Pale is the New Gold!

Bradfield Brewery’s Farmers Pale Ale has struck gold in Rotherham CAMRA’s Beer of Yorkshire Awards 2024. The competition kick starts this year’s Rotherham Real Ale and Music Festival at Magna.

Scooping up the Gold Award in the Premium Blonde, Pale & Golden Beer Category, Farmers Pale Ale is one of the ales that started the Bradfield Brewery story 19 years ago and continues to be a best seller for the brewery. 

And the winning didn’t stop there, Bradfield’s popular Farmer’s Steel Cow was awarded Bronze in the Premium Bitter Category. Farmers Steel Cow came along a bit later on for the Brewery, first brewed in 2011 as a festival ale.

Farmer’s Pale Ale is a 5.0%abv distinctive fruity pale ale balanced with a floral bouquet, full bodied with a predominantly dry aftertaste.

Famer’s Steel Cow is a 4.5% abv light coloured fruity full bodied beer, with a burst of citrus and summer fruit aromas, creating a refreshing ale with a sharp dry aftertaste.

Farmers Blonde & Farmers Brown Cow Bottles go Gluten Free!

We are pleased to announce that we have mastered the challenge of bringing Gluten Free versions of our much loved ales to the market!

Farmers Blonde Bottles and Farmers Brown Cow bottles have now been confirmed as Gluten Free Ales.

Industry approved testing has concluded that these bottled beers contain less than 10 parts per million of gluten. 

These are now available to purchase from our Brewery Shop as single bottles, 3 piece gift pack or in cases of 12x500ml.

It is worth a note that these beers have not been produced in a 100% Gluten Free environment, therefore if you have any condition that means you can’t  ‘consume’ or ‘be exposed to’ any gluten at all (rather than the standard ‘below 20ppm’), they may not be suitable for you.

Brewery Tap to Undergo Refurbishment

Bradfield Brewery owned Wharncliffe Arms at Wharncliffe Side is set to temporarily close for renovation.

The pub is having a major makeover and due to the intensity of works involved, the pub will be closed for the duration of the renovations.

Plans for alterations to the pub were approved in November 2022 and work is set to start at the end of May. The Pub will be therefore closed from the 22nd May 2023, until further notice.

The plans will see the seating area of the pub extended, a commercial kitchen installed and the relocation of the bar area. Whilst giving the pub the much needed facelift it requires, once complete, the plans are to keep the pub operating as a traditional village pub which offers a warm and friendly welcome to both the local community as well as visitors to the area. Changes will be of a contemporary nature to modernise the venue whilst maintaining it’s traditional pub like setting at the same time.

Progress updates will be provided along the way so don’t go away!

A Brew that’s Fit for a King

To commemorate the King’s Coronation, and all things commonwealth, we’ve adapted the Jubilee Ale recipe to create a Coronation Pale Ale.

Farmers Coronation Pale Ale has been brewed using British Malts and Hops from across the Commonwealth to produce a Pale Ale fit for royalty!

Nelson Sauvin Hops from New Zealand partnered with Archer Hops from the UK offer up their stoned fruit flavours which are complimented with a sharp but juicy finish. 5.2% ABV.
