Cornish Knocker

Cornish Knocker was Skinner’s first ale. It’s a golden ale brewed with Cornish water; whole-flower Celeia, Northdown and Aurora hops; Cornish malted barley and wheat; and Skinner’s unique yeast.


Cornish Knockers were known as the Tin Mine Fairies. They lived down the mines and used to guide the miners to the rich veins of tin with their knocking.

A strong, clean tasting golden Ale, not too sweet with a fresh flowery aroma.
Famously drinkable, and an original favourite among die-hard Skinner's aficionados, it was also the 1998 Supreme Champion Beer of the Southwest
