Our Beers

Award-winning craft brewers

We brew by instinct, not by numbers. That’s something you can taste in every Batemans beer. Beer made with four generations of craft know-how and the best ingredients. Beer that pushes the boundaries. Beer with real flavour and character. Beer that brings people together.

Our celebrated Triple XB (XXXB) – a smooth yet distinctively flavoured English tawny beer – was first unveiled in 1978 by our then head brewer, Ken Dixon. It fast became a best-seller and big favourite amongst our drinkers. In 1986, it was voted CAMRA’s Beer of the Year at the Great British Beer Festival; and has been named CAMRA Premium Beer of the Year four times since.

Brewing our way since 1874

Since George and Susannah Bateman opened our independent family brewery in 1874, we’ve been using the best possible ingredients and craft brewing methods to make beers that people love.

Four generations later, and we’re still doing things our own way – and have quite a few more beers to our name.

Our Beers

Batemans beers are the result of four generations of craft brewing know-how and the best quality ingredients. From classic English cask beers to adventurous, fruity craft beers, our award-winning brews are much loved for their original flavour and character.

Black in colour and creamy in mouthfeel, packed full of delectable dark fruits for a rich, nutty spiced beer.

The delicate aroma of biscuit and fruit unleashes a distinctive peppery, fruit flavour, which is followed by earthy hops and a dry maltiness.

The original multigrain beer, hits the mouth with a wonderful quenching flavour full of hops, citrus fruits and biscuit malts.

A distinctive peppery hop and bitter orange aroma is followed by big hops, fruit flavours and lingering hop bitterness. Set sail and enjoy.

Brewed with Arabica coffee, Belgian chocolate and locally-grown roasted barley malt. A coffee & chocolate stout sensation, rich, enticing and well rounded.

Matured in oak, the beer tastes of plums, port, malt, brandy, vanilla and almonds. An ale to be celebrated.
