“A recreation of one of the most popular beers we have ever brewed”
2020 marks the 40th anniversary of our very first brew back in 1980. Throughout our 40 years, we’ve always prided ourselves on sourcing only the finest British hops & malts to brew first class, award-winning real ales that truly stand the test of time. This year we will be brewing a range of beers, both draught and bottled to mark this anniversary.
To start our 40th year we wanted to brew a beer that represented our unique heritage and commitment to innovation and authenticity. In our brewing archives we came across one of the most popular beers we have ever brewed – a beer we brewed in collaboration with CAMRA and Mr Roger Protz to mark the 40th Anniversary of the Good Beer Guide back in 2013. It was a dark ruby hue with a lusciously rich and complex malt base; it proved a hit with our customers and CAMRA supporters alike.
For the first in our 2020 series, we have recreated that beer in draught form at a quaffable 4.5% ABV (1045 OG). The five grains and five hops produce a big and bold beer with notes of cedar and raisins. Each grain and hop represent one of our four decades; the fifth is a nod to the future.
