The Purity Law: Water, malt, hops, yeast
Written into an official document the 23rd of April 1516 and still in force today.

But it's not just a law, it ensures we make great beer and your hangovers aren't half as bad.

Book a brewery tour or beer tasting to learn about this fascinating story of the purity law from our in-house beer sommelier.
