Black Sheep - Holy Grail
Golden & Fruity
This brilliant and bold addition to our flock was created to commemorate the 30th anniversary of one of our finest comedic exports - the Monty Python crew!
Years later and Holy Grail is still going strong. With more hops than a killer rabbit, it's a full-flavoured golden ale with a distinctively fruity flavour followed by the Black Sheep signature dry finish. Be warned, this beer has been tempered over burning witches! Only joking.
This premium cask ale has a strong following throughout the country. Courage Directors was originally brewed exclusively for the Directors of the Alton brewery, but following public demand, the beer was made available to the public.
It is genuine premium beer, pale brown in appearance with a deep rich taste.
Water is the most important ingredient in beer - and Wells Eagle has an enviable advantage over other beers because it is brewed with pure, natural mineral water from the brewery's very own well.
In addition to this, Wells Eagle uses 100% farm assured barley and has received the coveted 'Red Tractor' mark of accreditation.
Youngs London Gold
Young’s London Gold is key member of the Young’s range. As the name suggests it’s a golden beer with a refreshing taste.
London Gold is available as a cask beer and also as a bottle conditioned beer.
The bottled conditioned variant is an unpasteurised, living beer, matured in the bottle for a fuller, more complex, multi-dimensional, fresher taste. With no artificial carbonation, the only fizz is the natural effervescence created by fermentation.

It is brewed with 100% British ingredients as has the Red Tractor stamp of approval.
An award winner in both 2002 and 2004 at the brewing industry international Awards, Young’s Special is a cask ale with genuine credentials and one which shares in Young’s 175 years of brewing heritage and excellence.
Young’s Special is a 100% malt brew combining Maris Otter and Crystal malt with locally sourced British Fuggle and Goldings hops.
