Hopical Storm

Modern Pale Ale

We launched our first keg ale in Spring 2020 - Hopical Storm is a 4% ABV aromatic, dry-hopped, modern pale that, while initially launched as a well-liked cask product in Summer 2019, also performed exceptionally well when we trialled it in keg at high-profile festivals and selected pubs.

Citrusy and sessionable, it has a pleasant fruity body topped with flavours of mandarin, mango and passion fruit.

Part of the Taylor Made range

Informed by tradition and crafted with experience

Andrew Leman and his team of four Heriot-Watt-trained brewers have been experimenting, developing and tinkering with different malts, hop varieties and styles of beer in our five-brewer’s-barrels micro-brewery to create our Taylor Made range of craft beers.

Poulter’s Porter, Cook Lane IPA and Hopical Storm are contemporary, full-flavour beers with the timeless and inimitable Taylor’s Taste.

Cook Lane

Most people don’t have to check the shipping forecast before they go for a pint of Landlord.

Most people don’t have to check the shipping forecast before they go for a pint of Landlord.

Whoever said It’s all about the journey not the destination clearly wasn’t going for a pint of Landlord. Ask Ian Johnson from the island of Yell in the Shetland Isles. Every six months or so Mr Johnson sets off on an epic pilgrimage. A 500-mile round trip that includes 12 hours aboard a boat negotiating a particularly rough and inhospitable stretch of the North Sea. His destination? The nearest pub that serves Landlord on draught - The Queen Vic in Aberdeen. Maybe it’s the combination of the finest ingredients and traditional brewing methods that mean some drinkers will go that little bit further for a taste of Taylor’s. Bon voyage to them, as we say in Yorkshire.
