Siren are firmly established as one of the leading lights in the UK's growing independent beer scene, having achieved a fine balance between accessibility and adventure. Darron Anley left the comfort of a career in IT to set up the brewery in 2013 with an underlying philosophy to always make the beer they want to make.
They have stayed true to that guiding principle since, whether through their core range - which are designed to be approachable enough for the unitiated without compromising on flavour - or their myriad special releases. Siren's experimental bent is demonstrated through their stewardship of the Rainbow Project and the more recent Project Barista that has seen them seriously push the boundaries on the different ways coffee can be used in beer.
Siren also have exciting plans for expansion in the years to come, after smashing their target in a recent crowdfunding campaign, which will see them up production capacity and open up taprooms in new locations across the country.

We've collaborated with them on one beer so far, a barrel-aged sour that is due to be released in the near future.
