Hopical Storm

Modern Pale Ale

Hopical Storm is our first ever permanently available kegged ale. A 4% ABV aromatic, dry-hopped, modern pale ale.

Brewed using whole leaf hops grown entirely in the UK, with three stages of hopping to give depth of flavour and an aromatic nose.

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

A swift half at lunch is of the utmost importance at Taylor’s.

A swift half at lunch is of the utmost importance at Taylor’s.

It’s the most important meeting at the brewery. On the stroke of midday, every day, our team of highly experienced brewers stop whatever they’re doing and wind their way down to a small room in the depths of the main brewery building. In this unassuming place they undertake the most vital of tasks – the tasting of beer. Every single batch is tasted at least three times during the brewing process to check the beer is perfectly balanced, and ensure it conditions to produce the depth of flavour that you expect from Landlord. We think it’s a lunchtime tradition well worth preserving.
