The brewery has a 90 litre kettle, each brew producing 75 litres (150 x 50 cl plastic bottles) of un-fined and un-filtered liquid. Under the brewery, in the cellar, are four fermentation vessels and storage/conditioning space.  Brews have been many, and varied. The aim is to produce a variety of styles: recent examples include: Solstice IPA (5.6%), Saison (7.3%) and a Brown Ale (5%), which, on our sampling exhibited interesting smoked notes. Other brews have included Sheffield Nevada (x5.6%), based on the classic American classic, Sierra Nevada and Achzig Deutsche Mark Bitte (5%), an 80 /- style beer.

Bottles are available at events held the small in-house bar and occasionally at outside events. They will also be available at the forthcoming Tramlines Folk Forest.

The Regather Works ( www.regather.net ) are at 57/59 Club Garden Road, S11 8BU. Regather is a co-operatively run organisation which aims to give people the opportunity to create a mutual local economy.
