As well as our semi-permanent core range of ales we bring out a number of 'specials' throughout the year to keep all of the creative juices flowing.
Please see the individual Bottle, Cask and Keg pages above for details on which beers are available.
VINTAGE 2015 - 6.6%
For our new Vintage Ale 2015 the core ingredients remain the same as previous years, with the addition of Enigma hops from Australia. Drink it fresh to pick up the hop character, or store it cool to develop a host of complex ageing flavours.
As with all our Vintage collection we have included some oak character, this year from a proportion of burgundy aged barley wine blended into the finished beer.
BRISTLETOE - 4.7%
This years edition of Bristletoe uses rolled oats and traditional brown porter malt to produce a rich bodied and full flavoured beer that punches well above its modest Christmas ABV, allowing you to enjoy more!
UN/LIMITED - OUR PREMIUM RANGE
Our UN/LIMITED range is all about experimentation and the creation of something extra special, our brewers have been given the freedom to get really creative. These are brewers beers for those with adventurous tastes: a premium product on the higher end of the alcohol percentage scale so that flavour can be maximized.
DOUBLE IPA - 8.5%
At 8.5%, its one of the best examples of this style of beer that you are likely to taste. It’s all about the hops & so in addition to the normal hop additions for bittering & late addition we have added to 2 dry hop additions post fermentation to really ram home the message.
The blend of Simcoe, Citra, Amarillo and Centennial hops really give you the full American Double IPA experience whilst keeping the bitterness very clean and crisp. Hop aromas are one of the first characteristics of a beer that diminish so it is essential to drink this beer fresh, as close to the bottling time as possible, this is the reason why we put the date that is bottled as well as a best before date.
ALL GONE NOW!
BELGIAN RYE - 7%
The second beer to be released in the range is a creation all of our own – an amalgamation of three different styles of beer. It's like a marriage between an American Rye and a Belgian Trappist style.
The yeast and the rye that are giving most of the flavour – the Trappist style yeast comes up on the nose, with floral & fruity hop aroma, a mild bitterness and a spicyness that lingers from the rye.
ALL GONE NOW!
WHEAT WINE - 10%
This oak bourbon barrel aged, smooth & full bodied beer has been blended with cold brewed coffee provided by Extract Coffee Roasters & fermented with our triple strain house yeast. At 10%, this is a beer that has to be savoured like a fine wine.
AVAILABLE IN 330ml BOTTLES
BARLEY WINE - 10%
The results of six months studying Barley Wine ageing have been brewed into this dark, red Burgundy barrel aged winter warmer.
Made to drink now or to age for many years.
Floor malted Maris Otter and extra dark crystal malts add richness and dried fruit flavours. A mountain of whole leaf English hops in the boil followed by extended ageing in oak impart the preservative and antioxidant compounds that both prevent staling, as well as promoting the development of unique novel flavours which will emerge over the years.
AVAILABLE IN 330ml & 750ml BOTTLES
SOUTHERN CONSPIRACY - 6.8%
Four years in planning. Wonderfully aromatic new season New Zealand hops mix with soft oak and delicate fruit aromas from months ageing in white Burgundy barrels. Added to this are intriguing aromatics from the wild yeast present in the fresh wine lees on which the beer was conditioned.
AVAILABLE IN 330ml BOTTLES & KEG
RUSSIAN IMPERIAL - 10%
The biggest stout we’ve ever brewed. Hugely rich and warming. Cocoa, dark roasted coffee and liquorice. Enjoyed best from a brandy snifter to capture every aroma.
AVAILABLE IN 330ml BOTTLES
