As well as our Wildlife ‘Natural’ Selection, available on a monthly basis, we also brew occasional ales for special occasions or key sporting events, details of which can be seen below…
|MIDNIGHT OWL (5.5%) – A winter warmer (Available October-March)A rich, warming winter ale with a distinctive hop and caramel finish.|
|HEMLOCK BITTER (4.0% ABV) – Our Spring favourite (Available May-July)A mid-strength, full-flavoured bitter with fruity notes on the palate and a smack of hops in the finish.|
|SNOWHITE (4.2% ABV) – Our official Christmas beer (Available November-February)|
|A very pale and refreshing malt beer with a subtle but distinctive hop character.Beautifully balanced and smooth to drink, Snowhite appeals to a broad spectrum of discerning drinkers and makes an occasional appearance each year.
We could say it “dwarfs the competition”, but perhaps we’d better not!
|NOTTINGHAM GOLD (3.5% ABV)|
|‘We’re setting the Gold Standard’A golden beer with distinct hop character derived from 100% goldings hops. A fairly low abv makes it a great lunchtime/early doors beer. It has quickly become an established favourite in our pubs and deservedly so!
The author – also a big fan of our multi-award-winning Harvest Pale – has included our 3.5% abv ‘quaffing bitter’ in a choice selection of some of the world’s finest beers.
Watch this space for Nottingham Gold availability!
|WALRUS (4.0% ABV)|
|Our Movember beer…
Castle Rock Brewery brewed a beer EXCLUSIVE to Movember (the fundraising month of November in aid of men’s health charities), named ”Walrus”.
It was a 4% amber beer with a gentle bitterness, which gives way to a long zesty finish. We donated 20p for EVERY pint of Walrus to appropriate Men’s health charities.
We are delighted to announce that Castle Rock Brewery as a whole managed to raise a massive £2252.50
|BOUNCING BOMB (4.4% ABV)|
|Commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Dambuster Raids.Available in May 2013, Bouncing Bomb is a golden beer with spicy cedar notes from the German hops.
This is another one off brew – so give it a try while you can!
