Where would we be without you? Our local community gave us the best start ever and have been behind us all the way. From trialling our beers in the back garden to launch day a few months later in the Cirencester Farmers’ Market, where we still trade today. Here we have built up a loyal customer base and a firm local presence.

Launch day in November 2012, complete with two Roman Centurions!

We love our trade customers too whose outlets, whether they be a pub, beer festival, bar, café, restaurant or shop, offer their own unique experience and help us reach the wider community.

Over the years we have made some great links and creative relationships with local businesses, groups and individuals, including the Campaign for Real Ale, New Brewery Arts, Corinium Museum, National Trust Chedworth Roman Villa, Cotswold Archaeology, the Phoenix Festival, Decimal, Capreolus DistilleryLoCo, Auntie Caroline's Pickled Onions & Chutneys, Brewerism Brewery ToursStephen Shepherd Photography and many others...

A special mention must go to the Phoenix Festival. This annual volunteer community-led free music event gives us the amazing opportunity to run our own real ale micro bar alongside the fabulous Andy Brown & his team.
