Shottle Farm Brewery was launched 2011 ahead of a move to Handley Farm, also in the village, in September 2013.
We usually have one beer on cask available at the bar and 2 or 3 different bottled. We also have 3 bottle presentation packs that are available to purchase and make fantastic gifts.

A rich, dark beer. Smooth and malty. Full bodied, pleasant after taste with undertones of treacle and caramel. The 8/- shilling is a dig at the chancellor; 8/- equates to about 40p, which is the beer duty paid per pint before it leaves the farm. 4.0 ABV. - Not currently available
