Serpent (2016) – Thornbridge, Brooklyn, Olivers Cider

£19.25 Inc Vat.

*BBD 2020

I’ve placed the BBD in bold above to be clear from the outset. I’ve been ageing beers for several years now and have had this one cellared until now. Like all beer ageing, it’s a bit of a lottery, but I’m hoping things like this will pique your interest enough to try them.

Serpent is a collaborative beer brewed by Thornbridge Brewery and Brooklyn Brewery.

The breweries went to Oliver’s Cider in Hereford, seeking their lees, the natural wile yeasts that ferment their apples into traditional ciders. A robust, Belgian inspired golden ale was brewed at Thornbridge with the lees added in barrels before the beer was aged for more than a year. Bottle conditioned, Serpent emerges as a dry, tart, firm and funky ale. A full expression of the friendship between Thornbridge Brewery and Brooklyn Brewery, great British brewing, American boldness and Herefordshire countryside.
