In a nutshell: Thirst quenching, hoppy golden IPA from the Exeter Brewery in Devon.
The lowdown: Fraid Not is The Exeter Brewery's hoppiest ale. Golden straw coloured and a lovely hoppy aroma with a distinct bitterness and dry finish on the palate. One of the brewery's most popular beers this is a real thirst quencher.
Founded in 2003 on the Exminster Marshes nature reserve the brewery came under its current ownership in 2007 at a time when craft brewing was exanding rapidly. Their original beer, and still one of their best sellers, was Ferryman a classic copper coloured best bitter. This was followed by Avocet a more modern style of citrussy golden ale and Devon's first organic real ale. In 2013 they relocated to new premises in the heart of Exeter which has allowed them to further extend operations and they are now very the main brewery of Devon's county town.
