One of our most iconic beers and first brewed in 1997, our deliciously boozy (yet still very drinkable) barley wine has truly stood the test of time. Heavily hopped using a similar combination of hops to Moonshine (Willamette, Cascade and Chinook), Last Rites was originally created from the first runnings of our flagship pale ale. It's always been dry hopped too – this batch has Cascade and Mosaic added for an extra level of citrussy oomph!
Weighing in at 11% ABV, Last Rites is one of the trickiest beers in our line-up to brew, particularly during the cold winter months, so as usual we haven't made things easy for ourselves… but we simply couldn't imagine as important a milestone as our silver anniversary without it! Smooth and robust with a huge depth of flavour and a lingering finish, it's one to truly savour and a beer we're very proud of.
