Real Cornish Ale
Hand Brewed in Penryn

Cornish Craft Ales

At the moment we have a range of four main beers, and are experimenting with new recipes all the time. See below for details and tasting notes...

Penryn Company Amber Ale (4% ABV - cask and bottle)

Taste: A fruity session beer, with a pleasantly hoppy, biscuity-bitter finish. Versatile and easy drinking, it can be enjoyed on its own or as an accompaniment to food.

History: Brewed to coincide with the centenary of the First World War in 2014, and to commemorate the local people from Penryn who served. Portraits of four different servicemen - all hailing from the Penryn area - feature on each of the labels, along with their full names and ranks.

Bronescombe's Vision Best Bitter (5.2% ABV - cask and bottle)

Taste: A deep-coloured, hearty bitter— a malty, fruity aroma and a dry, pleasantly bitter finish with lovely overtones of fresh marzipan.

History: Walter Bronescombe was the Bishop of Exter in the 13th century, and founded the ecclesiastical hub of Europe - Glasney College, Penryn - after being 'visited' by Sir Thomas Beckett whilst in a state of delirium.

Glasney College Porter (5.4% ABV - cask and bottle)

Taste: An intense, lingering, ruby-black porter with aromas of coffee and dark chocolate. Silky smooth and very easy-going, it has a smoky, gently bittersweet finish. Good with meats and strong cheeses.

History: Modelled on the cathedral of Exeter, Glasney College in Penryn was one of the most important institutions for the local community for over 300 years, and was famous worldwide.

Summer Solstice Golden Ale (4% ABV)

Summer Solstice is an English Summer ale, brewed with Maris Otter pale malt with a subtle blend of Target and Citra hops to produce a refreshing golden ale.

The Summer Solstice has been associated with many ancient summer traditions and has always been recognised as a pivotal point in the seasonal calendar and of celebrations with family and friends.
