We'll leave our new Director of Brewing, Stuart Howe, to tell you more:
'We need to recruit Bristol and North Somerset's best palates to form an elite team of expert beer tasters that we are calling the Butcombe Flavour Panel. The panel will undertake a scientifically-controlled tasting of the week's production, carried out on Friday afternoon at 2pm. We are not necessarily looking for big beer drinkers, just people who have exceptionally sensitive noses and palates, an interest in flavour and the capability to describe what they perceive.

Boasting one of the best Pub locations in Bristol, on the historic harbour at Baltic Wharf. The original bulding dates back to 1868 and was used by merchants for storing Baltic timber for the growing number of businesses in the Dock in that period. When the Docks closed in 1975 the building went into decline and then became the home for the Harbour Master's Office. In 1983 it was refurbished and became ''The Cottage''.
