The brewery: "The Alnwick Brewery Company Limited initially started to brew beer in Alnwick from around 1750’s from a site in the town’s Dispensary Street. Sadly, in the 1960’s the buildings were pulled down before they could be listed, and the brewery temporarily closed only to be relaunched again in 2005 by the son of the original brewery’s last managing director. In 2013 the business was acquired by the Harry Hotspur group who also merged into it the significant brewing skills and brewery of another local brewer (namely the former VIP Brewery at Hawkhill)."
The beer: "A traditional stout brewed at 4.5% with black malt rather than roasted barley!"
The first of a few from the Alnwick brewery and it was delicious but then I do love a good stout. Really tasty.
