Finchampstead is set to welcome a second brewery following hot on the heals of the award winning Siren Craft Brew with the news that Elusive Brewing is due to open across the road on Marino Way near Hogwood Park.

The new brewery will be a five barrel plant and there is a very decent write up on the South East Berks CAMRA website here.

The full line up of three ales, which we’ve pinched from the aforementioned SE Berks site – are as follows:

Cherrywood Road (Smoked Mild)
A ruby mild with a subtle fruity smokiness provided by malts that have been smoked over cherrywood. 3.8% ABV.

D&V (English Pale Ale)
A golden ale with a hint of apricot in the finish. 5% ABV.

Level Up (American Red Ale)
A hop forward red ale using six different malts and a combination of Mosaic and Equinox hops. 5.8% ABV.
