This libation, which we class as a 'Cornish 'Old Ale'' (a Bitter), has a strength of 4% ABV.
Betty Stogs is an award-winning, copper-coloured bitter brewed since 1997 using - Cornish water Whole-flower Celeia, Northdown and Aurora hops Cornish malted barley and wheat A unique yeast, specialy created by Skinners.
Taste notes: Copper-coloured, with a light malty aroma, a floral, even cedar taste, and a sharp tang of bitter grapefruit, this is an ale that has the strength of character to take on tasty dishes like stews, hard cheeses and meat-packed pasties.
Inspiration: In Cornish folklore Betty Stogs was reputedly full-bodied, golden-hearted and just a little fruity. So you can see why we chose to name our award-winning, smooth-drinking amber ale after her. Especially as both Bettys are often to be found at the centre of a good party. Join us in raising a glass to Betty Stogs − truly the Queen of Cornish ales
