Abbot Ale

Westgate Brewery - Greene King ABV 5.0% £3.90

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.
