Pastore Brewing & Blending

Ben and Chris Shepherd are father and son and have been brewing together for years. Postore (pas-tor-ray) is Shepherd in Italian. The English side the Shepherds, and the Italian side hailing from Emilia-Romagna and evoking fond memories of demijohns of homemade lambrusco and car boots full of meat and cheese.

They have a 10BBL brewhouse, warm fermentation and conditioning room, and a cold store.

They produce two core ranges of amazing beer:

- Fresh series - This looks at accessible, fun, modern takes on mix-ferm brewing, utilising Kveik and Lactobacillus co-fermentation in fruited Waterbeach Weisses, Sour IPAs and Pastry Sours.

- Cellar series -  This is built around the mother culture of Brettanomyces and lactic acid bacteria. Blended with different bases to produce an exciting range of aged wild ales, some in stainless steel and some as part of an extensive barrel program and blendery. Many of these beers are blended on fresh fruit in season.

These beers really challenge your perception of beer, as often they are more like a complex and delicate wine. They taste amazing and are a huge favourite of ours.
