The brewery: “In Spring 2005 Matthew Walley cashed his pension savings (at 33, he figured he shouldn’t need them too soon), spent it all on brewing equipment and set about brewing with mate Terry Ashford without telling anyone. Even before the paperwork and personal relationships were sorted Old Wavertonian had won Beer of the Festival at CAMRA Northwich Beer Festival 2005- the first beer festival we were entered into- and we haven’t looked back since.“
The beer: “Pale malts and cutting edge hops combine to produce this moreish I.P.A.”
Procured by a friend from a local (to her) brewery. IPA is not my favourite style of beer as regulars will know but after a long drive straight after work one Friday night this went down very well indeed. Quite potent at 5.6% A.B.V.
