Solstice

Light golden ale with a mild spicy hop character with a hint of fruit.
Maris Otter malt with some wheat and light crystal malt for head retention and body. Lager hops with a smattering of modern American and New Zealand varieties work well together to give a refreshing, lightly bitter drink.
Dry finish and well balanced.

White Monk

This beer is pale golden in colour, with a full flavour, yet smooth and easy-drinking character, with a full, floral aroma and a powerful attack of hops (Cascade & Willamette) on the palate, giving way to a lingering hop finish.

A real favourite of ours.

Rob

Rob

High overlord and master of the cheese Rob guides the Hillary Step with a deft hand and a tazer.

Some say he actually climbed the big E, found God – the Great Whey – and felt such visceral desire to sell beer and cheese in the same room it made him whoop with glee. Some say this didn’t happen. Others say nothing… Did this paramount experience inspire the choice of name for his urban boozer? It will always be a mystery – oooo.
