I tend to prefer a nice pale ale to a pilsner style but it was an unusually warm day and it went down very well. I would have had a second one if available. It was the winner of World Beer Awards 2012 Best European Speciality Gluten Free Beer. And on top of that it has some history as well.
St. Peter’s Brewery is located in a medieval hall in a remote and beautiful corner of Suffolk. There our beers begin their lives deep below the brewery with water drawn from a pure source – as it has been for over 700 years, essential for the full flavour and pure character of all St. Peter’s beers.
Our beautiful flask-shaped oval bottle is a faithful copy of one produced c. 1770 for Thomas Gerrard of Gibbstown, just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia. The original is now kept at St. Peter’s Hall and is a rare example of an oval Eighteenth Century beer bottle.
