English Style Ale - Session Bitter (Cask)

Malty, Bitter, Delicate – In honour of this building’s original usage, namely as the home to London Trams that serviced the Highbury to Aldwych route as far back as 1906, we have named our house bitter Tramshed

Golden Ale - English Style Ale (Cask)

In tribute to the Gunner’s once golden boy, Ray Parlour, nicknamed ‘the Romford Pele’ by avid fans for his high-energy, mid-field solid performances, we have brewed a fantastic hoppy and dry, Golden ale. Like Ray, who was notably underestimated by Soccer AM’s Tim Lovejoy, who pre-emptively stated “Don’t’ worry, it’s only Ray Parlour”, just as he struck from 30 yards away, only to open the scoring of Arsenal’s victorious 2002 FA Cup Final against Chelsea, the wise will know to expect a fantastic dry finish from this aromatic and flavoursome, highly drinkable Golden Ale

Session IPA - IPA (Cask)

Floral, Citrusy, Hoppy – Our session IPA has so much personality we just had to name it after ‘The Goalscorer’ AKA the Pundit, TV and Radio presenter, and all-round inspiring and likeable chap, professional footballer ‘Ian Wright MBE’ – although he could have earned his Goalscorer title with any of the clubs that he played for, it was at the mighty Arsenal that his goal scoring ability truly shone, becoming the club’s top scorer for six seasons in a row and playing a major part in the FA Cup and League Cup double in 1993. He went on to partner Dennis Bergkamp as a formidable stiking duo and his time at Arsenal culminated in a truly amazing 185 goals in 279 appearances – and all of them delivered with charm and personality

Amber Ale - American Style Ale (KEG)

Our gorgeous Amber ale pays homage to Alexander Aubert, the English eminent businessman and amateur astronomer who set up one of the finest Observatories of 18th century Britain at Highbury House. Aubert’s lifelong passion was kindled from an early age when he observed the appearance of the Great Comet of 1744, and was further encouraged by witnessing the Great Meteor of 1783, which passed over Scotland and England and on to France on a passage of over 1,000 miles. With flashes of luminous red noted in the massive fireball that rumbled across the clear, August, night sky, illuminating the face of the country, followed by a questioning ‘is the world ending?’ thunderous rumbling, it surely must have been the spectacle of the century

American Pale Ale- American Style Ale (Keg)

Consider being a resident of Highbury around 1381, of course that means you are only half-way through the ‘Hundred Year’s war’ (1337 – 1453), probably lost many loved ones in the Black Death (1348 – 1350), a plague that killed half of all Londoners, ruled by a King who is a 14 year old boy (Richard II) and have been unlucky enough to be born an ‘unfree serf’, which basically meant you were tied to working for the Lord of the Manor for little or no money, forever – it’s not hard to see why imposing an additional tax, namely the ‘Poll Tax’ with severe penalties for those who could not/would not pay, led to a bit of unrest with the masses………. The Revolt of 1381 was led by the semi-legendary Jack Straw who set up his headquarters on the site of Highbury Manor.

London Lager

Crisp, Clean, Light  – In tribute to the 3rd album by the Clash, London Calling, ranked as one of the Greatest Albums of All Time (Rolling Stone Magazine 2003) was recorded in 1979 at Wessex Studios, located in a former church hall in Highbury. The studio, owned by Sir George Martin was popular and had previously been used by the likes of the Sex Pistols, Pretenders and Tom Robinson Band.

Oatmeal Stout - (KEG)

We have a lot to thank Hungarian born inventor, and Highbury resident, David Gestetner (1854 – 1939) for. Not just for his inventions such as ‘the photocopier’, ‘the ball-point pen’ and ‘nail-clippers’ – devices which have, over time, become an invaluable, intrinsic part of our modern life, and that today we take for granted, but for choosing to set up his factory in North London, employing thousands of people until as recently as the 1970s. In honour of his legacy we have brewed a chocolately, creamy Dry Stout, that once you take it, you won’t be able to do without.

Wheat Beer - Witbier (KEG)

Seasonal Beer – Spring The Granita Pact was an alleged gentlemen’s agreement made between politicians Tony Blair and Gordon Brown in the summer of 1994. Although later denied by Mr Brown, it is widely believed the two met in the Islington restaurant ‘Granita’ following the death of Labour Party leader John Smith on 12 May, and Brown agreed, in return for certain promises, that he would stand aside to allow Blair to become leader of the party, and possible future Prime Minister.

Colonia Estivo

Belgian Style Ale- Saison (KEG)

Where Highbury Manor now sits, it is thought to have once been the site of the summer camp (Colonia Estivo) for a Roman Garrison as far back as the 1st or 2nd Century. Although wine was the Legions’ preferred tipple of choice, after many disastrous attempts to introduce grape growing into the more northern parts of Europe, eventually the Romans realised that hops grow better in colder climates and after a time beer was started to be brewed, Subsequently, instead of wine, beer was drunk in Britain and extensively throughout the Roman empire. As a toast to their determination to find an alternative to wine, in their honour we have brewed a hoppy, spicy Rye Ale, which is the perfect pint to enjoy on a balmy, summer night.

Pitch Fever

Pitch Fever

IPA - Tropical IPA (KEG)

Just like Highbury resident ‘Nick Hornby’s’ best-selling semi-auto biographical novel of 1992 ‘Fever Pitch’, noted as being cheerful, poignant, popular and captivating to both female and male audiences, the same could be acclaimed by our Tropical IPA, which we would have named in his honour, except that there is already a beer called that, so Pitch Fever it is! However, unlike the journey of a football fan – a journey that will bring a lot of pain and very occasionally, moments of transcendental joy, enjoy a pint or two of our Pitch Fever beer and you are almost guaranteed many moments of joy without the pain!

IPA - Black IPA (KEG)

George Cruikshank being the friend and illustrator for Charles Dickens is probably responsible for why life in the densely populated Victorian Islington, along with its colourful characters featured so often in the writer’s novels with Dickens drawing on the observations he made on his frequent visits to Cruikshank’s home and studio in Amwell Street. As a teetotaller Cruikshank probably would not have been tempted by our black IPA, but you can enjoy a pint or two of this citrusy, hoppy, spicy beer and consider how life has changed since the dark days of Dickensian London

Project Cask -  Heritage

Heritage Ale

Everyone knows the world’s most hand-crafted beer is cask ale and in order to brew great cask ale, it takes a lot of fussing over; will react badly to being brewed on a large scale so epitomises artisan, small-batch beer; is very temperamental about where it lives -like a very discerning house guest it likes comfort and just the right temperature, which is why it is just so hard to make! But when you are served a freshly poured, well-handled cask ale, with its character flavour which our brewer has teased out of their favourite yeast, it’s a marvel! Project Cask has been created to allow the flair and expertise of our brewers to shine through. Changing each season, you will have the opportunity to taste amazing cask ales, from amazing ambers, to aged-old resurrected recipes, to the fruitiest pale ales or iconic porters, and it’s a great opportunity to invite guests to join you on your inaugral brew day!
