Widdi is one of the more outspoken and entertaining people in the industry.

The beers being planned are 5 cask and 5 Keykeg.

Cask will include Revival, those of you who remember Dark Star Brewery as it used to be, this is a classic revival of a 2005 recipe well hopped American Pale brewed in collaboration with the Evening Star, Brighton and Rob Jones formerly of Dark Star, there will also be an Elusive collabortion West Coast IPA.

Keykegs will be:

cam-raa (7.0%, chocolate vanilla stout)
combat artist (6.0%, simcoe, nelson, motueka NEIPA)
little tiles (4.5%, mosaic pale)
queen of the galaxy (5.5%, hazy pale)
bags from above (5.5%, west coast IPA)

Here is Downlands introduction to themselves…

It’s safe to say that we love beer. In fact we love beer so much that we started our own brewery and it’s an employment requirement that everyone who joins our team shares that passion. Obviously we’re a business so we have to make a profit each year so we can carry on working in the industry we love and we’ve been doing that for over a decade by making the best beer that we can.

You may not always (ever) understand our sense of humour but there’s definitely a streak of mischief running through all of us. There are hidden messages in some of our artwork which you may, or may not, have already noticed. If you think we’re consumed with our own importance then you’re greatly mistaken. Sure there’s a load of things we have to take seriously and professionally while we’re working so that our products are consistent and we adhere to all the required legal standards but after that we’re only interested in having some fun and making beer. We might also occasionally be a bit sweary.

We firmly believe that beer is a social beverage that tastes better if you’re consuming it in a pub, bar, or club and even more so if you’re engaged in conversation. We’ve built our operation around this belief which is why we don’t package any of our products in bottles or cans.

– Beer and laughs. Not bullshit.
