About Direct Beers      Our Beers



 Cat's Pee: Pale Ale 4.8% ABV
We rescue stray cats from all over England. We feed them on the finest hops and barley, a bit of yeast, and plenty of water, and we harvest the result, using a sophisticated system of irrigation. The result is a refreshing, powerfully hopped, pale ale. No cats were harmed in the production of this beer.

Old Fart: Best Bitter 4.8% ABV
Let’s face it, we all have an Old Fart in the family, and he usually likes a good old glass of bitter. With this in mind, our Old Fart is a robust, perfectly balanced, copper coloured best bitter, brewed to give a good dry hop taste, with a little malt sweetness. Caution! Too many of these, and your old fart will be farting like a trooper.

Dog's Pee: Smooth Stout 4.5% ABV

We select chocolate labradors with the highest pedigree. We feed them on the finest hops and barley, a bit of yeast, and plenty of water, and we collect the result via a sophisticated irrigation method. The result is a very smooth, rich, full-flavoured English stout. No dogs were harmed in the
production of this beer.


Bullshit: Golden Bitter 4.1% ABV

For all of those who are prone to a bit of bullshitting every now and then, we offer this traditional pale, copper coloured bitter. This particular edition is our very own tribute to one of the biggest bullshitters of all, our dear old Prime Minister.

Dandelion & Birdshit: Dark Mild 3.7%

Our ships sale the oceans to collect birdshit produced by Peruvian seabirds. We add this to the dandelions we steal from farmers’ fields around Derbyshire. (we don’t think they mind). The result is a beautiful, mellow, malty mild, named in honour of your favourite childhood pop.

Big Cock: Golden Beer 4.2% ABV

This beautiful, pale, golden beer is produced using very floral hops, lending it almost a hint of sherbert. It’s brewed in honour of all those who like to exaggerate their credentials. Don’t get too excitable, it’s just a chicken!
Grumpy Git: Amber Ale 4.8% ABV
We all know the Grumpy Git: he’s only happy when he’s moaning. It’s too hot or it’s too cold; the music’s too loud or he can’t hear it. He’s grumpy at work, he’s grumpy at home, he’s grumpy at the shops, he’s grumpy watching tele.....Let's face it, he's just plain grumpy, and that's why we love him so much..
Arse Liquor: IPA 4.0% ABV

Lazy Sod: Golden Beer 4.0% ABV 
We thought we might like to have a nice light session beer in our range, and sat down with a selection of our bottles, to decide how it should be done. We umm'ed and ahh'ed and pontificated a while, discussed other, unrelated matters, and generally put the world to rights, while liberally sampling our beers. Eventually, we yawned, stretched our weary limbs, went home, and let someone else brew it instead. 
Puke: Golden Beer 5.0% ABV
Oooooooh, my head. You don't want to know, seriously you don't want to know. Don't even ask.........Can someone please turn down that noise? Ooooh, never again.......draw the curtains please......birgh, birgh, blrrraaaaaaghghghg...........That's better.

Shitfaced: Premium Bitter 5.0% ABV
We settled down for a serious discussion to consider the merits or otherwise of our particular approach to beer branding. To lubricate the proceedings we decided to open a few bottles of our famous ales. The conversation turned from serious to raucous, and from business, to fast cars, loose women, and beer......So we brewed this.
