Tribute 4.2% abv

tribute

For foodies, Tribute is a perfect accompaniment to chicken, gammon or fish. The ideal alternative to a fine white wine.

Roger Protz, Editor Good Beer Guide, wrote: “Tribute is a magnificent example of a bronze coloured English bitter, with a rich aroma of biscuity malt and tart citrus fruit from the Willamette hops. Juicy malt, hop resins and tangy fruit coat the tongue, while the finish is long and lingering, with a fine balance between malt, hops and fruit, finally becoming dry and bitter.”

Trelawny 3.8% abv

trelawny

A unique blend of traditional English Golding, and specially imported Galaxy hops from distant South Australia harmonise to give this beer a distinctive character of the old, and the new world. Peach and apricot notes dominate the aroma, with hints of butterscotch and toffee apple.

The taste is full, with toasted biscuit and jam being balanced by the mellow, yet assertive bitterness of tangy hops.

HSD 5.0% abv

When looking for a beer to accompany a meal, HSD is the real ale alternative to a well rounded premium red wine and simply superb with steaks and other red meat dishes.

Korev 4.8% abv

korev

It’s taken us nearly 160 years to create the perfect lager, and we wanted to make sure it was uniquely Cornish. Crafted at our brewery in St Austell, we’ve used the finest lager malt from barley grown right here in Cornwall.

Korev has a wonderful pale colour and a clean, crisp taste, bottled in amber glass to protect the freshness. We think you’ll agree it’s been worth the wait.

Cornish Rattler Cyder 6% abv
