In 2019 Langton celebrates 20 years as a brewery, having started at the back of the Bell Inn in East Langton, where beer was brewed for the pub and the local cricket team. However, demand for the beers grew and in 2005 Langton moved to its current home in the idyllic surroundings of Grange farm at Thorpe Langton. The popularity of Langton’s beers continues to grow and they are available in local outlets, pubs, restaurants, hotels and farm shops. There are also plans for a tap room in 2020, where drinkers can study beers such as Inclined Plane, Bullseye Stout and Jabber West Coast IPA in close proximity to where they are made. The brewery also believes in supporting the local community by raising money through events for local charities and sporting clubs and inviting people to visit the brewery throughout the year.
‘We are a small independent business - no one else influences the beers we brew. We only craft beers we want to brew and like to drink. To us, producing craft beer is about having a direct influence and control over all the ingredients throughout our brewery process. We have minimal automation — each day our brewers handle, smell and taste our raw ingredients. Staying true to our roots, we are on an exciting journey.’
Inclined Plane, 4.2%
A refreshing amber-coloured bitter with a light floral finish, while the late addition of the Amarillo hop instils a distinct citrus flavour. First brewed in 2004, this is a multi-award winning beer and named after the canal boat lift operating in the 1900s at the Foxton Locks in Leicestershire.
