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.
Brewed by the Charles Wells brewery our Young’s Bitter is a pale ale that comes with a dry bitter taste and a Fruit Citrus aroma that is light on the tongue and will leave you with a long lasting bitter finish. At a ABV of 3.7% Young’s Bitter works well as a session beer and is perfect for when catching up with mates during the week.
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.
Deuchars is our resident IPA and comes from the Caledonian brewery. Rich in character and a taste that is long and refreshing with its strong aromatics yet subtle citrus flavours. Solid gold in colour and at a ABV of 3.8% this Indian Pale Ale is also ideal for session drinking with mates.
