Brewed within a 17th century farmstead in the lush rolling hills of the Hampshire Downs, Upham Punter is a fine real ale. A small dedicated team at Upham Brewery handcraft their ales, of which there are only three, using age-old brewing methods and only the best natural ingredients. Scrumptiously malty with a rich earthiness and hints of syrup and toasted grain, Punter is a delight for any ale connoisseur.
Giving a nod to Hampshire’s fishing prowess, the Barbus barbus from the small organic Butts Brewery was originally created as a beer to celebrate the opening of the course fishing season, but it has grown to become a firm favourite here at The B.V.I. Butts Brewery only supplies its cask ales within a radius of 60 miles from their brew house, so you’ll be hard pressed to find this award-winning ale any further afield. Deliciously hoppy without being too sweet, Barbus barbus is a well-balanced cask ale that is sure to tickle your taste buds.
