Single Hop Pale Ale | 4.0%

A nod to the glam rock & glitterball era, Watneys Starlight Single Hop Pale Ale is a citrussy, tropical disco worthy pale ale. Featuring the Amarillo hop, Starlight is a gluggable, refreshing pale ale with notes of orange and grapefruit and a dry, bitter finish.

Party 7

Extra Pale Ale | 3.5%ABV

In the 60s and 70s no party was complete without the legendary Party 7 Can – well now it’s back! This light and refreshing extra pale ale is easy to drink, with tropical fruit aromas and a satisfying hoppy bitterness.

Let’s get the party started!

Young Harvey

Session IPA | 4%ABV

Young Harvey inherited the Combe Brewery and the Cobham Park Estate in 1828, and was the last Combe to have direct control of Combe Delafield and Co & its brewery on Long Acre in Covent Garden. This later merged with the Watneys Brewery and became Watney Combe & Reid.

This country gent was such a character that in 1838 Robert Stephenson named a train after him, as train mania started to grip the country.

Young Harvey Session IPA 4% is an easy to drink, dark gold IPA packed full of classic citrus & fruity hops. A classic with a twist. We think Harvey would approve.


Session IPA | 4.5%ABV

Welcome to the Watneys Cosmo, inspired by Cosmo Bonsor – a distinguished gent who lead Watneys for decades, who was a director at the Bank of England, an MP, and who ran train companies back when they ran on time! Check him out here and check out our citrus session IPA across the UK. The citrus zest used in the brew, and the mandarina hop give a subtle fruitiness to this great session IPA. Cheers Cosmo!



Inspired by our past, Ravensbeer remembers when the Watneys brewery borrowed a raven from the Tower of London during The Blitz in 1940.

Ravensbeer is a rich mahogany colour, with a depth of flavour and packed full of hops.

Ray of Sunshine

Blonde | 3.8%ABV

We’ve been working long and hard to come up with the perfect beer for the summer, something light, refreshing, and yet packed full of flavour… well here it is – Ray of Sunshine.

Taking inspiration from the infamous Monty Python sketch featuring Watneys Red Barrel, Ray of Sunshine weighs in at a sessionable 3.8% ABV. The cascade, Amarillo and summit hops give a full citrus flavour in this great addition to the Watneys stable.
