To help you celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, Hook Norton Brewery have brewed a classic British ale.
Jubilee Ale brewed to 5.2% to reflect 1952 the year of the Queen’s accession to the Throne – is a dark ruby red beer that combines a robust pairing of traditional all English hops, delicate and smooth Goldings and floral Fuggles with two new hop varieties.
James Clarke, Managing Director commented “The recipe is based on two historic beers. Old Hooky, first brewed to celebrate Her Majesty’s Silver Jubilee in 1977; and Celebration Ale, brewed in 1999 to celebrate the Brewery’s 150th Anniversary. Taking the best of these two beers, and adding a modern twist of two new experimental hop varieties, this beer celebrates the values of tradition, respect, and innovation. One to savour.”
Jubilee Ale will be available in 500ml bottles from the brewery shop and online at www.hooky.co.uk and also in cask on the bar at the brewery and Hook Norton pubs.
