572: Weetwood Ales | Cheshire Plain

The Brewery: “Weetwood Ales began brewing in 1992 when finding a great pint of cask ale was a challenge. The brewery was founded by Adrian Slater, a skilled brewer, and Roger Langford, a farmer with space in a barn and a love for proper beer. Roger’s farm is in Weetwood Common, near Tarporley in Cheshire and the brewery took the name”

The Beer: “A clever blend of wheat, barley and oats creates the wonderful colour and character of this smooth and creamy porter which has an inviting roasted aroma”

A very welcome gift from a friend who wanted me to try something from their local area. What a cracking beer too – I do enjoy a Porter every now and again but sometimes they can be a little dry and ‘dusty’. This wasn’t, it was delicious. I hope I come across some more from Weetwood soon. 4.4% A.B.V. March 2019.
