YOUNG MEMBERS VISIT TRING BREWERY!
For the first major Young Members event on
Wednesday 24th September the CAMRA young
members (and a few of the old!) from all over
Mid-Chilterns gathered for a tour of Tring
brewery. Tring brewery is just over 20 years
old. It was first established over at Tring
industrial estate but now lies just outside the
centre of town, surrounded by many fields.
After a refreshing pint, our tour by Andrew
began with a brief history of the brewery. We
were shown around their main brewing room
which, though a fairly small space, churns out
an impressive amount of beer!
Andrew explained their brewing process and
the different malts that can go into the beers.
Tring like to experiment with a wide range of
hop varieties – UK, American, New Zealand.
They even had a Slovenian-hopped seasonal
beer on at the bar! Out of their many beers,
Side Pocket For a Toad is their best-seller and
is therefore brewed the most. However, we
also saw a number of seasonal and regular
beers in the mid-stages of brewing.
After the tour, many of the young members
gathered around a barrel table and made an
extensive study of the four beers available at
the bar. We had their award-winning dark and
rich Tea Kettle Stout, the light and lovely
Moongazing, Tubby Dormouse, a seasonal one
with Slovenian hops and a subtle, lightly
flavoured wheat beer called Hazy Hoedown.
This was accompanied by an excellent fish and

chip supper. The time passed quickly, and sadly
only a few pints later it was time to go. We did
however manage to leave with a Tring t-shirt, a
Tring barrel pint glass and one of my favourite
beers - Death or Glory. Thankfully, Tring beers
can be found in many Mid-Chilterns pubs!
We are planning to visit the Red Squirrel Brewery
Shop in Chesham on Saturday 15th November –
let us know if you want to come along. We will
also be planning another young members’
brewery trip in the next few months. If you have
any suggestions for where you’d like to go, please
let us know!

BEER FESTS CONTINUED – THE BRANCH’S TWO BIG ONES
Two of the area’s biggest fests of the summer
were highly successful once again. Penn Street
has now established a great mid-summer stop off.
The two village pubs, the Squirrel and the Hit or
Miss help pull in huge crowds over the three days
with their 100+ beers and ciders. With the cricket
matches on over the weekend helping, the two
pubs run by the same family do miracles to
provide real ales to the mainly uninitiated who try
beers from all over Britain including some local
ones. The mix of beers from well-known brands
like Adnams and Badger and small micros can be
affected by the weather but must maintain a good
temperature. The Mackens do a great job year on
year to provide people with a great choice of beer
and music which, along with their food options
and hard-working staff, do our area proud.
The second large event of the latter part of the
summer is the Ley Hill Beer and Music Festival.
Again it’s run by the two village pubs, the Swan
and the Crown. Although throughout the year
they cater for different punters, on the August
Bank Holiday weekend they work well together to
give a huge festival of beer and music. The beer
in both cases mainly features two local breweries,
Tring and Red Squirrel, with tents concentrating
on both. These are boosted by some unusual
micros from far and wide including Dark Star.
Tring and Red Squirrel feature their latest
offerings as well as their tried and tested
favourites. The two breweries between them
promote many local fests and always present
their ales in perfect condition. The music is
always a massive part of the weekend and come
rain or shine offers a big choice of styles and
tastes from rock to pop, blues and folk. Usual
heroes Tim Hain and Robin Bibi Band and The
MIDCHILTERNS BRANCH CAMRA
Numbers gave high class performances.
The Jolly Cricketers Beer Festival
Some other fests well worth mentioning were
mainly over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
The Jolly Cricketers at Seer Green featured
mainly local beers that supplemented the good
selection they serve all year in this award-winning
pub and restaurant. They were narrowly pipped
at the post in the Publican Free House of the
Year competition, no mean feat for a small village
pub, but this achievement shows their dedication
to the beer side of things. Their food offering is
also of the highest order; in July a Michelinstarred chef selected their ‘gourmet sausage roll’
as one of five top bar snacks nationwide to be
awarded the Leffe Gastro Bites Award.

The Kings Arms, Tring, may have changed
hands in the last year but the quality of ales they
offer has certainly not dipped. At this Bank
Holiday fest the proof of the pudding was in the
drinking and Rob Muirhead, the new man on the
block, proved he was doing the previous
landlords John and Vicki justice. In fact they were
both in attendance on the Sunday to proudly
receive a CAMRA award for “Services to Real
Ale” presented by Rob, the man in charge of this
Mid Chilterns favourite.

