Top 10 St George’s Day drinks

23rd April, 2013 by Andy Young

Real ale

Craft beerAle is one of the oldest beverages produced by humans with references written in the history of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, dating back to the 5th millennium BC. England is known for top fermented cask beer, also known as cask conditioned ale, which finishes maturing in the pub cellar rather than at the brewery.

Local, regional beers have grown increasingly popular throughout England in recent times and an expansion of craft beer has seen microbreweries grow in number and popularity. English beer styles include brown ale, mild, porter or stout and bitter, which incorporates best bitter, premium bitter and India Pale Ale.

Many breweries look to cash in on the growing popularity of St George’s Day with specific brews including Davenports’ England’s Glory lager, Daleside brewery’s St George’s Ale and Wadworth’s Red, white and brew ale.
