Conger Tun Ale is derived from the Ancient Rebus on the Town of Congleton's Coat of Arms "Conger-Leo-Tun". This Scottish Style Wee Heavy style beer is similar in style to the beers drank when the ale-taster helped sell the town bible to buy a bear.
This expression of Conger Tun Ale was brewed in November 2016, the resulting 1000ltrs was then barrel-aged in five oak casks for 12 months and blended back, aged for a further month, then bottled in December 2017 to give this sumptuously complex malt forward delight.
Each of the five oak casks impress their unique signature making barrel-aged Conger Tun Ale a fine example of excellence in wood ageing. To believe it you have to try it, this is a must for any wood-aged beer fan.
The five oak Casks were specially selected for us by Alastair Simms, Master cooper of The White Rose Cooperage nr. Wetherby Yorkshire.
