Bowman
Swift One
A pale, golden quaffing ale with excellent flavours for its strength. Pleasingly hoppy throughout without being aggressive and also possessing of a fine aroma. The finish is dry with a small twist of sweetness at the end. If you feel that this is all rather pretentious then it can best be described as a bloody nice pint!

Loxhill Bisciut
A graceful golden beer brewed with Amarillo, First Gold and Challenger hops from the UK and USA. We use three malts; English Maris Otter, German Munich and the favourite, Belgian Biscuit which gives this beer it’s wonderful toasty finish and beautiful golden hue. This beer brings a wonderful balance of sweet floral notes and a subtle orange finish making it our favourite session beer.

Hophead
An extremely clean-drinking pale golden ale with a strong floral aroma and elderflower notes from the Cascade hops. This beer is full-bodied and full-flavoured yet gentle enough to make it a favourite session beer.

Irving
Captain B
A Festival special Spiced Rum Ale that started as a joke! “I will NEVER do a beer called Captain B.........!” said Malc,.. er’ this strong sweet and spicy taste of the Caribbean proves otherwise. Flavours of Cinnamon and Vanilla dominate with dark sugar notes."

Village Hall
Itchen Valley
Belgarum
Named as a tribute to the Roman province of Venta Belgarum, better known today as Winchester. The hop’s flavours are full and juicy but the key to Belgarum is the sweetest of Hampshire honey, offset by elderflower, creating an addictively smooth pint.

Suthwyk
Old Dick
Dick Olding brewed in Southwick Brewhouse from 1906 to 1957, retiring at the ripe old age of 81. He died soon after, taking his recipes with him, but with its old English hops and Southwick malted barley, we are sure that ‘Old Dick’ would approve this way of being remembered.
