Aside of Our Brewery

The Roebuck Brewery

We celebrated our first anniversary of brewing in July 2018, supplying our craft ales to both the Roebuck Inn at Draycott in the Clay and the Hawk and Buckle, Etwall.

It is very much a family enterprise, backed by a wealth of experience. Three generations are involved in our brewing operation, quite an achievement!

Our thanks to all our customers and to our pub partners for their support and encouragement. We look forward to providing you with a range of excellent ales in the future.

We have just launched our latest ale, Hopzester, a light coloured citrus flavoured ale with a pronounced hop aroma. This complements out existing beers, Roebuck Bitter, Blonde, IPA and Porter.

If you would like to find out more about the Roebuck Brewery or arrange for a visit, please contact Head Brewer Steve Topliss on 07757 503851

(The brewery is situated adjacent to the Roebuck Inn, Draycott in the Clay DE6 5BT).

We are currently serving:

Blonde - 3.7% ABV - Light and refreshing, floral on the nose with a clean, balanced palate.
Bitter - 4.5% ABV - Amber coloured ale with a dry palate and hoppy aftertaste.
Hopzester - 4.2% ABV - Thirst quenching light coloured citrus flavoured ale with a pronounced hop aroma.
Ruby - 4.4% ABV - Ruby-red coloured, full malty flavour with a hint of chocolate and blackcurrant.
Porter - 4.6% ABV - Smooth and balanced dark ale with much of the colour and flavour derived from crystal/chocolate malts and roasted barley.
IPA - 5.2% ABV - Sunset golden India Pale Ale with a full and mellow malty character and fruity citrus hops.

“Party of 12 had Sunday lunch to celebrate my 70th birthday. Warm and friendly welcome, excellent food and service. Made it a day to remember. Lovely waitresses even sang Happy birthday when they brought cake to table. Will definately visit again.”

“Warm welcome and swift service from the bar staff upon arrival. Excellent range of real ales available, brewed at the on site micro brewery. Nicely lit and ambient bar. Very comfortable. The whole pub has been recently renovated and has a really good mix of traditional layout with a contemporary finish. Dining room also very comfortable and welcoming. Every dish was well cooked, wholesome, substantial and properly priced.”

— Mick MJM
“A warm and friendly restaurant, the food has always been excellent and the service is good. We've tried the Tuesday Pizza offer which is great and sampled many things form the menu. Would definitely recommend. Cooked to order and priced well.”
