Seasonal ales

Alongside our core range of beers, we also offer a selection of seasonal ales ,throughout the year. Some are topical and relate to key events like Christmas or Halloween, others are designed to fit with sporting themes to help you make the most of an event. Here’s a selection...

Platform 6.1 4.4% ABV

It all began in 1860 in the village of Wickwar, surrounded by the rolling Wessex countryside, inspired by the purity of the Cotswold water. A brewery that has gone from strength to strength. Each of Wickwar’s ales has its own story to tell. Platform 6.1 is inspired by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Legend has it he built a secret platform at Bristol Temple Meads station; a high speed link directly to the Wickwar brewery, the fastest way of reaching his favourite beer. We don’t know the truth, but we do know that fables should be told over a pint.
