Known to most only as a story passed down from generation to generation. The Brewbacca was known as a fearsome beast, feared by ramblers and loathed by farmers who blamed missing sheep to this pink, fluffy but large toothed being.
No sightings had been recorded since a hazy photo in 1933, claimed to have captured the beast bathing in the waters of Buxton Mill. The photo was destroyed in a house fire just days after being taken, which just added to the fear and myths surrounding this mystical beast.
It was only after we had set up the brewery on land once revered as his stomping ground that we started to notice strange things… leaves, shoots and berries were left at the door every morning and beers were going strangely missing. We started to experiment by leaving new beers, made with ingredients from the daily offerings at the door each evening and the offerings began to increase.
After months of offerings, the beast finally showed itself and became tamer as each day progressed. It is now an integral part of Wildcraft Brewery and appears not only on our videos but our bottles, tshirts and glasses. Brewbacca is still not sure of new people, but who knows, visit and you may catch sight of his pink fur running through the fields around, foraging for the latest in season crops we can use in our beers…
