News : New Cask Beer - Hoppy Red

The second in our new programme of special brews is out and drinking. The 4.8% red-coloured beer is generously hopped with Cascade, Citra and Simcoe hops. It is a pilot brew, leading to a special hoppy red ale commissioned by JD Wetherspoon for their national Spring Beer Festival. The first one-off special, Green Gold, was released in November and took its name from the Slovenian Valley where all the hops grow.
