Introducing Elizabeth as the head Brewster, she brings a wealth of experience and an enthusiasm for designing good quality ales.  New member to the brewing team is Tom Broad who takes over duties as Assistant Brewer. Old Nicks Tavern host a variety of Elizabeth’s ales, bringing a broad choice for all those ale connoisseurs.   Horncastle Ales hosts regular brewery tours and brew days which allows you to experience the brewing process and  understand how the four core ingredients, water, malt, hops and yeast can be combined to create your favourite ales. Brewery tours and brew days are perfect gifts for friends and family who enjoy a good pint of ale or for groups looking for something fun and a little different.
