Our brewing process

FARM ASSURED BARLEY

Farm assured 'Red Tractor' English barley. In malting the barley, we access the starch needed for brewing, and this influences the final beer in body, strength and flavour.

NATURAL MINERAL WATER

Makes up 95% of the pint. We have our own natural mineral water well, resulting in water so pure it could be bottled and sold, but so good we save it for our beer.

HAND SELECTED HOPS

All hops are hand selected by one of our master brewers. Vital to the flavour, bitterness and aroma of any cask beer, and acts as a natural preservative.

UNIQUE CULTURE

Helps to create an array of flavours and gives the beer its natural carbonation during fermentation. Only unique yeast cultures are used to produce our cask beer flavours.

Meet Chris our Head Brewer

We thought we would ask Chris a few questions

How did you first get started in brewing? I'd just finished a degree in microbiology and went to my local pub, which had just reopened as a firkin microbrewery. To cut a long story short, they gave me a job!

Do you have a favourite ingredient to work with right now? I'm experimenting with a new brew using aromatic New Zealand hops.

What's your favourite style to brew and drink? At the moment I would say it is blood orange blanche or raspberry wheat.

What's your favourite part of working at the Eagle Brewery? It's great to be part of a team producing our amazing portfolio of beers. The absolute best bit is probably tasting a new beer that we've worked on and seeing it on the bar or supermarket shelf.

If you could sit down with anyone (living or dead) and have a beer, who would it be and why? Louis Pasteur, because he was the grandfather of brewing science.

What could the next Bombardier beer be to compliment the existing range? A lager perhaps, or a bold IPA?
