Named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel's Box Tunnel which opened in 1841 as part of the rail link between London and Bristol, it remains in daily use. The tunnel lies close to the Box Steam brewery, hence its inspiration for this traditional English bitter.
Tunnel Vision is brewed with 90% Maris Otter and Crystal malts with some wheat added. Target hops are used with Challengers and Goldings.
