Hop & Stagger beers brewed on the Apley Estate

Apley Gamekeeper Gold Apley Gardeners IPA Apley Harvest Porter Apley Woodman's Bitter Swirl with Text and Pantone RefHop & Stagger beers brewed on the Apley Estate (just across the fields from Apley Farm Shop) include this range of four, especially brewed for us.

Bob Hayes just updated me: “We are currently re designing our web site which should be live by the end of the month. We spent the day at Parliament on 23 March as part of A Taste of Shropshire day. The day was a huge success with many members of Parliament complimenting us on the taste & quality of the beers. We are now hopeful of seeing one of our beers on the bar in Parliament in the coming months. We are also now exploring the potential for exporting our bottled beer range but it’s early days.”

Hop & Stagger beers are handmade by a small family team of Sam & Bob Hayes & Bob’s brother. A local person will join the team next week, to help out. They began brewing in 2012 initially just to meet the demand in their own pub, The White Lion, in Bridgnorth, Shropshire.  The demand grew, so they needed to take on the converted barn at Astol Farm, just across the fields from Apley Farm Shop. Beer making has been Bob’s lifelong passion, so it was bound to happen one day ! Their beers are made from just 4 ingredients – yeast, grain (barley, wheat), hops & water – which are all sourced from as locally as possible. The variety of grains & the variety of hops (as in wine making) changes the style of beer which is produced. They’ve been in the CAMRA good beer guide for the last 7 years.
