Ye Olde English Ale

As far back as 55 BC, Northern Europeans were enjoying ale as an integral part of their diet, and as a significant source of commerce. When hops were introduced in the 15th century, the hopped ale was called beer. The popularity of beer
continued to increase, and beer became a mainstay of the European’s diet
and economy.

Today, traditional English Ales are enjoyed around the world.  The three yeast strains we are offering this quarter are
particularly suited for the production of cask conditioned beers, which are the crown jewels of traditional English Ales.

Wyeast 1026 PC British Cask Ale produces a nice malt profile and finishes crisp and slightly tart. Wyeast 1469 PC West Yorkshire Ale has a full, chewy malt character with a dry and balanced finish. Wyeast 1768 PC English Special Bitter exhibits a mild malt profile with a neutral finish.
