    We hope everyone has been enjoying the Small Batch Brews from St Austell Brewery. We think they must be having fun making up the names – Raisins to be Cheerful being one of our faves.

    They have been a real mix of seasonal flavours, Christmas ales, pale ales, festival favourites, tastes from the South West and overseas, including Slovenia and Australia.

    1972 celebrated Trade Quality Brewer Mervyn Westaway, who has been with the brewery for nearly 45 years. Fruity red ale Ruby Jack was brewed in honour of C19th World heavyweight boxing champion from Helston, Bob Fitzsimmons, known as Ruby Robert.

    The good news is that the brewery will be releasing small amounts of the Season Three brews prior to the launch of Season Four. So if you had any particular favourites, look out for them when you visit. All available on draught.
