Hopping Special

This Summer we are complimenting our usual offering of popular golden ales with this exciting amber beer.

Inspired by the legendary tales of people and places associated with beer, Hopping Special takes its name from the train service put on for hop picking families in the 19th & 20th C.

Enjoy mango and passion fruit characters in this hoppy amber ale brewed with Galaxy hops.
