Beers from Crossed Anchors at the 2019 YBF

In 2015, multi awarding-winning brewer and publican duo Paddy O’Riordan and Olly Bainbridge joined forces to launch a brand new brewery in Exmouth. With the beer initially produced through “cuckoo” brewing (using spare capacity in an existing brewery), this was the first step towards opening a part-crowdfunded 6 barrel brewery in The Grapevine’s old stables in Exmouth town centre in 2016.

5 Malt Session

ABV 3.8% Porter/Stout/Mild

A Malty session beer with a nutty clean finish. All
the flavour you expect for this beer style, although not as dark as some milds.

Barrel Sponsor - Blackmores Machinery Haulage Ltd

Three Cs Gold

ABV 4.3% Golden Ale

Bittered with Chinook and Columbus hops then massively dry-hopped with Cascade. Pale golden in colour from the Pale and Vienna malts an easy drinking, well balanced and full of flavour bitter.

Le Douff Super Pale

ABV 4.7% Premium Bitter

Super light pale ale with mega dry hopping. Light mouth feel and gentle finish. But those hops, man oh man, those hops!
