Theakston Brewery, a name synonymous with British brewing heritage, proudly presents Old Peculier, an ale that stands as a beacon of their brewing excellence. Nestled in the heart of Masham, Yorkshire, Theakston has been crafting beers since the early 19th century, and Old Peculier is perhaps their most iconic creation.

The foundation of Old Peculier is its meticulous selection of ingredients. A blend of pale, crystal, and roasted barley imparts a rich maltiness, while the combination of two bitter hops and the aromatic Fuggle hop adds depth and character. This ale is further distinguished by its fermentation process, using the renowned Theakston twin strain yeast, which lends strength and added complexity.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: A captivating dark ruby, almost reminiscent of a gemstone, with a steady, creamy head.
  • Aroma: The first whiff brings forward a medley of cherry and rich fruit, complemented by subtle banana undertones.
  • Flavour: A harmonious blend of cherry, rich fruit overtones, and a hint of banana, all balanced by the malt's sweetness and the hops' gentle bitterness.
  • Mouthfeel: Smooth and full-bodied, it envelops the palate with its richness, leaving a lasting impression.

The history of Old Peculier is as rich as the ale itself. The name pays homage to the unique ecclesiastical status of Masham as a 'Court of the Peculier'. Over the years, it has garnered a reputation that has transcended borders, making it one of Britain's most well-known and loved ales. Its legacy is further enriched by tales and folklore, with some affectionately dubbing it Yorkshire’s ‘Lunatic’s Broth’.

Pairing Old Peculier with food is a delight. Its robust character complements hearty dishes like stews, roasted meats, and even some spicy cuisines. For those with a penchant for desserts, pairing it with dark chocolate or fruit pies can be a revelation.

In conclusion, Theakston's Old Peculier is not just an ale; it's a journey through time, tradition, and taste.
