By Brewery Bird
With the anticipated British weather for, lets face it, the biggest event this country has seen in a while, set for “a jolly good soaking”, Brewery Bird has gemmed up on just a few of the Olympic ales which will be adorning local hand-pumps shortly. There’s definitely no place better than the pub to raise a glass to our fantastically talented Olympians!
Ramsbury Brewery Flaming Olympics 4.2% – Ramsbury
A light golden ale, hoppy, full of flavour with a satisfyingly bitter-sweet finish. Available in cask in pubs around Wiltshire now!
Downton Brewery Olympic Flames 4.5% – Downton
Brewed for this summer Olympic games, this easy drinking, clean tasting beer has hints of lemon, lime and ginger. Available in cask!
Butcombe Brewery Going For Gold 4.4%
Rather than go for a completely new beer, Butcombe have decided to adapt the already popular Butcombe Gold 4.4%, making it lighter in colour as well as adding American hops, in time for the Games. Available in cask!
Arbor Brewery 2012 Double Black IPA 7.5% - Bristol
Another adventurous brew from the boys at Arbor! Extremely hoppy (Bravo, Zeus, followed by late additions of Galena and Summit), this Black IPA is as full flavoured as they come, with bags of roasted coffee bitterness. Available in bottled, limited cask!
Olympic Ale 4.6%– Hook Norton
This golden brown beer is a winner in every discipline: dry and yet succulent, bitter yet sweet, full-bodied and yet a session beer. Available in cask!
