Tour de Wot?
Originally brewed to mark the Yorkshire Grand Depart of the 2014 Tour de France 4.0% ABV
Strange though it may seem but the world famous Tour de France cycle race of 2014 had it's ‘Grand Depart’ first stage routed through the winding roads of the Yorkshire Dales. Quite by chance the route took the three hundred race participants right through the middle of Masham, our home town in which we have been brewing our famous beers since 1827. It seemed totally appropriate then to mark this extraordinary and auspicious event by brewing an especial brew to quench the thirst of these riders and the many supporters of the Tour throughout the country. As a salute to the Yorkshire Dalesman, a breed not always troubled by the events of contemporary sporting activity and uttered by a local when first abridged of the forthcoming event, we have decided to call the beer ‘Tour de Wot?’
TASTING NOTES: A delightful, tropical fruit flavoured ale with a clean, zesty, thirst-quenching finish
Theakston ‘Tour de Wot?’ is a delicious combination of British barley brewed with the rare Amarillo hop from the US and traditional English hops to give a an exceptional brew with luscious tropical mango and lychee flavours. An ideal accompaniment to tapas and cheeseboards. Heaven in a glass!
