Pale & Refreshing
Ghost Ship is a ghostly pale ale which takes its inspiration from Adnams 600-year-old haunted pub, The Bell
Ruby & Hoppy
Fuller's London Pride is an award-winning classic. A rich, smooth and wonderfully balanced beer, its distinctive malty base is complemented by well developed hop character, from adding Target, Challenger and Northdown varieties to the brew.
Described by leading beer writer Roger Protz as “an astonishingly complex ale for its strength”, its flavour has been likened by Stephen Cox, beer writer and former campaigns director at CAMRA, to “the sensation of angels dancing on the tongue...”!
St Austell - Tribute
Amber & Fruity
"Tribute is a magnificent example of a bronze coloured English bitter, with a rich aroma of biscuity malt and tart citrus fruit from the Willamette hops. Juicy malt, hop resins and tangy fruit coat the tongue, while the finish is long and lingering, with a fine balance between malt, hops and fruit, finally becoming dry and bitter."
Golden & Refreshing
A modern, fresh and fruity cask beer brewed using a blend of contemporary English ingredients with American late-hopping. This blockbusting beer begins with a gentle malt sweetness, leading to a lingering, bitter finish.
The story behind the name...
Josephine is the unsung hero of our story and the love of Charlie's life. In the same way, he was her 'Anchorman'. Charlie is central to our brewing story, a dependable family-man with a visionary outlook. With Josephine by his side, the wind was in his sails and a family brewing business became firmly anchored in Bedford.
