Gorgeous Brewery

Gorgeous Brewery produces eight unique beers, which can be enjoyed at The Bull, on tap or bottled, or fresh from the barrel at the brewery’s own bar. All of Gorgeous Brewery’s beers have a distinct label design and tasting notes. They are made from the finest ingredients and crafted, bottled and labelled by hand. The range includes a selection of thirst quenching, light bodied pale ales, a dark and rich vanilla malt stout and seasonal IPAs.

Seven of the beers including, Glowfly, Greaseball and Goofyhoof are vegan, unfined and unfiltered, and therefore retain a natural haze, as well as offering a more intense flavour.

St Peter's Without Gold 

St Peter's Without Gold is a full-bodied beer with a slightly sweet malt flavour combined with a citrus bitterness, which hopes to quench the thirst of ale and lager drinkers looking to reduce their units and make healthier drinking choices.

Skinner’s Beer

Six of Skinner’s Brewery’s core range of beers have been certified as vegetarian and vegan friendly. Mike Pritchard, commercial director said that “Over the past few months, we’ve worked closely with the VeganSociety to check which of our ales pass their strict guidelines. With the exception of Hops ’n’ Honey and Penny Come Quick, which include honey and milk respectively, all of our ales are vegan and vegetarian.”

Vegetarian and veganism has seen a rise in recent years in the UK due to growing concerns with animal welfare and the effect of the meat industry on the environment. Mike Pritchard said that Skinners chose to seek certification because “we know from talking to our stockists and customers that there is a growing consumer-interest in vegan and vegetarian options in the food and drink category. With 12% of the UK population now identifying as either vegan or vegetarian, it’s important our beers are labelled clearly to help these customers when shopping or buying at the bar”.

During the ale brewing process, finings are added during racking to clarify the beer. Whilst some breweries use isinglass or gelatin as finings, the Skinners brewing process has always used plant-derived finings, meaning that most of their ales are vegetarian and vegan-friendly.
