What People are saying about our beer
Very interesting and novel beers with foraged ingredients. These beers would be very hard to find anywhere else and are really pushing the brewing boundaries
Amazing beers, covering a wide range of styles. Very unique, especially with the wild flavours. Many work well with food!
I was astounded by the way you make your beers with unusual ingredients and passion. I look forward to drinking your future varieties!
Woodman’s Wild Ale specialises in the use of foraged seasonal ingredients gathered from the Cornish countryside to give our beers their unique quality. This connection with the seasons and our local landscape makes these special beers a true product of time and place, while also bringing new flavours to the tastebuds of the curious and adventurous.
We have a small, but growing barrel library in which we age many of our beers. Using predominantly red wine barrels, bourbon barrels or new oak we let the beer mature, develop and take on additional flavours and added complexity. Sometimes the ageing period is just a few months, but often our beer rests for a year or more and has foraged ingredients.
We brew both historical and modern styles, taking inspiration from different countries brewing traditions and our surroundings in the beautiful countryside of Cornwall.
