Birchover Blue Cheese -
Our rich, creamy blue cheese is now available to buy from the bar priced at £2.50 per 100g (minimum order 120/150g).
We are currently raising money in conjunction with The Community Heartbeat Trust in order to maintain a defibrillator in the heart of Birchover. We need to raise funds to re-stock the equipment and buy a new battery after it was deployed this summer. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so in person at the red lion Birchover, or visit our charity checkout at:
Birchover Brewery is now fully functional!
Matteo is currently producing our wonderful 'Bircher Best' on a regular basis on site. Bircher Best (3.9% abv) is a traditional amber ale produced using 100% British malt and hops and can only currently be purchased from The Red Lion Birchover.
In addition to Bircher Best, we brew Cork Stone (4.5%), Nine Ladies (4.2%), Robin Hood's Stride IPA (5%), Kingstone white stout (5.8%) & Zira - doubled hopped American IPA (5.5%).
For Matteo's final year at university, he has completed a dissertation on the subject of women and real ale/artisan beers. We would like to offer our thanks to those women who completed our questionnaire regarding why women generally prefer not to drink real ale.
A copy of the final study is available for customers to read at the Red Lion on request.
