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.

Very hazy dark pink - purple - brown beer! Good pale tan head. Light airy palate, semi dry. Creamy malt. Minerally and fairly dry. Light fruity flavour which is presumably the chequer berries. Whisper of black fruits as well - it’s all quite sublte. Frothy minerally finish. Was hoping for something a bit more special from a beer so expensive but it’s all right.
