Hook Norton Brewery releases popular seasonal ale

Despite the terrible weather that characterises the British summer, beer drinkers will soon be able to enjoy a little sunshine, as Cotswold Hills based brewery, Hook Norton, releases its popular seasonal ale, Haymaker, on draught.

Available throughout July and August, Haymaker has been described as sunshine dancing on the tongue.  With a strong, pale and distinctive taste, and brewed with Goldings hops, it really offers ale drinkers something extra.

Like all Hook Norton real ales, Haymaker is made from the four natural ingredients of malted barley, hops, yeast and water, which are skilfully combined to produce something truly special.

Managing Director (Commercial), Adrian Staley comments: “We take great pride in all of our ales at Hook Norton Brewery, and Haymaker is one of our most distinctive.  It proves to be particularly popular every year and I’m sure this year will be no different.”


Fans of the distinctive brew can purchase bottled Haymaker all year round, either online at, or at the Brewery Visitor Centre.
