Q
What Is Natural Beer?
AOur unfined ‘natural’ beers do not contain isinglass cask finings.  They are designed to be served with a haze. We supply as much of our beer unfined and naturally hazy as possible as we believe it is the best for the beer and for you.

Q
What are cask finings?
AThey are an acidified aqueous suspension of collagen derived from the swim bladder of certain fish, along with sodium metabisulphite.  Does it sound like something you want added to your beer?  The finings flocculate the live yeast in the beer into a jelly-like mass, which settles to the bottom of the cask.  Finings have a positive charge which attracts negatively charged particles, mostly yeast, causing them to clump together and fall to the bottom of the cask.

Q
Is cloudy beer bad?
AIn the latter half of the 20th century real ale went into decline and people were often served beer that had stood in cellars too long, not been looked after properly and had gone off. British beer drinkers began to associate cloudy beer with bad beer, when in actual fact the cloudiness was the symptom rather than the cause.  As all other countries abandoned cask for keg and bottle, the linkage was never made between cloudy beer and bad beer.  In other countries cloudiness is actually a mark of quality.
