Cascade Pale  ABV 4.5%

This pale ale is brewed with predominantly pale malt, with just small amounts of caramalt and wheat malt.  American Cascade hops produce over 30 IBUs of bitterness, and then lashings of Cascade are used in the latter stages of the brewing process to produce the wonderful aroma.

 

 

Chocolate Porter  ABV 4.5%

A traditional porter recipe, comprising pale, crystal, brown and chocolate malts, together with Target hops for bitterness and Fuggles hops for aroma (25 IBUs).  Cocoa bean extract is added to the conditioning tank prior to bottling, to add to the rich, dark, chocolaty flavour.

 

 

Bosphorous 1875  ABV 6.1%

This is dark ruby ale is based on a Victorian recipe for mild ale - from the days when 'mild' was not synonymous with low alcohol and a lack of flavour.  Pale, crystal and black malts give the rich, malty flavour,
with Fuggles hops providing a relatively low 24 IBUs of bitterness,
plus some hop aroma.

Do your research and see if you can find where the name comes from.

 

Slavanka 1873  ABV 7.2%  330ml bottle

An Imperial Russian Stout, based on a Victorian recipe - there's a clue to the Russian connection in the name.  Brown and black malts make up nearly half of the grain bill, so this is about as dark and rich as they come.  Target and Fuggles hops produce a whopping 70 IBUs of bitterness.  The high ABV means it'll  continue to mature over a long period of time and so keep for years.

 

Saazy Blonde  ABV 4.0%

This beer is available throughout the year but is ideal summer drinking and one to tempt lager drinkers in to trying some proper beer!  Pale malt, together with large amounts of caramalt and wheat malt, produce a straw-coloured beer.  Saaz hops from the Czech Republic provide minimal bitterness (19 IBUs) and a lovely aroma.

 

Anchor Pale Ale  ABV 4.5%

A traditional English pale ale, made with pale malt, pale crystal malt, caramalt and wheat malt.  Admiral hops provide a gentle 25 IBUs of bitterness as well as the citrusy aroma. 

 

 

 

Double-Anchor IPA  ABV 6.2%

To complement the Anchor Ale we've produced a Double Anchor version, in the style of a traditional India Pale Ale i.e. high in alcohol and heavily hopped, so as to withstand the long voyage from England to India in the 19th century.  The grains are pale and crystal malts, plus some flaked oats for head retention and body.  A blend of Target and Target hops produces over 60 IBUs of bitterness.  

 

Meaux Abbey Ale  ABV 8.4%  330ml bottle

This was first brewed to celebrate our 50th commercial brew in January 2017 and is now one of our regular beers.  It's a Belgian-style abbey ale, named after the Cistercian abbey founded in 1151, just to the north of Hull.  Pale malts and an assortment of brown sugars are used to produce a strong, light ale with a complex range of flavours.

 

Larkin's Bitter ABV 4.4%

The latest addition to our range is a traditional bitter, named after the poet Philip Larkin who created some of his greatest work whilst living in Hull.  It's brewed with pale and crystal malts and just a touch of chocolate malt for colour and flavour.  Wheat malt and flaked oats create a good head.  Target hops are used for bittering and Fuggles for aroma.

 

Green Hop Bitter  ABV 4.5% (Seasonal Beer - AVAILABLE NOW)

A traditional English bitter, made with fresh English hops grown in sunny Hull - Fuggles for bitterness and Challenger for aroma.  The grains are mainly pale malt, with some crystal and black malt for flavour and colour.

 

Avenues Pale Ale  ABV 4.0% (Seasonal Beer - AVAILABLE NOW

This beer follows our Cascade Pale recipe (see above) but is brewed using fresh Cascade hops grown in the Avenues area of Hull.  The aroma is more subtle than the usual Cascade Pale and it's well worth a try.
