Samuel Smith Fruit Ale, Fruit, Organic, Strawberry

Ale brewed with strawberry juice. Natural flavors added. Handcrafted. USDA organic. Brewed at Melbourn Bros. ancient brewery in Stamford, Lincolnshire and blended and bottled at Samuel Smith's Brewery, Tadcaster, North Yorkshire. USDA organic. Handcrafted at Melbourn Bros. tiny brewery set in a time warp in Stamford using the old manually operated brewing equipment. Finest organically grown barley and wheat are used to create a complex ale which, having undergone primary and secondary fermentation with different yeasts and extended maturation, is taken to Samuel Smith's small, independent British brewery at Tadcaster. There it is blended with pure organic cherry fruit juice and a previously cellared organic brew - creating an unparalleled fruit ale. The smooth distinctive character of the matured ale serves as the perfect counterpoint to the pure organic fruit juice. Soil association organic standard. Melbourn's mash tun, its rakes driven by the old steam engine, was built in 1876 & is used to make this fruit ale. Certified organic by Soil. Assn. Certification Ltd. Product of England.
