About St. Botolph's Town

This Yorkshire-inspired beer is a big malty brown ale fermented in open squares with Yorkshire malts and eclectic yeast strains. In the Yorkshire tradition, SBT is fermented in open squares, with two yeast strains for a unique rustic finish. But it's in the yeast strains where this beer really departs from the typical: one is a German ale strain, the other is a common Belgian strain. Why? Because it's about the flavour, not just ticking the "style" boxes. In the end we have an ale of 5.7% abv with a big malty, almost smokey Black Malt character, a bitter attack from First Gold hops, a rich barleymalt finish and an old ale tartness around the edges. We've even timed its tan head, standing proud for ten minutes! The name "Saint Botolph's Town" is in tribute to our great home in America: Boston. The original Boston in Lincolnshire, England is an abbreviation of "Botolph's Town" or "Botolph's Stone".
