    I opened my first keg of it an hour ago and I can’t stop drinking it. I am in love.

  2. Robert Mellor (verified owner)

    During lockdown, with the absence of pubs, I’ve had a real craving for beer from the tap. Sure, a bottle of Old McGuffin’s 9% Goat Scratcher has it’s place, but sometimes it’s nice to have a regular beer, from a tap. A pint, maybe a bit more, or a bit less. Good Old Boy in a mini-keg has been a revelation… absolutely delicious, minimal packaging, no waste. Thoroughly recommended.

  3. David Russell (verified owner)

    I really enjoy Good Old Boy! A traditional amber bitter with great flavour and the 9pint kegs ensure that it keeps in excellent condition. Good value and excellent service from WBB.

  4. Dave Langhorn (verified owner)

    Great beer from a fab local brewery. Easy to order and excellent delivery service. Highly recommended.

  5. Ivan Dale (verified owner)

    Love this ale. One of my favourites. Delivery was fast too. Very happy!

  6. John Gouk (verified owner)

    Brilliant sales and delivery service – my local Parcel Force guy asks me when I’m getting some more every time I see him! An excellent beer, full of flavour. Since I can’t manage a whole keg on my own, I drink the bottled version, which I prefer to open and pour aggressively to match the keg level of CO2.

    As a real aler of over fifty years standing, I do consider myself somewhat of an expert. I am not usually overly keen on bottled beers mainly because of the fizz. Good Old Boy is the exception to the rule, not too fizzy and despite only being four percent, a really tasty ale. Very flavoursome.

  8. David Sinclair (verified owner)

    Good Old Boy is my favourite beer. It’s smooth, tasty and bitter. It’s a great beer any time you fancy a beer.

    What could be better? Good Old Boy delivered direct to your door – no fuss, no lockdown issues; just a very, very fine pint!

  10. Steve Banks (verified owner)

    Basically I can remember the first time I had a pint of Good Old Boy when the brewery first brewed this lovely beer. Even now it is just perfection and beauty that you could ever want in one glass ! So that is why you need a few pints. Obviously be happier to be able to sit in a pub beer garden on a nice day supping the amber nectar to the gods. But in the meantime having it delivered is like having fresh milk delivered to your door. Lovely!

    Great beer. I used to drink it wherever I could when we went out. Now I’m on the bottled at home. Helping keep me sane. Excellent delivery service from WBB

  12. parkysan (verified owner)

    This beer is fantastic and one of my all-time favourites. I always prefer to pick up from the brewery and it’s always been a great service with no issues.

  13. Al (verified owner)

    Perfect best bitter. Lockdown would have been unbearable without a proper pint so all hail the WBB.

  14. Robert Olive (verified owner)

    Excellent bottles beer, close to cask beer and VERY drinkable, especially at home during lockdown. Price is reasonable, and the click and collect service is excellent. Thank you.

  15. nicbayley (verified owner)

    WBB beers have kept me sane through lockdown. Draft ale delivered to my home: the only thing better would be for the pubs to be open. And what beer! Handing my stepson a pint of draft Good Old Boy he took a big swig and said: ‘This must be the very best beer in the world!’ And what variety! Dr Hexter’s, Maharajah IPA – each one perfection in its own style. But GOB IS the best beer ever!

  16. Martin Moran

    Great beer from an exceptional brewery. As good from the bottle as the tap…but looking forward to having a pint at WBB when it opens again

  17. Leslie Fox

    Great surprise present from my wife and it tasted great.

  18. Philip Brown (verified owner)

    Great beer. Good value considering it’s from an independent brewery. Very good website.

    Great Beer , Husband loved his present

  20. Paul Yeates (verified owner)

    Having used WBB over the last few years i must say that the good old boy is as good today as ir was when i started drinking it. I normaly order the mini keg but recently purchased the bottles, aagin it tastes just as good as the mini keg. I will continue to order beer from WBB and would strongly recomend to anybody eishing to try their ales.

    Not much else to say really.
