History of the OlD Ale Style

This style of beer has evolved over time but it originated to complement and distinguish the ‘mild’ ales of England’s pubs in the 1800s.  

Young, freshly brewed ale was sold as “mild” regardless of its strength – once it had matured, and gained the characteristics of an aged beer, it was sold as “old”. In many cases Old Ales were designed to add aged character to younger ales by blending them.

 

Historique

Ce style de bière a évolué au fil du temps, mais il s'est formé afin de se distinguer en tant que complément aux ales «douces» des pubs en Angleterre dans les années 1800. Cette jeune ale fraîchement brassée était vendue comme «douce» indépendamment de sa teneur en alcool - lorsqu'elle mûrissait et acquérait les caractéristiques d'une bière vieillie, elle était vendue comme «vieillie». Dans de nombreux cas, les Old Ales étaient conçues pour ajouter un caractère vieilli à des ales plus jeunes en les mélangeant.

“The Old Ale X has a special place in my heart...

five years ago, I brewed the first homebrew batch in honour of the birth of my youngest son Alexander – hence the name Ale X. I've set aside a bottle in my cellar as a gift to him on his 18th birthday, assuming I have the willpower to keep it corked.”

The Perfect Drinking Experience

Old Ale X Glass.jpg

stay chill

After refrigerating the bottle, we recommend pouring the beer into a goblet or snifter (ideally) and letting it warm up to 8–10° celsius before drinking.  


Big abv = small serving

Our Old Ale X features an elevated ABV of 10% and is meant to be enjoyed in modest servings of about 10oz (or 30 cL). We personally enjoy it best with friends, family, and food – please enjoy responsibly.  


Food for thought

Pairing this beer with appetizers will allow the flavours to compliment each other and reduce the risk of over-consumption. We personally recommend stinky cheese or rich meat for those who love savoury tastes and figs or creme brûlée for the sweet tooths
