Quantock Brewery produce a range of traditional and modern beers, four of their cask beers recently joined our lineup!
Their biggest success story of this year is the multi award-winning QPA cask ale which in 2019 alone has won Gold at the SIBA South Independent Beer Awards; Silver at the International Challenge, the SIBA South West Independent Beer Awards, and at the SIBA Regional Keg Independent Beer Awards, and Bronze at the World Beer Awards. This Pale Ale is extremely light in colour, crafted using US hops, giving massive citrus flavour and aroma.
From the traditional range Wills Neck cask ale is a late hopped golden ale with Chinook and Cascade hops, with tonnes of aroma and flavour. Wills Neck won bronze at the 2018 SIBA South West Independent Beer Award.
Plastered Pheasant cask ale is a rich dark amber bitter with a fruity aroma and smooth toffee and coffee flavours.
Whilst, Quantock Stout cask ale has roasted barley and chocolate malts, with an aroma of citrus, liquorice, chocolate and coffee flavours.
Established in 2007, Quantock Brewery's philosophy is to brew the highest quality ales using the best natural ingredients. This philosophy has paid off - the brewery has won 82 awards since its inception, 11 of which have been won this year including a bronze in the World Beer Awards and two silver awards in the International Beer Challenge.
Established in 2007 by head brewer Rob Rainey, a former nuclear engineer, all the beers are brewed entirely from the highest quality grain and whole hop cones, the only other ingredients being yeast and water.
No chemicals or sugar are added to the beers to ensure flavour is pure which delivers a very different taste experience to mass-produced beers.
Quantock Brewery is a CAMRA and SIBA accredited microbrewery. The brew house currently has 8 fermenters enabling production of 5 brews per week, with over 2300 pints per brew. Current production capacity is 160 casks or 11,500 bottles per week.
The brewhouse also features a HOPGUN which replaces the traditional dry hop brewing process and allows the brewing team to infuse a more intense level of flavour and aroma directly into the craft beers.
