Hogshead Bitter

Brewed with Maris Otter Barley 4.1% ABV

Hogshead Bitter was first brewed in 1994 to commemorate the ‘Trussing In’ ceremony of one of our apprenticed craft Coopers. A hogshead is a 54 gallon cask that is used in the ceremony, an ancient ritual commemorating the completion of a Cooper apprenticeship and the commencement of life as a fully qualified Cooper.

Hogshead Bitter is a very traditional style of beer using the finest Maris Otter  malt, combined with luscious cane sugars complimented by delicious, fruity Bramling cross hops to give a malty, crisp and hoppy flavoured ale. It is one of our more popular seasonal ales and goes superbly with ham and light cheeses.

TASTING NOTES: Malty, Crisp and hoppy. This robust ale exhibits a maltiness with underlying tones of luscious cane sugars whilst the use of Bramling Cross dry hops contribute to the striking aroma and palate.
