Elizabethan Ale was originally produced in celebration of the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. 


This strong barley wine is reminiscent of the “October Ales” which were brewed in domestic brewhouses during the sixteenth century.

Food Pairing

Elizabethan Ale and a Ploughman's

There is patience here and it makes for a really complex dark full bodied ale with a real depth of flavour.
The sweet bouncy malt and savoury finish makes it perfect for a big traditional ploughman's or plate of strong cheese and dry smoked ham.

There's a rich sweetness that could mellow a bold blue cheese and would most certainly lift a smokey plate of barbecued meats.
