ETALE – DARK BITTER – 4.0% abv.

WINNER – Best Beer (up to 4%) – Bradford CAMRA – Bradford Beer Festival 2020.

Originally made as an exclusive house ale made for our local pub, The Black Bull in Etal, on the very same Ford & Etal Estate that is home to our brewery. The Black Bull is the only thatched pub in Northumberland and situated just down the road from Etal Castle that played an important role in the Battle of Flodden Field, after which one of our popular pales, Flodden Thirst is named..

The pubs ethos, a focus on local produce and supporting the local community echoes that of our own, so it is great that we have been able to collaborate with them on this brew.

This dark bitter is now on general release as ETale.


Triple hopped dark bitter, predominantly featuring traditional Fuggles Hop to balance a rich blend of malts. Bready and caramel malt flavours combine with spicy & floral hops.


Cascade / First Gold / Fuggles


Wheat / Oats / Rye Malt

Available in:
