Heritage Ales is a venture by Spitting Feathers with the help of brewing historian John Murray of Cestrian Brewery. Our aim is to recreate, as faithfully as possible, some of the great beers and styles of bygone ages. By scouring the archives and records offices, conducting local research and by consulting historians we hope to unearth and reproduce ancient beers and ales of historic and cultural significance.
Northgate Ale (4.9%)
Brewed to an authentic 1902 recipe from the original brewery records held by Cheshire Archives and from local studies, this one time popular Cestrian ale is back. This mid-amber beer has fruity malt flavours and a pleasant hoppy aftertaste.

Amber with caramel malt and fruit aroma. Flavours of toffee and hops overpowered by sweetness, too much for me.
