Hook Norton Brewery’s next seasonal ale will be Mane Tail, a pale, golden straw coloured ale with a crisp and refreshing taste.
Inspired by the shire horses at the brewery who still deliver beer the traditional way to the local pubs, the 3.7% ABV ale will be available for sampling at The Red Lion, Steeple Aston on May 8 between 6pm – 8pm.
Visitors can enjoy free samples and slices of The Red Lion’s very own handmade stone baked thin crust pizza’s with a special one being made for the occasion. The brewers will also be on hand to give the lowdown on how they created this ale and the ways and workings of the brewery and all things beer.
James Clarke, managing director at Hook Norton Brewery, said: “Shire Horses have been an integral part of brewery life since day one and for many, many years, were the reliable backbone of our delivery system so we wanted to brew a beer in their honour”.
Mane Tail will be on the bar at the brewery, in Hook Norton pubs across Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire for May and June only.
