Hook Norton’s Double Stout Returns To Pubs


Hook Norton’s Double Stout will return to pubs in January – it is the first beer in the firm’s 2010 Brewers Selection.

A range of 11 craft-brewed beers will be available throughout the year.

Hook Norton managing director James Clarke said Double Stout’s recipe might be a hundred years old, but its “taste and flavour is modern and fashionable”.

The stout recently won gold in the prestigious International Beer Challenge, and the 4.8% abv beer is described as a smooth, full-bodied stout with a refreshing hoppy aftertaste.

Clarke added: “Black malt enriches the colour and teases the palate with an unmistakable toast flavour.”

Double Stout is available in pubs until the end of February and in bottles all year round.

In March, Hook Norton will launch First Light, a pale, light brew with a complex hop aroma, and April sees the return of 303AD – brewed to celebrate the death of England’s St George.
