Batemans is featured along with Melissa’s must try recommendation of Victory and XXXB.

Melissa said that Batemans has been a “venerable family brewery for four generations with the admirable slogan ‘Run by brewers, not accountants.’ You’ll know you’re near when you see the windmill, which is also the brewery logo.”
