Stroud Brewery adds a new bronze ale to their growing organic line

Organic real ale producer, Stroud Brewery, has re-released their peppercorn bitter, Teasel, as a limited seasonal ale.


Teasel, with a 4.2%ABV, has also had its recipe slightly tweaked with an increasing quantity of peppercorn added taking it from a best bitter to a specialty beer as a peppercorn bitter.


Packing a mighty punch from the organic Motueka and Simcoe hops alongside the aromatic organic black peppercorns. It will also be the first seasonal ale the brewery has bottle conditioned in a move to increase the range in to this superior format.


Greg Pilley, Owner and Managing Director of Stroud Brewery comments, “Teasel is a peppercorn bitter with a fruity malt flavour and dry black pepper on the finish. It is a great beer to pair with food – particularly alongside meaty game dishes or a roast lamb dinner. The name Teasel comes from the Stroud woollen industry where Teasels were used to raise the nap of the cloth.”


He continues “We want to be recognised as a leading organic brewery. Despite the highly competitive market of craft beers, steady, sustainable growth is our aim. By ensuring consistent quality, championing the independent retailers and maintaining a premium for our products is how we have achieved this so far. Also, we are increasing our bottle conditioned range, which is all part of the progress.”


The re-vamp of this specialty beer will only be available in spring rolling out this month.
