Fortification

ABV 7.3% OG 1067

STOP PRESS! Fortification has just picked up a GOLD award at the North East Regional SIBA awards, in the strong cask beers category, so it goes through to the National Finals in Liverpool in March 2018.

This is our stock ale, a beast of a beer, strong, dark and full of flavour, heavily hopped with UK Cascade, Bramling Cross and Admiral, matured for several months to allow the flavours to develop and mellow. We will sell some of it as a strong old ale, and use the rest to blend with our core beer range in small batches, giving stronger fortified versions of these beers – rare beers you need to catch when you can, as there’s not going to be much of it about!

Tasting Notes

A dark ruby red ale, with rich fruit/plum flavours very reminiscent of a traditional English barley wine. Hopped with Bramling Cross, UK Cascade and Admiral.
