Our Beer

Here at Cat Asylum we are plundering the archives to achieve something unique – a voyage into the great tastes formulated by the master brewers of the past. Every beer is something newly recreated, another chance to discover what history tasted like.

IPA

IPA

A 1910 India Pale Ale

ABV 6.1%

Warwick and Richardson’s pre war version of Burton IPA, with maize and oats included in the grain bill and and dry hopped with Goldings to give it the hop aroma of that time.

HB

HB

A Newark Brown Ale

ABV 6%

The first beer brewed from the archive of Warwick and Richardson’s Newark Brewery. This is a 1910 brown ale, brewed at the time to replicate the beer that people remembered being made in their local, village pub. Hence HB = Home Brewed.

LBB

LBB

A 1911 Light Pale

ABV 4.7%

Another recipe from the 1910 archive. This was Warwick’s light pale ale from before the Great War, hopped with Fuggles and Goulding’s.
