A Note on This Beer
If you’re into sweet ‘n’ malty brews like Belgian Quads or Dopplebocks, or if you just love boozy beer in general, you gotta try some Old Ales.Soaking up 8.5% ABV’s worth of toasted Madagascar vanilla aromas and English tobacco flavors, Three Magnets Brewing’s Welwyn Garden Old Ale shows off this style with their quintessential GABF-winning swagger.
Referred to as a “Keeping Ale” by the brewery, Welwyn Garden began its journey back in February 2017. Resting ever since in cool, dry cellar, this Old Ale emerges perfectly ready for booze-craving palates. Dark fruit and caramel notes melded with creamy cigar spice and booze into something more like cognac than any typical brew. Perfect to enjoy now or cellar for additional flavor exploration, Welwyn Garden is a masterful throwback to one of England’s most premium beer styles.
Hundreds of years ago, brewers in merry ole’ England kept a special reserve of Old Ales for select customers. These high-proof took Ales took months of planning, patience, and fetched a premium price. While most brewers avoid Old Ales because they take so long to make, Three Magnets dove right in with Welwyn Garden.
Stealing from the rich beer history and tradition of England to give to us poor craft believers, Three Magnets has rescued the Old Ale from obscurity with Welwyn Garden. Perfect for pairing with a leather chair and reading Dickens.
Recommended serving temp 45-55 degrees F.
