Brewery Celebrates 2 Year Anniversary with Exclusive Beer

110 exclusive bottles of Export India Porter 8% made to celebrate The Fresh Standard Brew Co’s 2 year Anniversary.

Stretching their 1.5 barrel brewhouse to its maximum it really is a very special brew, with 3 casks going to beer festivals and only a couple pins allocated to the Brewery Tap Room.


The Fresh Standard Brewery based in Woodchester outside of Stroud, are celebrating their second year anniversary by creating a special and very exclusive brew. An 8% ABV Export Porter brewed with just water, Cotswold Barley, hops and yeast, it is rich, indulgent and very special. 


After making a very popular Export Porter at  6% last year, they wanted to see how strong they could go with just 4 ingredients in their little Brewhouse.


Rich, warming with flavours evoking dark chocolate, this porter is very luxurious and very drinkable. Whilst the brewery mainly cans its beer they have chosen to bottle this batch as it will store well and improve with age.


As well as the 110 exclusive bottles, Export Porter will also be available to try on draught at:


  • The Old Spot Winter Beer Festival (Dursley 24th-27th Nov)
  • Pig’s Ear Beer Festival (Hackney 29th Nov- 3rd Dec)
  • The Prince Albert Rodborough (Date TBC)
  • The Tewkesbury Winter Ales Festival (26th-28th Jan)
  • The Fresh Standard taproom (Date TBC) (Friday and Saturday 2-9pm)  

The Fresh Standard Brew Co was established in November 2020 by husband and wife Richard and Charlotte Taylor. Richard has almost 10 years of brewing experience in the industry. They started cuckoo brewing at Artisan Ales in Aston Down, before getting their own premises in Woodchester in February this year.

As well as producing beer there, they also open as a taproom every Friday and Saturday.

Their main brewing philosophy is simple, low intervention beer using only 4 ingredients; water, barley, hops and yeast. They don’t use finings which means all of their beer is vegan friendly. They aim to create distinct beers, inspired by the Stroud valleys and the places we drink them.
