Ole Slew Foot Brewery

John Bates established the Ole Slew Foot Brewing Company in July 2008 after buying a 820 litre kit form Glastonbury ales and now produces a range of fine traditional British and European ales.

In October 2008 John attended the 3 week Brewlab Practical Brewing Course. “I wanted to learn more about the commercial side of brewing, yeast counting and bottling. I achieved all of that and more”. John also trialled recipes during the practical brewing sessions that could be produced and distributed once the brewery was operational.

In January 2009 Old Slew Foot brewed its first beer called ‘January 8th’. It was a 4.2% pale ale brewed with Maris Otter Pale Malt from the famous Branthill Farm in North Norfolk. The brewery has gone from strength to strength and providing guest beers to a number of outlets.

Since production began Brewlab has provided ABV analysis for Ole Slew Foot Brewery.
