English Pale Ale

Thank-you for your interest in Brewery 288.

Today's pale ales have been hijacked by a marketing campaign called 'craft ale' are very often hop-laden re-creations of Indian Pale Ale of one type or another..Double Dry Hopped IPA, New England IPA, Double IPA etc.and our brewing mentor says that this has become an arms race for hop loading and is very trendy and driven by the Americans.

At Brewery 288 we believe that a clean, fresh and hoppy pale ale is most certainly just the thing. BUT, we have tested trend -ve for over-hopped pale ales.

Brewery 288 English Pale Ale has been developed with ENGLISH HOPS ONLY to ensure minimum food miles and maximum enjoyment. We think you will enjoy 1, and probably another which is frequently not the case with the c-word ales.

Drinking tip: CONSUME SWIFTLY and keep your beers in the fridge to preserve freshness and keep out light, just remove half hour or so prior to drinking to get to perfect guzzling temperature.

Our brewer is a Chemical Engineer and his mission is to ensure your continued drinking pleasure. All Brewery 288 beer is always being refined and produced to the best possible standards.

Brewery 288 does not pasteurise or sterilise our beer, we do not employ in-line adjustments for ABV or colour or bitterness like many of the big breweries because we believe traditional ale is real ale made with patience, care, love and full respect for the beer, its drinkers and the environment. Expect sediment; pour carefully to avoid but it is most certainly harmless to consume.

All our ales are hand made in our own brewery using British equipment and British suppliers and packaging for your drinking enjoyment.
