Edition 155 of The Nottingham Drinker features the story of our Green Hop Patriot from concept through to launch.

We had a fantastic day with Charles Faram at Stocks Farm selecting our endeavour hops and driving them back to the brewery quick smart to make our fantastic Best Bitter.

Out in the wild!

Our original Patriot recipe creates a smooth balance between British hops and the finest Maris Otter malt.
The introduction of green endeavour hops adds an exciting and unique freshness and crispness.
We have amped up the abv to 4.2% while introducing fresh, crisp, sappy characteristics to our beautifully mellow core ale, Patriot.
