Brewing commenced earlier today. The beer is being brewed to a recipe created by champion beermaker Richard Baldwin. It is a traditional bitter, made with pale, crystal and dark Maris Otter malted barley, and East Kent Goldings hops to give it a distinctive East Kent flavour, to a target strength of 3.8% ABV. Queen Ethelburga’s Ale will be available throughout the Lyminge Anglo-Saxon Festival only at the Coach and Horses, Lyminge, with the first pint being poured on Friday 18 June.
Two festival events will also be serving Queen Ethelburga’s Ale from the cask. Make sure you book your tickets to the Medieval Banquet on 25 June and to the concert by Cantores Dominicae, a festival fringe event on 16 July. Both these events will be in Lyminge Village Hall. See the forthcoming June issue of the Lyminge Newsletter for more details.
We also have limited quantities of Queen Ethelburga’s Ale available in bottle. This is available by the case, at the price of £33 per case of 12 500ml bottles. Most of the brew allocated for bottling has already been pre-ordered but we still have a few cases available to reserve. If you are interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order.
