Pillbox 4.0%

Pillbox is our biggest selling beer. A very pale quaffable session ale. Easy to drink with a hoppy flavour without being too complex and just the right amount of bitterness. Great to drink all year round but particularly refreshing in the summer. Our ‘lager conversion’ ale, popular with the ladies too!

Pillbox is currently available in the following format.

9 Gallon Cask (Firkin)

4.5 Gallon Cask (Pin)

500ml Bottles (Gluten Free)



Military Pillboxes were defences built along the Kennet & Avon canal during 1940-41 from Semington to Theale. This stretch was known as GHQ Stop Line Blue and was set up against the anticipated German tank invasion after the defeat in Dunkirk. Most of these still exist today in various conditions, some can be found alongside the towpath. See more info here
