Moor Beer Co.

Are Moor Beer Co. one of Britain's best-kept beer secrets? For a brewery that has been in business for over 15 years, and racked up numerous awards and accolades from all areas of the beer drinking public, from CAMRA to Ratebeer.com, they certainly seem to have kept a low(ish) profile.

Under the current stewardship of Justin and Maryann Hawke, Moor produce classic English ales with a twist. As they say on their website, their beers fuse "the wonders of real ale with the aggressively flavoured beers of [Justin's] native California".

With a nod to the double IPAs of the West Coast, their most celebrated and decorated beer is JJJ IPA. However, as a protest against the introduction of Higher Strength Beer Duty in October 2011, Moor Beer Co. have withdrawn this beer from sale in the UK. You can read about their frustration with the tax here, and sign the e-petition to have HSBD reviewed here. So if you agree to lobby the legislators, we'll gently lobby Moor for a limited release of this stunning beer. Until that day, you'll have to console yourself with some of their other excellent offerings.
