REGULAR SESSION BEER
ITCHEN VALLEY PRIDE OF THE VALLEY
Really solid best bitter with a light sweetness and a caress of bitterness.
SKINNERS BETTY STOGS
Copper-coloured, with a light malty aroma, a floral, even cedar taste, and a sharp tang of bitter grapefruit, this is an ale that has the strength of character to take on tasty dishes like stews, hard cheeses and meat-packed pasties.
In Cornish folklore Betty Stogs was reputedly full-bodied, golden-hearted and just a little fruity. So you can see why we chose to name our award-winning, smooth-drinking amber ale after her. Especially as both Bettys are often to be found at the centre of a good party. Join us in raising a glass to Betty Stogs – truly the Queen of Cornish ales
Nick Beringer has brought new life to his classic Betty design, putting her front and centre as Cornwall’s good-time girl. Nick has been a key partner for Skinner’s since the brewery’s inception.

CRAFT BEER ON TAP
The unique combination of new-world hops and old-world brewing techniques sets Frontier apart from traditional lagers and brings about truly refreshing results. Complex and bright in flavour, Frontier challenges the norm and explores new tastes. For lager drinkers in search of a more intriguing pint, the adventure awaits.
TFrontier pours a bright golden colour and immediately offers up delicious fruit flavours – delivering distinctive notes of citrus, passion fruit and melon. With a sherbet-like tingle on the tongue, this light, spritzy brew refreshes the palate to leave a final, lingering note of biscuit.
Most lagers are brewed for about six days. Frontier is crafted for a full 42 days for a more memorable flavour that leaves other lagers in the dust.
SHIPYARD RYE PALE ALE
Brewed with Rye Crystal malt, the Rye Pale Ale has a spiced, nutty taste balanced with caramel toffee favours. Packed ful of American hops and the Amarillo, Citra, Summit and Cascade combined for an upfront, punchy, orange aromaed beer with a lingering citrus tang.
