FAQs

Production

Do you brew all your own beer?


Yes! We brew all our beers in house, in our 5BBL brewhouse. If you visit the shop or bar on a brew day you will be able to smell the brew in progress.




Do you produce gluten-free beer?


Unfortunately, we are not currently able to make gluten-free beer. It is something we are able to offer in the future, once we have upgraded our brewing kit.





Shop

Where can I buy your beer?


You can buy our bottle conditioned beer from our shop on the brewery site at Heckington Windmill. You can also find our beers at a number of local shops and online from Beers of Europe and The Real Ale Store. We have recently joined CAMRA based App Brew2You through which you will be able to buy a range of our beers in 5L and 10L, to be delivered nationally. Find our full range of stockists here. Don't forget our beer is also available on draft in our brewery bar, as well as in a number of pubs across Lincolnshire.




What are your shop opening times?


Currently our shop and bar opening times (from 12th April 2021) are as follows: Monday: 12.00 - 20.00 Tuesday: 12.00 - 20.00 Wednesday: 12.00 - 20.00 Thursday: 12.00 - 20.00 Friday: 12.00 - 20.00 Saturday: 12.00 - 20.00 Sunday: 12.00 - 18.00 The shop may be open earlier during the week, from 10am, although we might be busy in the back making delicious beer, so you will need to shout to get our attention. These times are updated as is necessary, so please keep an eye for any changes.




Do you deliver?


We only deliver directly to pubs and other trade customers. However we can arrange for courier delivery of larger purchases (e.g. 5L mini-casks, 10L bag-in-a-box), within the UK. These must be ordered by phone and paid for via bank transfer. Alternatively you can purchase through one of our stockists.





Bar

How has Coronavirus impacted on your bar?


Our bar is now open (from April 12th 2021), with safety measures in place. Outside seating only, table service provided, groups as per government guidelines. Our off-license shop (located at the brewery) has remained open throughout lockdown.





Aftersales

I have purchased a polypin of beer, and it is pouring cloudy. What should I do?


Our real ales will have sediment in them, therefore we advise that if you have a larger container such as a polypin or mini-cask, that you set the container where you wish to serve from and leave it for 24hours to settle. Temperature is also important and the product should preferaby kept at around 10℃. Cold temperatures can cause chill haze, whilst warmer temperatures will lead the product to deteriorate faster.




Do you recycle the used mini-casks?


Unfortunately, we do not recycle the mini-casks, but there are plenty of ideas online as to how you might repurpose them.
