The beer that changed everything. The first brew we perfected, the beer that made our name with its distinctive bitter, clean and refreshingly dry flavour. Made with only the best Maris Otter malt blended with a variety of English hops (a secret that we can never share), Butcombe Original is the classic session beer.

Food Pairing

Butcombe Original is the perfect companion to tender red meat, lending a peppery character to full meat flavours. It’s the best friend of stews and warming winter pies and is always welcome at a summer BBQ.
