What's your age again?

Perle and hallertauer tradition

Hells Lager

What the Hells? Thanks for asking.

Hells is the lovechild of our two favourite German beer styles - Helles and Pilsner. Clean, crisp and dry, it’s the beer we always wanted to drink and the reason we started our brewery. We hope you agree.

Camden Hells Lager

Takes a whole month to make

In German, the word ‘lager’ means ‘to store’ and our Hells Lager spends 4 weeks in the tank. This is the proper length of time for lagering, the right amount of time for our Hells to acquire great depth of flavour and enough time to grow a pretty decent beard.

Camden Hells Lager

Made with traditional German ingredients

Not bratwurst or sauerkraut but Bavarian Lager yeast, Perle and Hallertau Tradition hops and our own special house Pilsner malt from Bamberg (we’re one of the only two breweries outside Germany to use it).

No one likes a show off*

But like any proud parents, we can’t help mentioning that Hells has won International Brewing Awards Champion Keg Lager 2013, Bronze Medal European Beer Star 2013 and International Brewing Awards Silver 2015. Not bad for a 6 year old.
