Each week the seven-and-a-half hectolitre microbrewery will brew new beers that will be served fresh from the tank.

Head brewer at the Ashton Lane site Digger Robinson has been tasked with developing a range of new and interesting beers.

Special brews

So far, he has created three special brews at the microbrewery, including Ashton Pale Ale (4% ABV), Table Beer (3.5% ABV) and a Marshmallow Milk Stout (4% AB).
