Join the craft ale revolution with Gunner’s Gold, the zesty new ale from Abingdon’s Loose Cannon Brewery. It’s full of crisp citrus flavours and honours local hero and Lancaster bomber veteran Stan Bradford. Modest strength, maximum refreshment.
"Very nice ale. Very reasonably priced and not too hoppy. Just right to make you happy!"
Handcrafted ale is gaining a new lease of life in the UK and Gunner’s Gold is leading the way. It comes from Will Laithwaite’s Loose Cannon brewery, which opened in 2011 and re-established three centuries of brewing tradition in Abingdon (which seemed lost forever when Morland closed its doors for the last time 11 years earlier). Gunner’s Gold is named in honour of local Abingdon hero and Lancaster bomber veteran Stan Bradford (the distinctive World War II aircraft is featured on the label). It’s a classic golden ale that’s best served gently chilled to fully appreciate its crisp hoppiness and refreshing citrus flavours. Medium strength and totally refreshing, there’s no better beer for an uplifting lunchtime glassful than Gunner’s Gold.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
