What we do here at HBC is make beer, great beer, great beer that we enjoy drinking. We also have the opportunity to share our love of beer with visitors who drop by to watch us work, sample our wares or just have a chat. We make a large range of beers with a huge range of colours, aromas & flavours & we firmly believe there is a beer in there for everyone – and the only real way to find out is by visiting us and tasting the beer!
Our brewery is very small, one of the smallest in the country. We strive to create a beer experience for our customers. Visit the brewery, chat to a brewer, watch us at work - the person who made the beer will be pouring the beer for you to enjoy!
Most of our beer is sold on-site, but if you are unable to visit us our beer is available in other locations (several restaurants, pubs and bottleshops) or you can order on-line . Visit Our Store Here.
