Shropshire Lad

Award winning Premium Bitter, 4.5% abv

Cask Beers / Year Round Beers / Available all year

First brewed in 1996 to celebrate the centenary of the first publication of a Shropshire Lad by A. E. Housman, this 4.5% premium bitter was an instant hit.

“Lad” is now our best seller and its well rounded malty flavour is evocative of the county and a bucolic lifestyle.  Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts combine to give a sweetish draught followed by a subtle bitterness and fruity overtones from the infusion of traditional Fuggles and Goldings hops from the neighbouring hop fields of Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

In these days of golden style ales this well rounded chestnut coloured beer harks back to an earlier age.

Also available bottled.
