Craft Beer - Shipyard - American Pale Ale
Amber & Fruity
A beer born out of a conversation between Master Brewers Alan Pugsley of Shipyard Brewing Co. and Simon Yates of Marston's to craft a classic American style Pale Ale to satisfy the growing thirst of British drinkers for American craft beers.
The beer is dry hopped for greater aroma and flavour with a quartet of four American hop varieties – Chinook, Cascade, Columbus and Centennial delivering a big, bold, brash hoppy beer. Drop anchor for a spell and enjoy.
Enjoy this classic, refreshing American style Pale Ale bursting with grapefruity citrus flavour.
Craft Beer - Theakston - Pale Ale
Pale & Refreshing
Up until the mid-1980s, Pale Ale was a popular brand in the Theakston range of bottled beers and throughout the UK but with changing consumer fashions and the resurgent interest in cask conditioned beers, the popularity of a one-time mainstay of the British beer industry faded. But, as they say ‘what goes round comes around’ and once again Pale Ale has returned on a wave of popularity encouraged by the growing consumer interest in new world craft keg ales. This wonderful news has encouraged us to brew Pale Ale once again this time with a modern twist. Cold filtered and unpasteurised, the process has enabled us to produce a beautifully subtle flavoured pale-coloured ale using a blend of new world hops noted for their refreshing characteristics in a mash of British and European malts.
