The Ship Inn has been brewing since January of 1995. Each week we brew fine ales based on styles from the British Isles and beyond in our brick-and-wood clad Peter Austin brewing system. All of our ales made with Ringwood yeast, are unfiltered, and served off of their sediment so as to ensure conditioning of flavor. Cask-style ales such as our flagship Best Bitter are served  at cellar temperature from the beer engine with natural carbonation.  Our other ales are served slightly cooler with additional carbonation or nitrogen mix for the American palate.
