Completed in 1974, the brilliantly brutalist Heygate Estate was an icon of the south London skyline. It was a bold utopian vision designed to be enjoyed by everyone – just like our signature pale ale. Heygate Pale is a robust, fruity number full of American hops, with a light, straw-like colour and a bold, juicy aroma that leaps out of the glass and demands your attention.
Astoria Saison (6.5% ABV)
Our take on the classic Belgian farmhouse ale gets its name from a 1930s-built theatre that stood on the site now occupied by B&M Bargains on Old Kent Road. Like its namesake, Astoria is dramatic, refreshing and stimulating. An intense hit of citrus fruit comes from a generous addition of fresh orange, lemon and lime peel during the boil, while Czech hops and coriander add earthy spice. Get it as cold as you possibly can, sit yourself down in a sunny field and enjoy.
Asylum Black (5.5% ABV)
The darkest, richest beer in our core range is named after a ruined chapel in Peckham, which once served as a retirement home for pub landlords. Asylum is a pitch-black, decadent beer with more than a hint of madness. So is it a stout? Porter? Black IPA? If we had to define it, we’d call it a multi-dimensional black beer, with late-addition US hops adding complexity to a roasty, toasty malt base. That being a bit of a mouthful, we settled instead on ‘Asylum Black’.
