Formerly brewed at Thomas Hardy Burtonwood
Witney, England
Style: English Strong Ale | Ratings: 21 | Alcohol: 5.2%
Cask; Regular. Also available in sterile bottled form at 5.5%.
Contract brewed at Burtonwood for Refresh UK.
Originally brewed by Gibbs Mew, the Salisbury brewery, in the 1960ís at a strength of 6.5% to commemorate the inauguration of George Reindorp as Bishop of Salisbury. However, after the brand came into the ownership of Ushers (which was itself acquired by Refresh UK) the recipe was changed significantly and the ABV was reduced. Subsequently, the brand was acquired by Wadworths, who reverted to the original 1960ís recipe.
