692: Weetwood Ales | Mad Hatter

20210619_174801The 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: “In cask this is a great session beer, brewed with Amarillo hops from the USA to give spicy and floral character. In bottle we dial up the abv and the hops to create a punchy, robust Strong Ruby Ale.”

I was delighted to try another from the Weetwood stable after nearly two years and this did not disappoint either. I didn’t find it too floral, but glad I had the bottled version at 6% A.B.V. The cask version is brewed to 3.9% A.B.V.
