I think Tuesdays are worse than Mondays somehow, so to help with the Tuesday Blues we have something delicious!

Timothy Taylor’s is one of the UK’s oldest family-owned breweries, with a heritage of award-winning cask ales dating back over 160 years, with their Landlord winning more awards than any other beer, including CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain and the Brewing Industry Awards Gold Medal four times. 

The company, which was founded in 1858 by Timothy Taylor in Keighley, is still in the Taylor family and is the last independent brewery of its kind in West Yorkshire.

We don’t really seem to be big fans of Bitters here in Ireland compared to our British neighbours. Maybe it’s because the term ‘Bitter’ is off-putting or perhaps it’s because we’re not a cask beer-loving people, and cask is really where this style of beer really shines! And yes, I know that’s a controversial opinion!

  • Appearance: Clear burnt orange, tight fluffy white head. 
  • Aroma: Sweet biscuity notes, floral.
