Fourth-generation family brewing
Batemans has been brewing quality beer in Wainfleet since 1874. It’s still owned and run by the Bateman family, now in its fourth generation, they use the same traditional craft brewing methods as their legendary great-grandfather, George Bateman did.
Batemans Yella Belly Gold
A golden beer brewed with American Cascade and Chinook hops for a refreshing citrussy flavour and crisp, dry finish.
A classic amber pale ale brewed with Lincolnshire pale and chocolate malts, and a blend of English hops (traditional Goldings and the more floral Challenger). It’s slowly matured for a grainy, quaffable beer. Not your average English bitter.
Batemans Triple XB
A malty multiple winner of CAMRA’s Champion Premium Beer of Britain, Batemans much-loved XXXB is what you’d call an English tawny ale. It’s brewed with four malts and three hop varieties for a deliciously spicy, fruity and biscuity flavour.
