660: Elgoods | Saturday Night Beaver

20190731_141324The Brewery: “Elgood’s Brewery is a family business established over 200 years ago and run by the Elgood family since 1878. …Today’s Chairman is Nigel Elgood, who ran the brewery as managing director from 1968 to 2002……In that year he handed over the running of the business to the eldest of his three daughters Belinda, who continues as the managing director; while her two sisters Claire and Jennifer are directors. We are very proud of our family history and its association with Elgood’s Brewery.”

The Beer: “A pale ale, with a delicate biscuit malt”

July’s seasonable beer in their movie range from Elgood’s appealed to me because of the pump-clip…yeah I know. Anyway, it was pleasant enough, sitting by the river in Maldon in Essex on a pleasant summer’s day, but didn’t really excite. Ok though. 4.5% A.B.V.
