World-renowned beer historian Ron Pattinson visited the brewery earlier this fall to brew this special Burton Ale with head brewmaster Jeff Hancock & resident historian Mike Stein. You can find Mr. Pattinson’s writings & more on his blog, Shut Up About Barclay Perkins, and enjoy a pint of this unique brew in our tasting room – available on draft only – starting Saturday, December 15th.
A modern recreation of a strong pale beer from centuries past. One malt, one hop and one yeast make this beer simple yet very complex. The excessive kettle hopping rates lends a dominant, yet subtle noble hop profile that drinks remarkably smooth as the beer warms in the glass. Like it was in the days before modern refrigeration. Clean finish, low but noticeable esters, pleasing bitterness, light herbal aromas combined with citrus candy and marmalade lollipop.
