Hook Norton Brewery have announced that their next seasonal ale will be Mane Tail (3.7%). A pale, golden straw coloured ale with a crisp and refreshing taste, Mane Tail has been inspired by the shire horses at the brewery who still deliver beer the traditional way to the local pubs.
James Clarke, Managing Director said: “Shire Horses have been an integral part of brewery life since day one and for many, many years, were the reliable backbone of our delivery system so we wanted to brew a beer in their honour”
To celebrate the launch, Hook Norton will be at The Red Lion, Steeple Aston on Monday 8th May with a barrel of Mane Tail for sampling between 6pm – 8pm. Enjoy free samples and slices of The Red Lion’s very own handmade stone baked thin crust pizza’s with a special one being made for the occasion. The brewers will also be on hand to give the lowdown on how they created this ale and the ways and workings of the brewery and all things beer.
Mane Tail will be on the bar at the brewery, in Hook Norton pubs across Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire and will also be available to be selected for the free trade.
Available in cask for May and June only
