We recently debuted our new session strength pale ale ‘Rise and Shine’ at Poole beer festival, alongside our porter Arthur Wellington Brown.

The fact that we served it super cold raised some eyebrows with the traditionalist crowd but overall customer feedback for ‘Rise and Shine’ was incredibly positive, we have to say its one of our favourite brews so far. Hearing people when they take that first sip say “ooohh!” is a great feeling.

‘Rise and Shine’ wasn’t in competition, but in the main hall, our porter Arthur Wellington Brown quietly picked up enought votes to come 5th overall. Considering there were 89 beers on tap at the festival, we’d say that’s a pretty good result! If you voted, thank-you so much, we’re loving that you love it.
