Cask: Regular house ale for Nicholson’s.
We’re both excited and overjoyed to announce that all Nicholson’s pubs are now proudly serving Nicholson’s Pale Ale, brewed exclusively by St. Austell just for us.
Beautifully crafted by world renowned master brewer Roger Ryman, this is a classic cask conditioned English Pale Ale (4% ABV), and represents both companies’ passion and drive in delivering quality ale which can be enjoyed in the typical British pub atmosphere that Nicholson’s offers.
