Our aim is to enrich the beer culture rather than repeating what other brewers are already doing. We take a lot of inspiration from historical brewing documents and half-forgotten traditions but we also like to make way forward by forging together elements from different beer cultures as well as through pure experimentation.
Brewed in the old tradition of March keeping beers, very strong beers meant for aging, this beer is intensely hopped during 3,5 hours of boiling in our direct-fired copper, fermented in open square to reach beyond 10% ABV and finally matured for more than six months before release. This Burton-style barley wine is a very characterful, rich and complex beer where the malty, hoppy and estery elements are elevated to the max. Best savoured on gloomy evenings by the candle light. Warning: This beer may be harmful to IPA drinkers.
Kind of beer. Old Geezer Style. barley wine ABV. 10,5% OG. 1,107 Colour. reddish Bitterness. high Grains. pale barley malt Hops. Whitbread Golding, Target Yeast. single top fermenting strainKnown as ”mild ale” among the drinkers, ”X ale” (single ale) among the brewers and simply ”English ale” abroad, this was for many decades the most popular drink in the pubs around Britain and also imitated by brewers in other countries. It would eventually transform into the significantly different mild ale we know today, but is long extinct in its original form – until now. Together with beer historian Ron Pattinson we have, with close attention to detail, recreated Whitbread’s standard ale anno 1865; a typical 19th century London mild. Kind of beer.
