HELLO
We are James and Sarah Pickering, owners of
Gun Dog Ales, a craft brewery situated in the
Northamptonshire village of Woodford Halse.
What started as an enthusiastic hobby at home
a few years ago, has grown into an exciting
business that is making us new friends on a
daily basis. with our hands-on team, we
produce a range of real ales for cask and
bottle using traditional and modern brewing
methods and our own recipes.

THE
PACK
We brew a range of regular cask ales
called ‘The Pack’ and a growing family of
‘Special Breeds’ – beers that match the
changing seasons or celebrate a specific
calendar event. All are made with the
finest natural ingredients sourced locally
wherever possible, spring water, yeast
and lots of loving care.

Our growing range of bottle conditioned
beers are proving extremely popular with
real ale fans, as they offer the same
flavour as our regular cask ales. We also
bottle a limited number of our Special
Breed ales.
