FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Take a look at some of our frequently asked questions, if you are unable to find what you’re looking for please give us a buzz!

Bright beer is beer that has been filtered to remove the sediment. This means that it is ready to drink and does not need to settle. It will need to be consumed within 3-5 days from the day of collection.

Cask-conditioned beer, which still has the sediment, needs to be settled in a cool place for 1-2 days prior to drinking, and should not be moved once settled. If this does not suit your needs… we recommend bright beer! Bright beer does not need to be settled, and can be moved as much as needed – ideal if you’re travelling or have a last-minute party!

The question that has caused many debates in pubs across the Midlands for the last 26 years… Our logo is in fact a honey bee! Whilst they are often mistaken for wasps, honey bees are much less aggressive and produce honey…which we wouldn’t be here without!
