High Level Sink

Today was a bad day. We spend many hours trying to perfect our brewing, ensuring that the beer goes through the process of mashing, boiling and fermenting with the least amount of error, contamination and off flavours that can occur in beer due to this process. The final stage is always packaging and it’s with a heavy heart that today we pour 800 litres of what was a cracking pale ale down the drain and it’s all down to oxygen. Due to…

Neil Halstead & Guests

Frontman and principle songwriter of legendary 1990s shoegaze outfit, ‘Slowdive’, Neil Halstead is also a successful solo artist and arguably one of Britain’s greatest contemporary songwriters. Slowdive broke up in 1995, transforming into Mojave 3. With Neil at the helm, the new band fused jangly alt country with psychedelic dream-pop, releasing a stream of critically acclaimed records. Mojave 3 went on hold in 2006 but Neil continued his career as a solo artist, mining British folk tradition for acoustic sounds…
