Beer has been a source of refreshment and nourishment since ancient times and has inspired countless artists and great thinkers. It has fuelled rebellions and shaped British culture. Through times of peace and war; sorrow and joy; division and unity; our beer has always brought us together and reminded us that there is more that unites us than divides us – it is our Common Ground.
As we have strode (and occasionally stumbled) through the past 200 years, no brew has served us better than the world renowned India Pale Ale. A beer that was born with an eye on the horizon, it has travelled the world and been twisted and turned into all sorts of wonderful concoctions – It’s now enjoys more subgenres than an East London record shop! With this in mind, we wanted to take it back to the original, back to its roots – a true, classic Original IPA.
Full-bodied and weighing in at a decent 5.5% abv with a striking bitter finish. This is a big beer brimming with hop character that has adored by generation after generation. Brewed using the highest quality Maris Otter Pale, Wheat, Crystal, Cara and Biscuit malts and hopped with a blend of classic English hops – Goldings, Challenger and Fuggles – as well as a new variety of UK hop, the Olicana.
Due for release at the end of March ‘Common Ground’ will be a Limited Edition in 30L Keg and 9G Cask.
