Congratulations to 3 Brewers of St Albans who have scooped Silver in the Strong Bitter category of the East Anglian leg of CAMRA’s Champion Beer of Britain competition with their excellent Special English Ale. Launched in 2013 at Symonds Hyde Farm, east of St Albans, the brewery have gained a sound reputation for their popular and consistent beers – rewarded with a number of awards. Special English Ale is an ABV 4.8%, deep, copper-coloured, robust and full-bodied premium ale. Smooth and moreish, come along to the Six Bells and sample this excellent beer.
The Six Bells is a former winner of the South Hertfordshire Branch Pub of the Year competition (2009) and has featured consistently in the top three of the competition ever since – and is a recent ever-present in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide. The characterful pub lies in Roman Verulamium in the attractive St Michaels quarter of St Albans. With exposed timber beams, an open inglenook fire and great range of well kept cask-conditioned beers – including one from a Hertfordshire Brewer – the Six Bells offers home-cooked food lunchtimes and evenings.
Two awards in one night. We hope to see you there!
