Old Ales are a traditional English beer sometimes called stock ales, that traces its origins to before the use of hops, sometimes called “strong” or “keeping” ales. These were strong, malty beers that were left to mature in barrels, which smoothed out the flavours and provided a long secondary fermentation with wild yeast.

Centuries ago a secondary fermentation with the wild yeast “brettanomyces” was a hallmark of fine British beers. As they aged Old Ales developed a smooth, rich character similar to port wine. Our version is blend of 4,3 and 2 year old barrels, include a bourbon barrel aged beer which adds winter spice notes to the rich malt flavours and tart finish.
