New Ales from Orkney Brewery
Look out for our newest addition to the Orkney Brewery range. 1878 - the year the original school house, which houses the Orkney Brewery, was built - is a full bodied auburn beer with big fruit and spice hop aromas.
Head Brewer Andrew says this is nicely balanced by a soft sweet malt background. It is a 5.5% Ale made from malted rye and USA hops.
NORSEMAN PALE ALE
New to the bottled range and launched in time for Shetland's Up Helly Aa, Norseman is a strong and lively pale ale at 4.4% abv.
Currently only available in Orkney and Shetland but casks being brought out nationally in the spring time.
