About Us

Our Story

"Leatherbritches" takes its name from an old tradition. Long before the days of scientific analysis and the invention of the saccrometer, Ale Conners, who collected taxes for the Crown, needed to check the strength of the beers brewed. They would pour some of the beer onto a barrel top, sit on it for a while, and, depending on how sticky they felt it to be when they stood up, they were able to assess it's alcoholic strength and impose the appropriate duty. Worsted, cord and even moleskin trousers failed to withstand this onerous duty. Thus leather britches were worn by all the Ale Conners and they became the mark of their profession.

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy

Our Values

These premium quality beers are brewed using traditional brewing methods using only the finest ingredients. 

Prime barley malt and hops from English gardens, a proven strain of yeast and a local water source are brought together by the skill of the brewer to give that bespoke flavour that is unique to all Leatherbritches beers.

 

Our mission

Over the last few years sales of our bottled beers have grown dramatically. 

Our bottle conditioned beers which, are bottled by hand at the brewery, are now being exported and enjoyed worldwide. We are currently ageing a selection of strong beers in 54 gallon whiskey casks which will be ready to be bottled and savoured late spring, early summer.
