You don’t often see Moor beers outside of Somerset, sales are oversubscribed for good reason. With an artillery of seven permanent beers, all of which most breweries would give their right arms for, January 2011 marks the time for the Moor Beer brewery to upscale its production.
Two of their stronger permanent beers, the fresh fruity ‘JJJ IPA’ (9.5%) and the deeply wintry ‘Old Freddy Walker’ (7.3%) are truly superb, complex, rich, and mask their alcohol content well. Their lower ABV beers like their 4% pale ale ‘Revival’ and their 4.5% Best Bitter ‘Merlin’s Magic’ have flavours that punch well above their weights. We’re delighted to have a limited quantity of their bottle conditioned beers to brighten up January, as special guest beers in addition to our 40-strong seasonal beer menu.
We also think it’s great to see the ‘oversize’ 660ml bottles as us Brits take another step (albeit a small one) closer to sharing together! Justin Hawke’s beers all demonstrate the big and fresh flavours evident in so many of America’s best beers. He’s also a fine example of the endearing modesty that prevails throughout the best brewers. We wish him and his team all the best for their move and look forward to sharing moor of their beers with you soon.
