We’ve just fulfilled a lifelong ambition to launch our very own brewery. The Yubberton Brewing Company is currently producing Yubby and Yawnie bitter exclusively for The Killingworth Castle and sister pub, The Ebrington Arms. We are also about to launch our all new pale ale, YPA.
Yubby Bitter (3.8% abv)
A copper coloured traditional bitter with strong caramel malty notes carrying through to a fruity hop character with a pleasant bitter finish. The Yubby is the tradional nickname for sister pub, The Ebrington Arms.
Yawnie Bitter (4.4% abv)
A full bodied chestnut coloured ale with a creamy head. Well balanced with toffee malt notes persisting through a complex hop character and a satisfying bitter finish. A Yawnie is an affectionate term for a village idiot.
YPA – Yubby Pale Ale (4% abv)
A refreshing IPA style beer with strong hoppy character, brewed with 100% British ingredients.
We invite our local breweries to supply us with regular guest ales. Below are some of breweries we like…
Cotswold Cider – Cotswold Brewing Co. (5% abv)
Refreshingly different and tastes of the 100% British apples from which it is created.
Cotswold Lager – Cotswold Brewing Co. (4%)
An every day, easy drinking lager which is light and delicate with floral aromas and flavours.
Cotswold Premium – Cotswold Brewing Co. (5%)
A true premium lager. Refreshingly dry with a pleasing hoppiness balanced with a hint of sweetness.

SPIRITS & WHISKY
We love beer and wine but this year we decided to give the same love to our lists of gin, vodka and whisky. We have a dozen whiskies on the list perfected by the landlady’s experts in her native homeland with a nod to small producers not swallowed up by big corporations (where possible!). Our extensive gin list showcases the revival of the British spirit with some amazing English gins! Examples include Bathtub, Williams Chase and Sipsmith.
