Welbeck Abbey Brewery

Although the summer holidays have only just ended, we feel like autumn is well and truly here, and we’ve brewed some fantastic beers that this month that will help get you stoked for the season.

Firstly we introduce our George & The Dragon. This South Pacific hopped ale is fiery red colour and full of vibrantly juicy hop-resin flavours from Rakau hops, which leave a full and fruity bitter aftertaste.  With a comfortable 4.2% ABV it’s a great choice for a brisk autumnal evening.

Next we’ve got Duck Decoy, a spectacular beer filled with the mouth-wateringly fresh aromas of pear, orange and passion fruit. This is a 4.2% beer making it a pleasantly light indulgence.

Finally for our Brewers Choice range we have Claire’s High Koality.  Designed by our brewery founder, this is what Claire has coined a ‘dangerous IPA’.  Fruity, refreshing, and devilishly strong.  She adores the slightly apricot flavours the ‘Summer’ hop from Australia brings, and has used them to infuse this 5% IPA with lashings of seasonally fruity notes.

Also, don’t forget to visit our amazing micropub Portland House if you are out and about on Ecclesall Road.  They are now serving light lunches as well as some amazing handmade milkshakes and hardshakes (yup, that’s milkshakes with booze!). Hope to see you there!
