XXX 4.3% PDF Print E-mail

At 4.3% XXX is described as a renowned beer brewed from a recipe passed down by the Roberts family who owned the brewery for several generations; a pale-straw-coloured, premium bitter with simple, light malty-sweetness, delicately balanced with light bitterness of floral, earthy character.  We like it very much!

Three Tuns XXX is brewed in the oldest licensed brewery in the UK. A brewing licence at the site was first granted in 1642 in the small market town of Bishop’s Castle, on the Shropshire/Welsh border.

Richards Vintage Dry 6.4% PDF Print E-mail

A new venture in cider down on Deeside, Flintshire, by two chums Scott Johnson & Warren Hughes and Scott's father Richard. Now in their third season, Richards Dry, now at 6.4% and delicious!

We've marked this up as a vintage cider as it's the last from the previous (DeeCiders 2nd) years batch. We'll be hitting the new batch shortly!

Oh yes, the cider got it's name from Scott's father Richard (if you haven't guessed already).

Taste Notes: Made from a blend of Welsh cider apples. A lovely hazy straw, easy drinking dry cider with a nice dry finish.

SCRUMptious 4.4% PDF Print E-mail

Off BeatOriginally made for the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, 2011, Offbeat Brewery have overhauled this recipe to bring it back in time for the Six Nations and again for the Rugby World Cup. Expect a sucker punch of hoppy flavours from a load of Amarillo and Chinook in this amber ale.

We're looking forward to this one from Brewster Michelle Kelsall who started Offbeat Brewery in the Borough Arms 2 barrel brew pub in Crewe during November 2010, and renting Unit 6, Thomas Street, for storage and office space. They rapidly outgrew the Borough Arms kit and pushed ahead to get a 6 barrel plant installed at the unit; a 2 barrel brewery just couldn't keep up with the demand.

 
Cornish Orchard Farmhouse 4.8% PDF Print E-mail

Cornish Orchards scrumptious premium farm cider is rich in fruity aromas and ripe apple flavour. The autumnal windfall apples are their inspiration for this delicious, mellow cider.

This cider won the 2012 Gold Award at the CAMRA National Cider and Perry Championships.

altCornish Orchards Ciders are made on the Duchy of Cornwall farm Westnorth Manor Farm in Duloe Cornwall.  A Duchy of Cornwall Cornish Orchards Project supported the restoration of old orchards across Cornwall or advised on planting new ones with old varieties. Local nurseries were commissioned to propagate over 60 varieties of apple tree, all traditionally grown in Cornwall.

Some of the varieties include Ellison's Orange, Beauty of Bath, Cornish Longstem, Tommy Knight and Colloggett Pippin.  Fresh picked under ripe fruit gave a sharp, clean juice. Apples that were ripe or over ripe produced a smoother, more mellow result.

Not only is it satisfying using West North Manor Farms own fruit, but being able to provide a source of income to farmers whose old orchards can still produce a crop is wonderful.

Taste Notes [under construction]: Made from a blend of cider apples. A lovely mellow medium cider with a nice finish.
