Based in Castleford Fawcett’s have been producing traditional floor malted barley for over 200 years. Traditional Maris Otter pale ale malt is the mainstay of most of our recipes.

This is supplemented to varying degrees with a variety of speciality malts to enhance the flavour and colour characteristics of each brew. The hops are supplied by Charles Faram and Simply Hops. We use both leaf and pelleted hops from the UK, Europe, America and the New World. A careful blend is used to create the distinctive aroma and taste profiles of each recipe.
