Wooden Hand was established in 2004 and produces a collection of fine Cornish ales.
The brewery was born from the passion of a handful of Cornish pirates looking to brew up some exceptional cask and bottled ales after searching the high seas for inspiration and world brewing secrets.
The name, Wooden Hand comes from the ‘Black Hand’ of John Carew of Penwarne. He lost his hand during savage fighting at the great siege of Ostend at the beginning of the 17th century. It was recorded that he retrieved his severed hand from the battlefield and commissioned a replacement made with articulated fingers and brass joints. This is our Wooden Hand.
It is in the tradition of Cornish heroism and derring-do, that Wooden Hand’s ales are brewed.
Wooden Hand ales reflect the sea-faring history of Cornwall, the brewery of the Cornish sailors and the strong character of the people of Cornwall.
