Our Beers & Wines

Thwaites has a brewing history that spans more than 200 years, and produces beers exclusively for our pubs, inns and hotels, so every pint is something rather special.

Combining craftsmanship with years of experience.  Always delicious. Enjoy a pint or two at the Golden Lion. Cheers!

Our Beers

Brewed for you

When you relax with a drink at The Golden Lion, you’ll discover a well-stocked bar serving the finest Thwaites cask ales.

Daniel Thwaites uses only the finest dark kiln roasted malts, English barley and select fuggles and goldings hops to create this bittersweet dark mild with a deliciously dry finish.

Our award-winning team of five brewers – Brian, Harry, Glyn, Stuart and Mark – have over 125 years of expertise between them and each week they mash hops, barley and brewing liquor to create beers which we’re delighted still carry our forefather’s name.

Our seasonal ales give the team the opportunity to have some fun with flavour combinations, and our guests the chance to savour some beers which are truly unique to us.

December Cask Ales

Yule Love It, Premium Bitter 4.0%
This is a light Amber Ale with a malty aroma. It has a refreshing hint of sharpness with a balanced hop finish. Yule love it!

Good Elf, Spiced Ale 4.9%
Sweet ale full of festive flavours of clove, orange, ginger and cinnamon, reminiscent of a good old Christmas pudding!

Twelve Bells, IPA 3.6%
Twelve bells are ringing for this five hop IPA full of tropical fruits and citrus orange flavours. Hoppy new year!

Our Wines

For a tipple

We’ve taken great care to make sure our wine list is a crowd pleaser with wide range of choice. Not just the usual crisp whites but some slightly more adventurous options too, sourced from smaller suppliers who pour their heart and soul into every bottle they produce.
