Wild hop beers


The ‘Sussex Hop’ used in our Wild Hop beer named the overall winner at The British Hop Awards 2015.


‘Sussex Hop’, from A H Hoad and Son, was found growing wild in 2005 in Gate Court, in Northiam, East Sussex by Peter Cyster, whose family has been growing hops since 1900.  He thought the hop showed promise, and so cultivated and propagated it.


Sussex born and bred, Sussex Wild Hop was inspired by the discovery of a previously unknown hop, growing wild in East Sussex.  It is supplemented with Cascade hops grown in the UK. Best served slightly chilled.


Wild Hop is available throughout the year in our Brewery Shop in 500ml bottles.
Olympia 500ml
Wild Hop 500ml
Star of Eastbourne 500ml

Food Pairing

Wild Hop Blonde with Seafood Linguine

This great example of what English ale brewers do best: packing in the flavour at a relatively low alcoholic strength. Dry and refreshing, with a hop-forward character that punches above its weight without overbalancing or distorting the beer.

Those hops provide a subtle hint of lemon to complement the dryness, making this a perfect beer to pair with fish or seafood dishes as well as a great foil for anything creamy. It’s amazing with seafood linguine, or if you’re fish-free, a soft, creamy cheese such as feta in a Greek salad.
