2020 was the 400th year celebration of the Pilgrim Fathers sailing off in the Mayflower to discover the new world of America. Many of the Pilgrim Fathers came from North Nottinghamshire and worshipped at Babworth Church just outside of Retford. We (the Joseph Camm family) have had a long relationship with the church having all been married, christened and many buried there. Pilgrim ale was our way of celebrating this major historic event.

New bottling line Robert Jenrick MP

Mr Robert Jenrick MP visited Pheasantry Brewery to officially ‘open’ and see the new bottling production line on Friday 14th June. Other guests included Mike Benner, retiring Chief Executive of SIBA, Peter Kerr from AB UK who supplied the Moravek line, Martin from Lincolnshire Coop who is one of the Pheasantry’s major bottle customers as well as Lincolnshire CAMRA – Steve and Wendy Renshaw and James Peck, the Regional Communication Advisor from the NFU. One of Robert’s roles in government sees him take a lead in taxation of the beer industry.

The bottling line was part funded by a 40% grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD), an agricultural fund that supports rural developments and helps farms diversify. The investment has increased the ale line efficiency and productivity not only for Pheasantry to bottle more of their own beers but to now enable the brewery to offer a third party bottling service to other breweries, cider, water and soft drink manufacturers. The project also included two new large fermenters that will increase brewing capacity and flexibility for both bottling and cask production.

A group dedicated to creating a memorial of Lincoln’s tank history has also launched a special ale.

The Lincoln Tank Memorial Group created Lincoln Tank Ale with the help of Pheasantry Brewery of East Markham.

lincoln tank aleThe ale is sold by Small Beers of Lincoln and by the brewery direct, and is a “well hopped, classic English” beer with “full rounded flavour” and low to medium bitterness.

The tank group are presently trying to bring a life size replica of the first tank, produced in Lincoln, to Tritton Road roundabout.

However, it will cost the group almost £30,000 to erect, so a donation will be made to their efforts for each cask of Lincoln Tank Ale sold.

So far, the Group has seen a number of donations, including a £10,000 offering from online strategy game, World of Tanks.

Joe Cooke Chairman of the group, said: “This is another welcome addition to our fundraising efforts and we are very grateful to Mark Easterbrook from Pheasantry Brewery for his support, we have already received emails from people who have tasted the beer and remarked how pleasant it is to contribute to the project in such an enjoyable way!”


Pheasantry Brewery’s Mark Easterbrook added: “We were keen to become involved when the tank group contacted us earlier this year, already there is keen interest in the beer from pubs either wanting to support the project or wanting to try out the new brew.”
