Our search for a session beer continued! Due to the failure -The barman recommended Salopian Golden Thread (5.9% abv)- which is a straw coloured bitter. Golden Thread is the Salopian breweries oldest beer (well its 12 since they only opened in 1996) which is way before the recent trend of golden ales. This beer was insanely easy to drink and had a dry hoppy flavour. A session on this would have turned ugly! Our quest for a session beer continued!
The brewery has had to increase capacity twice to keep up with demand, with production now topping 80 barrels a week.
