Each week, we’re saving moments of little laughs, inspiration and wonder to share with you all.
So far, that’s included everything from cat gymnastics, to ‘wall art’ from Ruairi (age 2 and heir to the Stratford Haven), to DJ sessions from our brewery manager Jon.
A little bit of frivolity can only be a good thing right now. Social media has proved to be a vital resource for friends and family to connect with each other safely, but also a hive of positivity; a fertile breeding ground for the hilarious, the ridiculous and the heart-warming.
(That said, the internet is certainly a reminder of the crisis we find ourselves in and should embarked on in small and sensible doses. We advise only reading news from reliable sources and balancing it out with all the good to be found elsewhere.)
Our own Castle Rock staff page has been a hub for many Castle Rock colleagues, as we share all manner of updates with each other, and many of our ‘favourites’ come straight from there.

Cabazon – our collab with Neon Raptor
Cabazon is a Castle Rock x Neon Raptor West Coast pale with bold assertive flavours. In balance, there's a sweet backdrop of robust flavours from the Golden Promise and Vienna malts. With the bitterness you'd expect from a West Coast pale, Cabazon also packs subtle notes of gooseberry, grapefruit and pine, with a sweet biscuity finish.

Wow, What a Yard Party
How long has it been since we were gathered at a festival together? It certainly feels like a while. Well, at Castle Rock Brewery, we finally broke that three-year hiatus last month with the much-anticipated return of our Yard Party. In fact, it was so all-consuming that we’re only just getting round to doing our review now, almost a month later! At least that’s our excuse…
