Our Brewery Shop
Frequently asked questions
The brewery shop is open 7 days a week from 10am. Being located in our brewery tap The Fur & Feather Inn means we stay open until around 9pm every day and sometimes later. If you have placed an online order for collection these will be available for collection after midday.
Mini-Casks & Beer Boxes contain live beer and have a best before date. Once opened the life & quality of the beer is affected by how it is stored. We recommend keeping them in a cool, dry place between 11-14 degrees however a household fridge is better than risking it getting too warm.
With a beer box regularly release the excess pressure by opening the tap while the box is upright and releasing any air. Before use turn the box horizontal, with a slight forward tilt and allow it to settle for at least 24 hours before discarding the first small glass and enjoying your Woodforde’s beer! Similarly for a mini-cask vent the can and allow it to settle for at least 8 hours. If stored correctly at the right temperature and reducing the amount air accessing the container a mini-cask can maintain quality for 3-5 days whilst a beer box can achieve 7-10 days.
