Here at the Duke Inn we have four regular ales that you can find all year around and with each one being so unique from one another it’s easy for anyone who walks through our door to find an Ale that suits them. If unsure on which Ale to have then our bar staff are more than happy for you to have a small taster of one. Otherwise why not try our guest Ale which changes on a weekly basis so that we can always offer up something new for you to try. Our Cask Ales are all kept at the perfect temperature and managed daily with the pipes being thoroughly cleaned each week without fail. Each one of our Ales are cask marque approved and taste approved by Kelly & Mike themselves.
Wye Valley HPA
A delightful straw-coloured ale with a wonderful citrus hop aroma. Truly distinctive.
HPA is a truly delightful pale ale. It’s smooth on the palate, and boasts a citrus hop aroma leading to a balanced bitter finish. Locally grown Target and Celeia hops play an important part in making this such a distinctive beer. With Maris Otter pale malt and malted wheat also being used, this is very much a pale ale with all the right ingredients.
The Rev James Original
Based on a recipe from 1885 The Rev. James Original is rich and well-balanced with a mellow malty flavour that unexpectedly gives way to a clean, refreshing finish. Brewed using exclusive Buckleys’ yeast this award winning ale will save your soul and satisfy your thirst.
Part of the Greene King Brewery, the Abbot Ale is a strong favourite with its masses of fruit flavour, malty richness and balanced hops. Its strong ruby red colour makes it easy to spot within our bar and at a ABV 5% is popular for those who are looking for an Ale with a strong and distinctive taste.
61 Deep. Newest brew on the Burton block. 61 metres. That’s the depth of the well at the Brewery that gives this refreshing pale ale its name. The five American and Australian hops give it its fresh, zesty aroma, whilst the tropical fruit and citrus notes make it extremely drinkable. Dive in.
