Although Ormskirk will always be where the soul of this project was forged, the OBC has ventured south and is currently setting itself up in Swindon.

Our aim is to be the first real ale brewing company in Old Town.

Earlier in 2011 I started Pulp Fusion where I am gradually up-scaling from my homebrew hobby into a small business providing Natural & Locally Crafted Country Wines & Real Ale.

The focus is on new craft wines such as Elderflower Sparkling and table wines such as Rhubarb.  Rather than go into detail here you’re best off visiting my Pulp Fusion website by clicking here.

Keep an eye out at local Farmers Markets or similar events.

Pendle Hedgerow Wine


Posted by admin | Posted in Berries, Drink, Foraging, Fruit, Homebrew, Wine | Posted on 31-05-2011

A special country wine has recently emerged from the Brew Centre…

Pendle Hedgerow Wine is made from fruits sourced from the Ormskirk area and includes:

  • Elderberries
  • Rosehips
  • Blackberries
  • Rhubarb

Three versions of the wine were created, one Dry at 12.7% vol and one sweet at 14% vol – both of which are bottled and have had 6 months conditioning.  The third is a special batch that has been batch maturing for over a year and will be ready in 2012.

Cannot wait…

Rhubarb Wine


Posted by admin | Posted in Drink, Foraging, Fruit, Homebrew, Wine | Posted on 14-04-2011

A genuine classic.

This was started during my early days of homebrew adventures and provided a strong motivation to keep going.

It is made from organic ingredients:

  • Rhubarb
  • Damson Plums
  • Lemon Juice.

The Rhubarb was grown in my own garden and the plums were local.  A lot of love and care went into this early wine and, luckily, it paid dividends.

With a pale, clear pink colour and an ever so smooth taste this country wine is a tad too easy to drink at 10.3 % vol.  Indeed in the early days many a bottle was finished before a secret stock was hidden away for future generations.  This stock is now back and ready for a lucky few…
