8th December

Today is my birthday, and I always choose a beer that I absolutely adore for today in the Advent Calendar!

Not only are the beers from this brewery consistently brilliant, but Phil is also one of the soundest people you’ll ever meet!

Crafty Bear Colour Change

  • ABV: 5.4%
  • Style: Juicy Pale Ale

Crafty Bear was opened in January 2018 by Director and head brewer Philip Keatley. With a background in hospitality and over 18 years experience, Phil felt the move to open up Crafty Bear was a no-brainer especially as he had been home brewing for 6 years previously.
