HOBSONS Old Prickly

Old Prickly has been brewed to celebrate and support the work of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society based seven miles up the road from the brewery. We have pledged to donate 5p from every pint and bottle sold to the charity. To date we have raised a staggering £39,560.13!

The snuffly hedge grog is a pale ale full of hop flavour and brewed with Columbus and Lubelski hops to give this beer a complex flavour of floral and citrus notes. Locally sourced Maris Otter malting barley is used to brew this beer which has become a firm favourite and permanent beer.

Bottle Notes - Old Prickly is a bottle conditioned beer which contains sediment, pour carefully and best stored upright at cellar temperature 10 - 12 degrees.
