Our Story

Many years ago, Charles MacLean developed a passion for two things. By day he loved riding motorcycles and, when the day was done, he enjoyed great beer. So, in 1978 he decided take an epic journey. He traveled overseas to ride a Norton Commando through the beautiful English countryside.

The Cherry Porter is in the House!

Looks like it’s time for some Cherry Porter.
