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.
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.
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.
- Ale Yeast
- Malts: Crystal, Pale
- Hops: Challenger, Denall, Fuggles, Goldings, Northdown, Organic First Gold, Target
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.
Something completely different
Ride the rapids of Wild River
Riding the wave of the US craft beer movement, Wild River is an exciting take on American Pale Ale. It’s a double-hopped brew made with several Californian hops – a golden beer inspired by The Golden State.
