In 1874 there was only one beer produced in the Brewery but by 1960 this had grown to eight. These were three draught beers – a light mild, a dark mild and XB bitter and five bottled beers: IPA, Double Brown, Nut Brown, Dinner Ale and B.B.B. Up until the mid 1970’s naturally conditioned Guinness, Bass and Worthington was also bottled at Batemans.

Up to 1995 Batemans bottled their own beers. The original range of IPA, Nut Brown, Double Brown and Dinner Ale was joined by Victory Ale, a beer brewed in conjunction with CAMRA to celebrate the end for the ‘Battle for Independence’ and subsequently Triple XB and Valiant. The latter three were not only sold in Supermarkets throughout the UK but also in North America, Japan and Europe.
