What are Hooky playing at doing a Lager?! Heresy some may say! We say, “We’ve always strived to give our customers the styles and types of beer they want and deserve so here it is. Craft? No, just good, honest lager, tested and tweaked for the past year until just right. A refreshingly crisp and light lager built on 6 generations of brewing heritage. Taste takes time.”
Hook Norton Brewery Managing Director James Clarke said: “We’ve come along way from just producing two traditional cask ales to a range well into double figures each year. Drinkers are demanding more variety in more formats from cask, keg, cans or bottles so a lager was something we had always wanted to brew. Ironstone has taken a year of technical and tasting development to get it where we are happy with the taste and quality. The name was the easy bit, coming from the stone our brewery was constructed from back in the 1900’s.
Ironstone Lager is available on the bar at the brewery and in local pubs as well as in 500ml bottles from the brewery shop and online here
