Launching our Signature Series

Launching our Signature Series

We are embarking on a new series of beers that we are so proud of we are putting our names to them! Introducing Abbeydale Signature Series, you will see these released every 6-8 weeks and will bear the name of the person behind the beer! 


First up is the exception to the rule, due to the fact that Rebecca doesn’t actually work at the brewery! However, she was the lucky bidder at our Charity auction held earlier in 2015 in aid of Cavendish Cancer Care.  Rebecca spent a good few hours in the Devonshire Cat with our brewers ‘researching’ (i.e. tasting!) lots of different beer styles to come up with an idea of the beer she wanted to create. 


A strong Belgian style blonde ale was the decision and so Bex’ was born! Made with a bottom fermenting Belgian yeast strain, this powerful golden blonde ale certainly packs a punch. Flavours of banana and cloves from the yeast mix with tropical fruit from the trio of Czech, US and UK hops.


The rest of the series will feature recipes from the brewers and other hugely knowledgable folks around the brewery and our pubs! At this point we have no idea what they will come up with! Weird and wonderful? Classics done even better? Whichever way they go, we will be putting our signature on the clip, so you will know it’s worth drinking!
