This year’s cask ale selection is bigger and better, with over 50 different beers to choose from 24 different breweries. We have hand-picked the beers to give you a fantastic selection of different styles and flavours, so go ahead and try some out for yourself.
Craft Beer is rich in flavours and if there is one thing that we have learned over the last 7 years is that everyone has their own favourites. In the beer lists below we have provided a guide to the style, abv, colour and hoppiness, but we have also left a space for you to write your own tasting notes.
Sambrook’s Cask Ales
As in previous years we are featuring our full range of products which include familiar favourites, such as Wandle, Junction & Pumphouse Pale Ale, but also a selection of seasonal cask ale and keg beer, our last ever cask of Barley Wine, now aged for 24 months and a new collaboration beer brewed by our head brewer Sean and Nic Donald from the Four Thieves brewpub in Battersea.
Our guest beers include breweries close to home and from further afield. Carefully chosen by our Sambrook’s team; we have something, we hope, for everyone.
