We know it’s difficult to know what a beer will taste like from its name alone, or how it looks on the pump clip in your local. Our friends at Cyclops Beer have tasted and ‘Cyclopsed’ around 2,500 beers so that you can find out quickly and easily what a Great Oakley Beer will look, smell and taste like. This will help you to discover what you like and what you don’t, so that choosing one from our range becomes easy.

We will be looking into your Ales and see where the nearest place we can buy or drink from!! Thanking you. Cath & Daz”

  • Tiffield Thunderbolt – Best pint ever

    “I’ve just tasted Tiffield Thunderbolt in the Raven in Bath for the first time and couldn’t believe how lovely it was. The owner agreed it was but sadly he’s about to run out. If the West Country has run out could I have a crate delivered at home?
    Best pint Ever well done!
    Please put me on your mailing list!!!”

  • A ‘keen fan’ of Great Oakley Brewery

    “Hello Phil & Hazel. I guess I am one of that ever-growing band of beer nerds. I drink, I score, I list. I’ve had over 2000 different real ales in the last 6 years (when i started listing again) and I would like to tell you how much I have enjoyed your beers (I’ve had 6 of yours), especially Gobble, Wagtail and Wot’s Occurring. Once I’ve had more than 5 different beers I ‘average’ the scores of the beers I’ve had to work out and rank the various breweries. Of 141 breweries Great Oakley lies 2nd=, which is a fantastic result. Please keep up the good work as I’m a keen fan of it.”
