We pride ourselves on our selection of award-winning beer which you can enjoy in our historic Inn in Cheriton, Hampshire or buy online. For many years now we have brewed our regulars, Goodens Gold, Pots Bitter and Perridge Pale and then roughly every month we brew one of our popular seasonal beers which span the spectrum of traditional beer.

Our Regulars

Pots Bitter

BITTER

ALC 3.8% VOL

Our eponymous Flower “Pots Bitter” is a blend of some of Hampshire’s finest malted barley with a selection of Challenger, Goldings and Northdown hops.  With a balanced bitterness from the English hops paired with a subtle sweetness from the malts, the award-winning Pots Bitter is a traditional British beer and is named after the Flower Pots farm where beer was first brewed in the 1830s.

Goodens Gold

GOLDEN ALE

ALC 4.8% VOL

Goodens Gold is a unique blend of some of Hampshire’s finest low colour and lightly caramelised malted barley with a selection of British and North American hops. Known as a classic “Golden Ale” with a good level of bitterness and flavour to balance the gravity, the multi-award winning Goodens Gold is named after Godwins who farmed the Flower Pots land in the early 19th Century and who famously produced the first Flower Pot pint of ale.

Perridge Pale

PALE ALE

ALC 3.6% VOL

Named after the adjoining field to our Inn and Brewery, our Perridge Pale is a blend of some of Hampshire’s finest low colour malted barley with a gentle wheat malt, paired with six hop varieties from Britain and North America. Light straw in colour, the award winning Perridge Pale is refreshing yet intriguing with a perfect clean finish.

Our Seasonal Beers

Four Candles

SESSION PALE ALE

ALC 3.5% VOL

A festive friend, Four Candles is a seasonal “special” packed full of Goldings and Amarillo hops with English malted barley combined with lightly caramelised amber and red malts. Dry and refreshing with suggestions of orange peel. Burnished gold in colour, Four Candles is a true session hoppy ale and contrary to popular belief, celebrates the Four Candles of Advent, not the famous Two Ronnies sketch of the same name.

Flower Pots IPA

IPA

ALC 6.0% VOL

Brewed in limited batches, our traditional 6% IPA, is full of Pilgrim, Progress and East Kent Goldings hops producing an earthy, medium bodied ale with a smooth bitterness. The English hops are blended with some of Hampshire’s finest malted barley and with hints of citrus, spice and pine, our popular winter regular, has a deep yet warming golden hue.

Pastures Old

Winter Ale

ALC 5.8% VOL

Brewed for the Christmas season, our Pastures Old is an Old Ale in the truest sense. Rich, dark and luxurious, this full bodied winter ale is earthy and spiced, with hints of plum, date and big intense fruits. Just like a Christmas Pudding, but better! Brewed with Brewers Gold hops and a complex grain of deep coloured malts. Named after The Pastures in our historic village of Cheriton, Hampshire.

Buster’s Best

BEST BITTER

ALC 4.2% VOL

Buster’s Best was awarded the Silver medal at The Winchester Beer Festival in March 2020.  Some of Hampshire’s finest malted barley and a touch of wheat is combined with Fuggles and First Gold hops to produce a traditional well rounded English beer.  Bronze in colour with a smooth bitterness, Buster’s is an easy drinking Best Bitter and is named in great fondness after “Buster” the black and white fox terrier who resided behind the bar at our Flower Pots Inn.

Cheriton Porter

CLASSIC PORTER

ALC 4.2% VOL

Brewed over many years as a seasonal beer, we have now added our award-winning Cheriton Porter to our regular bottled beer list as it is so popular with our customers. A complex grain bill of dark malts and traditional British hops create an easy drinking classic Porter.  With a creamy coffee aroma and roasted chocolate maltiness, a hint of sweetness shines through to provide a dry finish.  All of our beers are brewed in the Hampshire village of Cheriton, so why not name a beer after it?

Hopton Pale

PALE ALE

ALC 4.3% VOL

With a big aroma and a brilliant deep golden colour, our spring favourite Hopton Pale is a modern style session pale ale, full of fruity British and North American hops with a lingering bitter and spicy finish. Hopton is brewed every March to commemorate the famous Battle of Cheriton of 1644, where Waller’s Parliamentarian army helped change the course of the English Civil War by forcing Hopton’s Royalist troops to retreat.
