Brewer's Reserve No.4

A journey of discovery

Brewer’s Reserve No.4 starts its story across the Channel, in the Bas region of France. It’s there that one of the finest, rarest Armagnacs, Comte de Lauvia, is made – and it’s there we travelled to bring the old Armagnac casks back to Griffin Brewery.

Kept in the dark

Back in London, the dark oak casks were filled with beautiful beer and rolled down to the cellar for a year’s maturation. With every day spent down below, the old Armagnac casks gave up more of their secrets, until the beer, infused with brandy characteristics, was ready to resurface.

Brewer's Notes

Both on the nose and the palate, Brewer’s Reserve No.4 picks out distinctive notes of vanilla, green apple and cinnamon. There’s raisin and a hint of sour cherry there too, overlaid upon a solid malt base that brings its own touch of fruit tartness and velvety alcohol warmth.

Food Pairing

Aged to perfection for pate

Dark orange in the glass with aromas of cognac, toffee and vanilla. The vanilla is joined on the palate by apple, pear and gives an initially sweet then dry, bitter finish. The sweetness will meld perfectly with the pate and complement it. The prickly carbonation will cut through the richness and cleanse the palate.

Something similar

Brewed with spirit

Over a late night dram one winter evening, Fuller’s Head Brewer, John Keeling, and a certain Master Distiller pondered a new concept in beer. A strong ale with the characteristics of a spirit. Some four years and several whisky casks later, Brewer’s Reserve No.1 was born.

Something completely different

Find a new Frontier

Bold, refreshing citrus notes from three varieties of new world hops. Brewed with decades of know-how to satisfy your thirst for discovery. This is lager. This is Frontier.
