Why ‘Flak’ Shack?

It was during the Second World War that the Stanbridge Earls Estate and Roke Manor in Romsey served as a rest and recuperation centre for aircrew. Known as Station 503 and endearingly called Flak Shack, this was the brewery’s inspiration for the name Flack Manor Brewery. True to this historical connection, the on-site shop has become a shrine to WWI regalia and retains the correct historical spelling.

The shop sells bottled varieties of Flack’s key brands – Flack’s Double Drop, Flack Catcher, Hedge Hop, Romsey Gold and Black Jack Porter, all brewed using the double drop method of brewing.  It is also a small bar, perfect for small gatherings and tasting sessions, and to pick up a carry out of our draft ale.  We tend to have our permanent ales on draft, along with a seasonal.

In addition, the shop sells mustards and preserves all locally make with Flack’s ales.  Branded glasses, our Flack Flask, coffee mugs, polo and rugby shirts and fleece tops also make handy gifts for beer aficionados.
