Box Steam Brewery, Funnel Blower 4.5%


Named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Great Eastern, the largest ship in the world back in 1859. It had five black steam funnels until a build up of steam two days after it’s launch, blew one of the funnels clean off. Funnel Blower is skilfully built from citrus Target, spicy Challenger and earthy Fuggle hops, making this porter a voyage of vanilla sweetness and bitter chocolate.

Over 100 years ago two young men started brewing next to Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Tunnel at Bath, and a century of brewing tradition began

In 2004 the Roberts family restored the derelict brewery with a view to producing great quality beer to be served in their own pub estate. They named their small enterprise Box Steam Brewery. The beers became hugely successful and the family quickly out-grew the Box site so moved to new premises near Holt, where the water has unique properties ideal for brewing. Andy and family invest consistently in the technology and systems at Box Steam Brewery to deliver the highest quality beer at all times.

Today, Box Steam Brewery is an award winning family business. They’ve now been brewing for almost 15 years, never producing a factory style beer. Their creative brewers, handcraft all beers in the brewery’s steam copper, using the very best malted barley from Warminster Maltings. The consistent high quality of their beers is maintained by using the best British hops such as Fuggles and Goldings (with some New World hops for aromatics) and a pure strain of English brewing yeast.

Their roots are firmly in the West Country, where they continue to be inspired by the engineering triumphs of the late great Isambard Kingdom Brunel, which infuses their brand throughout. Great ales at great prices.
