We're passionate about beer.  In fact we're so passionate we started our own micro-brewery.  A micro-brewery based in Malton, North Yorkshire looking to turn the town into a beacon for craft beer.

We make handcrafted, full-flavoured beers, using the best ingredients and innovative recipes. Beer that makes you sit up and take notice. Beer that makes you want to sing. Beer that makes you happy to be alive.

All great adventures start with a Bad Seed of an idea. Plant Bad Seeds. Go on an adventure. Drink good beer.

Our take on the classic Berliner Weisse.  Tart and citrussy due to a sour mash process. A sharp and refreshing beer that Napoleon's troops called the "Champagne of the North"

Released January 2015 -cask & Keykeg


American Pale Ale. A full on hop explosion, this beer is an all singing, all dancing cheerleader for Team Cascade! The all American hop that started the micro-brewing revolution knocks this beer out of the park.

Small Beer

Our Small Beer delivers the hop punch of a belting IPA, but with an abv of only 2.5%. A true Session IPA, well rounded with notes of citrus and grapefruit.  Small beer. Big flavour.
