2008 marks Humpty Dumpty Brewery's 10th anniversary. To commemorate this milestone, we have brewed a special limited edition barleywine called simply "10".
"10" is a ruby-coloured ale with a strong hoppy bitterness to counter its 9.2% alcohol by volume. Its 62 IBUs of bitterness are provided by two additions of First Gold, Cascade and Amarillo hops. The Maris Otter pale malt is from the Branthill Farm in Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk. It has a wonderful balanced flavour that should cellar well. We think it's perfectly paired with a piece of mature cheddar, stilton or other strong flavoured cheese. It's a wonderful nightcap.
We are selling "10" in 330ml bottles through our brewery shop in Reedham as well as at our current Farmers Markets - Beccles Heliport (first Saturday of each month), and Aylsham Town Centre (third Saturday). It is also available through select retailers including the Real Ale Shop at Branthill Farm and the Little Beer Shop in Blofield. We've also made a few casks of it available to local pubs and selected beer festivals.
We're very happy to celebrate 10 years of cracking good beers in the Norfolk Broads, and very proud to bring you this special ale to mark the occasion. Don't miss it!
