bought on eBay, it still has the beer inside. Our pint (568ml) bottle is lighter again and manufactured in East Anglia.
The bottles are packed and shipped in heavy duty 12 bottle corrugate boxes that convert into durable beer crates. Additionally we supply handmade wooden beer crates. Due to the weight these are delivered seperately (without the beer).
The brewery is housed in old farm buildings in St. Cross on the Norfolk / Suffolk Border
