Our brewing style was influenced by both the American craft brewing scene and the British ‘real ale’ tradition, and so combining these two influences is at the base of most of our creations.
Our vision is to raise the quality of beer, increase the choice of beer available to beer drinkers, and make good beer much more widely available to buy and drink. This vision underpins why By The Horns Brewing Co. began life.
The first 5 years of business was a time of discovery & learning; and purely applying a new business in a growing ‘craft’ beer market-place. This phase of our business saw organic growth, but more importantly it was about the journey and where we wanted to take By The Horns in the future.
We organically grew the brewery with additional brewing kit being installed to meet demand, & implemented world-class brewing processes & regimes which would allow even better quality and consistency.
At the beginning of 2020 we launched a brand refresh, bringing a consistent progressively traditional attitude to our core range of beers.
In doing so we re-branded the name of our Lager to West End Pils and added Old Smoke to our core range. We added Old Smoke, an English ‘smoke tea’ Bitter, to our core range to offer a beer that was purely English in nature and style but of course with a twist. Our core range now crosses a spectrum of beer styles, with each bringing something new and different to the table.
We also ensure that our seasonal range & one-off specials really look to offer something interesting.
as well as switching to biodegradable labels
