Please see our first five announced ales below:

From Windsor and Eton Brewery:

Harry & Meghan’s Windsor Knot 4% - Using a special blend of British hops called Invicta in recognition of Prince Harry’s role in creating the Invictus Games, combined with some great American West Coast hops. As with all our beers, we use barley grown locally on the Royal Farms right here in Windsor and as a finishing touch we are using champagne yeast. Marrying these ingredients creates a new Pale Ale that is young, fresh and full of character.

Kohinoor IPA 4.5% – This Indies Pale Ale is based on an IPA recipe with Imperial malt and a blend of Chinook, Simcoe and Pacific Jade hops. The refreshing twist comes from the addition of Cardamom, Coriander and Jasmine petals.

From Marstons Brewery:

Bombardier 4.1% - The beer of England - light, refreshing pale gold beer. Hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit and honey, balanced out by a gentle sweet maltiness and dry finish to give a fantastically moreish beer.

Hobgoblin 5.2% - Hand crafted from roasted chocolate and crystal malts, with a timely infusion of fuggles, sovereign, styrian and cascade hops to produce an indulgently rich, full, smooth beer of exceptional quality and character. A full, rich, sublimely fruity & satisfying indulgent beer.

From Ringwood Brewery:

Ringwood Razorback 3.6% - Tempting hop aroma with fruit notes. Good malt feel in the mouth dry, tangy fruit finish. Delicious, easy drinking slightly tart pale bitter.
