Something creative is brewing...
Every brewery needs a solid sessionable ale. Every craft beer fan needs a favourite sessionable ale too. Of Course I Still Love You answers the call on both counts!
The foundation of our core range of beers, this is an easy-drinking brew, with its heart in traditional British Best Bitters.
We have perfected a special blend of no less than five different malt grains to achieve a wonderfully smooth beer with an equally smooth taste profile. East Kent Goldings hops help give the beer an even balance in terms of bitterness without over-powering the grain flavours.
The result is an everyday brew that is winning fans who are new to the craft beer movement, as well as seasoned drinkers who consider themselves to be more established and knowledgeable when it comes to their beers. This was no means by chance. We wanted to create something that was distinct and delicious, but simple enough to achieve a wide appeal that suits all tastes.
Ben says: “Of Course I Still Love You is the craft ale of choice for people who like their beer to be both super smooth and super drinkable. In my opinion, artisan beer doesn’t need to be too fussy for the sake of it; sometimes you simply crave a tasty ale that builds on long-established brewing traditions. The result here is a clean, bitter-neutral ale that has the usual floral notes you might expect, but with some hints of biscuit, bread and toffee, with a delicious caramel finish.
It’s a beer that I would drink when I’m out for an all-day session at the pub as much as when I’m relaxing at home of an evening.”

Of this piece, Nelli says: “It shows two creatures enveloped in the beauty of the universe, taking comfort and joy from each other’s presence. Of Course I Still Love You is a nod to true love; whether that’s between friends, family or lovers.”
