Charity beer back on the bar
Login here to listen to the audio description
Timothy Taylor’s Havercake (4.7 per cent) is back in cask for the rest of 2023.
The beer was originally brewed to honour the soldiers of the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment, affectionately nicknamed Havercake Lads.
The name is derived from the oatmeal bread cake that was the staple food of the Yorkshire Pennine towns and villages where most of the soldiers lived.
The beer has been created using a mixture of amber and oat malts. This delivers a full-bodied, moreish ale with a creamy head and slight sweetness. Fuggles and Goldings are in the hop mix.
Every pint of the cask version sold will see 10p donated to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity – the Army’s national charity – which supports soldiers, past and present, and their families for life.
A 500ml bottled version will be available soon from Timothy Taylor’s webshop.
