Butcombe – Union

WP_20170211_19_19_43_ProWhat they say: “They called the winter of ‘78 ‘the winter of discontent’. Widespread strikes across the public sector brought the country to a standstill as workers fought for their rights. To mark this tumultuous period of British history, we’ve created a beer for the people…..fruity, smooth and packed with Super Pride hops, this beer is strikingly good and very sessionable. This Pacific Ale keeps the bitterness low and lets the aromatics shine through with every single sip.”

From their ‘78 range – the year Butcombe began brewing. Strong stuff but I didn’t find it too hoppy. The first new beer on our stay in Bristol. 4.8% A.B.V.
