A full-bodied and full-flavoured IPA – in the West Coast style. Assertive but balanced hop bitterness complements the malt backbone. Aromas are forthright, coming from the big dry-hopping with Columbus, Ahtanum, Azacca and Ekuanot. 3rd Place – Alpha King Challenge, Europe 2021
Theakston Old Peculier
Abv reduced from 5.7 to 5.6 in 2010. “The Legend”.
Brewed using a generous blend of finest pale, crystal and roasted barley malts, along with the majestic Fuggle hop, to create a wonderful, full-bodied flavour with subtle banana, cherry and rich fruit overtones. A peculier tale: Theakston’s most famous ale takes its name from the seal of the Peculier Court of Masham, which was granted back in the 12th century. It was the custom at the time for the church to administer the law, but this proved too arduous a task for the then Archbishop, who was based in York. So, with due archiepiscopal aplomb, he set up the independent Peculier Court, headed up by the Peculier of Masham.
