COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In ancient times Chequers berries were used to flavour ale, which is thought to be the origin of the Chequers as a pub name.
Local Chequers berries from Brampton wood, spelt wheat and autumn honey give this beer its autumn red colour and smooth, rich, fruity flavour. Enjoy a taste of Chequers Past Exclusively available at the Chequers for 9.50 a bottle, whilst stock last.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Bottle at The Chequers, Little Gransden, Cambridgeshire, home of the Son of Sid Brewery, enjoyed in front of a roaring fire in the company of Fin, Loz and Isobel. Dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is sweet dark fruit: ripe plum, black cherry or Ribena. Dry taste full of vague hints of half remembered flavours: wood bark, spruce, match head, leather and autumn bonfire. Complex and fascinating beer, rooted deep in the fabric of rural England.
