Abbot Ale

Westgate Brewery - Greene King ABV 5.0% £3.50

In Bury St. Edmunds – the home of Abbot Ale – brewing can be traced back 1,000 years. In fact, the Domesday Book records “cerevisiari” or ‘ale brewers’ who served the Abbot in the town’s Great Abbey.

Inheriting their fascinating experience, our brewing process has hardly changed over hundreds of years. It takes seven days to craft the perfect pint of Abbot Ale. Brewed for longer, the ale has masses of fruit character, malty richness and a superb hop balance. An award-winning beer, Abbot Ale was recently recognised with a prestigious 2014 Monde Gold Award.

Cricket

Grasshopper Brewery ABV 4.5% £3.60

A premium U.S. pale/amber ale at 4.5% featuring Mosaic & Centennial aroma hops. This popular style of American ale whilst being moderately hopped is not overwhelming. Its subtle sweetness carries the taste experience through to allow for the appreciation of the five types of specialty & pale malts. Again a very easy drinking well balanced brew with a clean finish.

Nut Brown

Shipstone's ABV 4.0% £3.60

This great English brown ale has a rich nut-brown colour, it is full of body and is exceptionally moreish. An aroma of freshly baked bread, roasting chestnuts and a hint of Nutella. The flavour is full of depth, fusing butterscotch and mild liquorice, caramel and roasted cacao and yet still retains that malty finish one would expect.
