Vintage Ale 2000

Turning the clock back

A special brew for a special year, our commemorative 2000 Vintage Ale celebrated the new millennium in style. Relive the momentous milestone by cracking open a bottle – still great to drink all these years later.

A natural successor

The fourth in our Vintage Ale series, this millennium brew centred on an organic theme – with Champion Optic Malt and Organic Target Hops among the ingredients. In total, 85,000 bottles were produced, all individually numbered.

Brewer's Notes

The 2000 Vintage Ale enjoys a fresh hop aroma, with notes of honey and toffee. On the palate it’s slightly sweeter still, before finishing with a burnt, bitter aftertaste.

Food Pairing

The ultimate beer for a decadent dessert

Golen amber in colour with aromas and flavours of nuts, toffee, caramel and fruit (particularly orange). Its full body will match the dense texture of the pudding with the beers' sweetness complementing the toffee and the overall sweetness in the dessert.

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.
