A focus on quality beer has always been our top priority, so much so that mid pandemic we invested in our own canning facility to enable us to control the beer from raw ingredients to shelf ready products.

Titanic Brewery was founded in Burslem Stoke on Trent in 1985 by Staffordshire brothers Keith and Dave Bott with one goal, to produce great beer! Burslem was the mother town of the Potteries and had many great names who had started their careers amongst the bottle kilns and smoke.Using only the very finest ingredients money can buy the opulence shines out of the glass, whether the beer is drunk in one of our pubs, one of our fabulously supportive local customer’s pubs or at home, we are looking for the same reaction, “I’ll have another one of those please.”
Based on a Dairy farm in rural Somerset in 2012, The Wild Beer Co was born out of a love of fermentation, barrel-ageing and most importantly, flavour. Unconstrained by stylistic guidelines and led by flavour, we celebrate traditional techniques whilst embracing a sense of modernity in our brewing. Inspired by ingredients, the wild nature of our beers is seen in the use of alternative fermentations, unorthodox yeasts and seasonally-foraged ingredients with Barrel-ageing and blending at the heart of it. We wait patiently for the beers in our library of over 600 barrels, where time reveals complex layers and flavours.
