Welcome to the Fyne Ales blog—here you’ll find the latest insight into what’s going on with the Fyne Ales team in the brewery, on the farm or on the road.

Origins Brewing – Spring 2018 Collection Launch

Fyne Ales is delighted to invite you to the launch of the Origins Brewing Spring 2018 Collection on Saturday 21 April at the Fyne Ales Brewery Tap & Shop.


The launch will be marked with a one-day celebration of bold, adventurous brewing, with exclusive first pours of the three new Origins Brewing beers alongside rare beers from the Fyne Ales cellar and beers from our friends from around the UK and special guest bottles from Europe.

We’ve invited three UK breweries who specialise in experimental brewing with a sense of provenance to join us for the day, bringing with them special beers from their collections. Each brewer will offer a short talk on their beer and brewing processes with a Q&A following.

The breweries announced for the Spring 2018 Collection launch are (regularly updated):


Little Earth Project

Joining us from picturesque Suffolk, the remarkable Little Earth Project specialises in brewing historic, farmhouse & wild beers using wild and organically farmed ingredients from the local landscape. We’re very excited to have Little Earth Project’s Tom Norton on-site to introduce his daring, complex beers.


The Wild Beer Co

Longtime friends of Fyne Ales, The Wild Beer Co have been championing multiculture fermentation, unorthodox adjuncts and flavour-forward brewing in the UK since 2012. Their love of experimental brewing – using modern creative techniques and ingredients to brew diverse and historic beer styles – has created a range of exciting beers that, like we have set out to achieve in Origins Brewing, showcase a sense of place in every drop.


Dead End Brew Machine

Dead End Brew Machine is the brewing pseudonym of Chris Lewis, Glasgow-based gypsy brewer and yeast-wrangler. For over two years, Chris cultured his own strain of Brettanomyces, refining it using small-scale brews to develop a unique flavour profile for use in Dead End beers. Chris will be joining us to showcase his brett-forward beers and to talk about how to approach multiculture fermentation on a small scale.


Tommie Sjef Wild Ales (Guest Bottles)

Tommie Sjef is a fermentation and blending prodigy. Hailing from the Netherlands, Tommie produces small batch, barrel-fermented beers with strong wild yeast characters. Often augemented with fruit or other adjuncts, his limited-release beers are highly sought after and we’re excited to have some for the Spring 2018 Collection launch.

Alongside the exclusive beer and talks, we’ll also be offering food and music to keep the good vibes going until midnight (license pending).

Tickets are on sale now for £10 (+fees) which includes admission to the event, and Origins Brewing tasting glass and access to all the beers being poured and brewery tours lead by one of our team!

We’re also offering overnight camping at the festival for ticket holders (included in ticket price).

Join us for an amazing afternoon and evening of exciting beers!
