From Grapes To Glass - How Is Wine Made?

The art of winemaking has been around for thousands of years. It’s a natural process which requires very little intervention from humans, but each winemaker will guide the process through various techniques. Generally, there are 5 basic elements to creating wine: harvesting, crushing and pressing, fermentation, clarification, and finally, ageing and bottling. Winemakers will follow these five steps but often add in their own variations along the way to help create their own unique wine.

Everything You Need To Know About Pale Ale

It’s malty, it’s golden or amber in colour, it’s clear and pure and it’s the original inspiration for the longstanding American craft beer tradition. What is it? It’s pale ale. This is the drink that filled a large gap in the market place because not everyone enjoys a rich, dark stout, and lagers might not be your thing either. Not heavy to drink, and a wide range of flavours to try, there are plenty of reasons why you should test drive a pale ale to see what you think.

Ale vs Beer: The Difference Between Ale And Beer

Are you someone with definite preferences when it comes to beer? If so, you’re not alone. In general, most people who are beer drinkers have one or another they like best. Either they tend to go for ale when they’re out for a drink with friends, or they have a stated preference for lager.

Types Of Ale: A Beginners Guide

Summer is fast approaching, which means there is no better time than now for perfecting your beer palette. But what do we even mean by that and more importantly where do you even begin? Well, when it comes to trying out new ale beers, often the easiest way to start is by looking at your current favourite and from there, picking out some subtleties of the flavour. Looking at the colour of the ale beer can be a great general indicator of the flavour, the beer brewing process and also the history behind it too.

6 Beer Styles Which All Savvy Beer Drinkers Need To Know

The list of recognised beer categories seems to be growing every day. If the more obscure classics such as salty-sour goses and herbal fruits weren’t enough to bewilder beer newcomers, newly invented styles including India pale lagers and Black IPAs only continue to add to the confusion. However, if you go to the bar and just say the words “All I want is a beer” when looking at an overcrowded menu at your local pub, hopefully learning about these six beer styles will ensure you never freeze up in terror when placing your next beer order.

Our Story

Redh is the brainchild of two Sussex born guys; Richard Edwards and Douglas Howard.  Great friends from school who have been known to enjoy an occasional drink or two! 

Following an impromptu visit to a small local brewery, they questioned why they had not heard of the quality beer even though it was on their door step?  The big lightbulb moment followed shortly after!  “Why don’t we create a business that can connect local people with local produce?”  They found that many smaller producers struggle to find the time and the resources to promote their craft goods.  That is where Redh will come to the rescue.  Providing a bar to discover, taste and sell predominantly English quality drinks and morsels, plus a website to reach folk further afield.

The beautiful Edwardian Post Office building in Haslemere (Richard and Douglas’ local town) will now become the hub of Redh.  Providing space for a bar/cafe, function area, shop - and as an added bonus the Post Office counter too! The Redh team welcome you to our website, or visit and drink with us in our Haslemere watering hole (no problems if you just buy a stamp!).
