Small_Beer_-_no1Small Beer No 1

abv: 2.7%

A limited batch, lower strength ale that’s satisfying and full of flavour. This beer lends itself to pub food as well as home cooked dishes. It’s great with sausages, burgers, shepherd’s pie, lasagne and a Ploughman’s is the right direction to maximise the sweet comforting flavours in this beer.

Everards, “We’ve brewed a very special limited batch of our new ale, Small Beer No.1 for January with our friends at the Brunswick Brewery.

Small Beer (also known as small ale or table beer) is an ale that contains a lower amount of alcohol by volume and they typically range between 0.5% – 2.8% ABV. Small Beer‘s have been popular throughout history. Everyone, including children used to drink beer up until the 19th century. Small Beer which was usually less than 1% ABV, was safer to drink than water as the boiling and fermentation processes killed any bugs.

We’ve carefully considered the brewing techniques and ingredients when creating the recipe for our 2.7% ale to ensure that whilst the beer is lower strength it remains a full-bodied ale, full of fruity flavour. We have selected high quality ingredients including Challenger, Cascade and Styrian Goldings hops and combined these with oats to give the ale body and smoothness and Rye which gives a red hue and semi-dry finish. You’ll taste a classic malt and hop flavour with a prominent citrus twist and a fruity aroma which makes a very moreish and satisfying ale.

To achieve a beer that is lower in alcohol, our brewers have used a smaller amount of malt in the brewing process. Sugars are extracted from the malt and are converted into alcohol by yeast, so less malt means that there are less sugars to convert. To ensure that Small Beer No.1 has lots of flavour and body we have adjusted the fermentability of the wort and the type of sugars it contains. This leads to a higher proportion of sugars in the final beer to give a bigger mouthfeel and body without the additional sweetness.”

Strong_Ale_-_1_-_t.976d22a9.fill-500x650Mild No1

abv: 7.0%

Beer aficionados will love our full flavoured Strong Ale No.1 with its deep satisfying flavour.

Full flavoured and brewed at a higher strength, our Strong Ale No.1 is dark in colour with an amber glow. Strong ales are big, bold and satisfying with deep, complex flavours and our beer is no exception. We’ve used English Goldings and Fuggles hops to brew this classic cask ale with a dominant malt and rich alcohol warming flavour.

A premium ale calls for a premium ingredient so we’ve used Maris Otter barley. Once malted, it becomes the ingredient by which loyalist brewers swear. The reason? It’s a reliable and consistent ingredient, giving guaranteed depth of flavour to your beer. In fact, you could say it’s the ‘Rolls Royce’ of brewing barley. The longevity of its use also speaks volumes with Maris Otter seeing over 50 years of production. When you consider that most barley’s are superseded within five or six years you can see why Maris Otter is so special.

A touch of black malt and molasses accentuate the sweet malts giving our beer a rich, warming and sweet flavour, so sit back relax and unwind with our Strong Ale No.1.

First impressions can last a life time and our farms maverick hound UBU certainly made his mark when Purity built their new brewhouse; by running across the freshly poured courtyard concrete. Those paw prints are here to this day. UBU’s notoriety as a bit of a nuisance carried from day to day with ‘tails’ of obstructing the dray, sleeping in the brewery and growling at guests. No one could really get angry at UBU though as with all the exasperating exploits came a faithful friend, brim-full of real character. Pure UBU Amber Ale is a brilliant beer, dedicated to those who dare to be different and stand out from the crowd.


Pure UBU is a distinctive, full flavoured beer with a sweeter finish and dark fruit notes. Brewed with English Maris Otter, Crystal, Black and Wheat malts, with Pilgrim and Cascade hops with an IBU 36.


Pairs perfectly with red meats, game or mature cheddar.

Core-Brand-Celli-Lens_BEST-BITTERTheakston Best Bitter

abv: 3.8

Theakston Best Bitter is the leading session ale within the Theakston portfolio and has been for time immemorial. It is quite possible that when Robert Theakston founded the brewery in 1827 the range of ales would have been limited to just two or three of which almost certainly, one would have been a bitter beer. Consequently it would be reasonable to argue that Theakston Best Bitter is one of the longest established session ales in Yorkshire.

When we refer to a ‘bitter’ beer, the term does not mean sour as in lemons, but dry as in ‘dry white wine’. So Best Bitter is a full bodied, dry beer.

We use five different hop varieties to make our Best Bitter forming a complex but subtle taste profile. The combination of dryness as generated through the use of Target and Challenger hops, is balanced by sweetness created by the generous use of prime malting Barley providing the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of food flavours as found in a Ploughman’s lunch for instance.
