Acorn Brewery

Quite a bit happening down here.

After months of hard work preparing the groundwork, a variety of Acorn Beers finally left Wombwell on Wednesday 10th September bound for Italy. The fashion concious ‘stylistas’ of Northern Italy will for this Autumn’s season be mostly drinking Barnsley brewed Barnsley Bitter, Yorkshire Pride, Old Moor Porter, Barnsley Gold and Gorlovka. Bellisimo!!

After even more hard work the team in S73 are delighted to announce that Old Moor Porter has just been listed regionally within Morrisons stores across the north of England.

New beers:

Waimea (1)

Waimea IPA 5% – Brewed with New Zealand Wiamea hops that impart an intense citrus fruit aroma with subtle pine characteristics


Strongheart 5.1%, a strong version of our very popular Summer Pale, A clear, light straw coloured wheat beer with slight bitterness and a floral aroma.
