Vale Brewery, Brill launches three new ales for April.
April 2011 looks like it will be a busy month. Easter,
St George's Day and a Royal Wedding, are all at the end of the month.
With several Bank Holiday there are also many beer festivals planned.
So to help you celebrate, Vale Brewery has created three special
The first is another of our Monthly Special beers, P & Q. Named
after the old saying "Mind Your P's and Q's", this is
reputed to have derived from a cry heard by many a Landlord in a
rowdy tavern. "Mind your Pints and Quarts". This 4.2%
beer is Golden in colour with First Gold and Brewers Gold combining
to create a subtle citrus hop aroma.
We then have St George's V-Ale. Those with good memories will recall
this was first brewed last year. It is 4.6% and a traditional English
bitter to celebrate our national day on the 23rd April. The beer
is a deep reddish brown in colour.
And then the Royal Wedding on the 29th April. This has caused a
dilemma at Vale Brewery, since this is in fact our special day -
or more precisely David Renton, our brewers, special day: His birthday.
So for general consumption we have Royal Union, a golden beer brewed
with Fuggles, Brewers Gold and Galena hops. This will create a beer
with a fruity taste and subtle blackcurrant aroma. However as a
one off at The Hop Pole in Aylesbury only, we will have a dry hopped
version of this called "Not the Royal Wedding Ale - It's David
the Brewers Birthday Ale"
The bottled beers available at the Vale Brewery shop in Brill continue
to increase. Recent additions have been beers from Oakham Ales from
Peterborough, Teignworthy from Devon and Warwickshire Brewery. Reasonably
priced this is a great location to pick up some unusual ales, not
often seen in bottle form in this area.
