Product information



EST. 1851.



Powerfully Hopped & 100% Cornish Malt.

Traditional Recipe.

India Pale Ale dates back to the 19th century when it was brewed and supplied to all parts of the British Empire. Proper Job is an authentic IPA brewed with Cornish Spring water and malt made from 100% Cornish grown Maris Otter barley.

Proper Job is dedicated to the 32nd (Cornwall) Regiment who stoutly defended their garrison during the Indian Mutiny in 1857 58. Throughout the siege the traditional 'Sunset Ceremony' (beating the 'Retreat' and lowering the National flag) was ignored as an act of defiance to the mutineers.

In recognition of a 'Proper Job', Queen Victoria awarded the 32nd the honour of becoming a Light Infantry Regiment.
