Brains The Rev James

Originally brewed by Crown Buckley as Reverand James Original Ale, the brand was kept by Brains when they aquired Crown Buckley in 1998.

The Rev. James is named after the founder of Buckley’s Brewery the Reverend James Buckley (1770 – 1839). It is brewed to a traditional recipe and has been described as having a flavour not commonly available these days. Full-bodied and warming, The Rev. James is rich in palate, spicy and aromatic with a deeply satisfying finish.

Titanic Plum Porter

Brewed with “Natural Plum Flavourings”.

This beer is dark strong and well rounded; the richness of such a rotund beer is brought to an even keel by the late addition of Goldings hops and natural plum flavouring. Take the opportunity and go for the low hanging fruit, this sumptuous beer really is a plum!

Sharps Sea Fury

Brewed at Burtonwood in Partnership with MolsonCoors

This appears to be a bottled version of Sharps Special Ale

Sea Fury Special Ale takes its inspiration from the stormy Atlantic seas that crash into the rugged Cornish coast during the long, dark winter. This exceptional beer was first brewed in 1996 to satisfy a demand from local fishermen for a stronger ale to enjoy after long and perilous stints at sea.

Moorhouse Pendle Witch

A bold, malty amber beer with spice fruit notes and crisp fruity aftertaste.

Fuller’s Golden Pride

Goldings hops and Golden Promise malt. At 8.5% ABV, Golden Pride guarantees a superb range of flavours, that is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of palates. Our brewers describe Golden Pride thus: ’ deep amber in appearance, Golden Pride is full bodied, of moderate bitterness, moderately hopped and rich in malt. Full flavoured, and reminiscent of sweet orange oil, toasted grains, and bread. Rich malty aromas lead to a similarly styled palate, with an intense finish. Sweet and bitter flavours are expressed in good balance in this weighty brew.’ Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: ’the Cognac of beers’.
