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: “A robust dark stout full of roast barley chocolate and coffee flavours & aromas“
My second from Spitting Feathers and undoubtedly my favourite of the two – but then I love a dark beer.
