Batemans Vintage Ale

ABV 7.5%
Case containing 8 x 500ml bottles

Brewed from an old family barley wine recipe, the ideal gift for someone who is enthusiastic about great craft beer. 

Tasting Notes 

A special limited-edition beer based on a 40-year-old barley wine we discovered in the Brewery cellars. The bottles – which were actually the last ever batch of Batemans BBB – had been ‘laid down’ in the late 1970s by George Bateman, to be enjoyed in April 1981 to celebrate Stuart Bateman’s 21st birthday. But they were forgotten about!

The recipe is a blend of malts from Flagon and Tipple barleys and single variety Worcester Golding hops. Having matured in oak, the beer tastes of plums, port, malt, brandy, vanilla and almonds. An ale to be celebrated.

NB: This beer may contain a sediment, so should be stood upright, allowed to settle, and poured carefully.
