Diamond Ale


The oldest recipe we brew today, a light amber harvest ale brought back to life from Phipps’ 19th century, leather bound brewer’s books. A cunning combination of Kent hops rule the taste buds over Maris Otter, Pale Ale and Crystal malts. At 1036 OG this brew comes from the top end of a range of beers designed for thirst quenching following a hard days work in field or factory.

Diamond Ales were Pickering Phipps’ original bright and sparkling beers which were developed in the early 1860’s as the craze for Burton style bitters swept away dark, heavy porters, a link with the company’s roots in rural Towcester.
