Our Beers

All beers from Half Moon Brewery are crafted in the traditional way, using the finest quality malts from Thomas Fawcett & Son Ltd of Castleford and a variety of U.K. and overseas hops sourced from Charles Faram and Co Ltd of Malvern.   Jo Menneer looks after the beer sampling and produces our tasting notes.

Beers currently available are:-

A  hoppy IPA, deep gold in colour and a strong bitter finish.

A collaboration with Brass Castle Brewery, it’s a black lager, with berry fruit and pine aromas, from the addition of Centennial, Simcoe and Galena hops. There is a full malty lager backbone to the flavour, rounded-off with a gentle roastiness and crisp bitter hop bite in the aftertaste.

A hoppy pale ale
