“A celebratory ale to welcome the new year”
Chiltern Ruby was first brewed in January 2020 as a celebration of our 40th brewing anniversary. It proved so popular that we’ve decided to bring it back for 2021!
For Chiltern Ruby, 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.
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.
This will be a small-batch brew so make sure to keep an eye on our social media channels and email newsletters for full release details soon.