ST. ALBANS BEER AND CIDER FESTIVAL
Once again the Alban Arena was host to
Hertfordshire’s biggest pub serving over 400
beers, ciders and perries over four days from
24th-27thSeptember. Over 9,500 turned up to
drink their way through 34,000 pints of real
ale, 4,000 pints of ciders and perries, 100
foreign beers and 70 bottle-conditioned
British beers.
There were two beer tasting competitions,
one to decide the 2014 champion beer of
Hertfordshire (judged by members of the
Herts CAMRA branches), the winner being
Alecraft’s High Five (5.9%abv) brewed at the
back of The Farmers Boy pub in St Albans.
The second beer judging was held on
Thursday afternoon for champion beer of the
Festival. The winner was Elland 1872 Porter,

dark and creamy at 5.9% abv. There was a
tutored beer tasting led by Roger Protz (the
editor of the Good Beer Guide) and also a
tutored cider session run by an experienced
cider judge and bar manager. The outside
patio area was host to Yuley’s bratwurst
sausages and burgers cooked over charcoal,
and close by was Handmade Cornish
Pasties. The food inside the auditorium was
provided by caterers of the Kings Head (to
re-open shortly in St. Albans). A tombola and
daily breweriana auctions raised money for
charities; a Saturday afternoon quiz, CAMRA
products and membership stands all
contributed to the beer festival atmosphere.
There was live music on Thursday evening by
Swan Vesta Social Club, an entertaining
Anglo-Cuban band, and on Saturday there
were two bands: Billington and Quinn playing
Country and Americana music in the
afternoon and Climax Blues Band to finish off
the festival in the evening.
Thanks to Phil Defriez (Festival Organiser),
the organising team and the volunteers, it
was another excellent St Albans festival. Next
year’s dates are: 30th September to 3rd
October 2015.

AROUND THE BRANCH
A FLANDERS TALE
REMEMBRANCE ALES
On Tuesday 29th July I attended a very unusual
invitation to Chiltern Brewery, Terrick, at the
rather early time of 8.30 a.m. for a Belgian
Breakfast. This was to launch their bottleconditioned limited edition Flanders Pale Ale
brewed to commemorate the centenary of World
War 1. This is a very strong beer at 6.2% that is
bottled at the brewery unpasteurised with its
original yeast. Roger Protz, who had a large hand
in the devising of this marvellous ale and was
guest of honour at this early hour, spoke
passionately about the link between the British
and Belgian love of beer and how we shipped and
flew barrels over to our troops to sustain their
thirst and morale during this rather long-winded
war.
Every year a few brewers support The Royal
British Legion’s Poppy Appeal with special ales
and most pubs have poppies on the bar for us to
buy. The Royal British Legion sends out around
40 million poppies every year and the nation
pauses on Remembrance Sunday (9th November
this year) for a two-minute silence ‘at the eleventh
hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month’ Armistice Day - the end of the First World War.
Tom Jenkinson, one of the heads at Chiltern, also
made an impassioned speech about their part in
the brewing of this wonderful tribute to our gallant
troops. Also in attendance was BBC Oxford who
made a short film shown on TV that evening.
Most Remembrance Ales
are bottled but draught
versions can be found
such
as
Marston’s
Armistice Ale and Woods
Poppy Ale; among our
LocAle brewers, XT has
Lest We Forget.
As this year is the
centenary of the start of
this war the public is more aware of the sacrifice
made by the youth of the world. These pubs have
told me they will be putting on a Remembrance
Ale so we can honour their memory: The Black
Cat (Lye Green), The Crown (Ley Hill), The
Gamekeepers Lodge (Chesham), The Jolly
Sportsman (Chesham), The Misty Moon
(Chesham), The Pheasant (Chesham), The Red
Lion (Chenies), The Red Lion (Marsworth), The
Rising Sun (Berkhamsted), The Sugar Loaf Inn
(Little Chalfont) and The Swan (Ley Hill).
So raise a glass to the lost millions: we will
remember them.
Brian
Roger Protz (l) and Tom Jenkinson launch Flanders Ale
We were given a generous supply of Flanders Ale
along with a very hearty selection of Chilterns
food produce that helped to soak up the rather
strong and fabulous brew.
A special thank you to all at Chiltern Brewery who
made this event possible and to Mr. Protz for his
informative talk on this very worthwhile project.

MIDCHILTERNS BRANCH CAMRA
MID CHILTERNS’ FIRST NATIONAL FINALIST
FOR CIDER PUB OF THE YEAR 2014
A Mid Chilterns pub reaching the last four in the
country for any category of award is no mean
achievement, but for one to achieve such
recognition for cider from a region not known for
its cider connections is a huge success. The
Rising Sun at Berkhamsted has pushed cider
ever since Nigel and Mark took over and the
Page 8
THE CHILTERN TAPLER WINTER 2014/15
benefit has now paid off big time. Their passion
and belief in this much maligned area of CAMRA
is a credit to them and their staff and I am sure
that the fact that they have local cider producers,
Millwhites, on their doorstep at Bourne End has
helped no end to achieve this. John at Millwhites
should also be proud of the work he has done to
bring cider to the forefront of peoples’
consciousness locally.
To get within a hair’s
breadth of this national recognition is truly
wonderful. The final winner, The Castle Inn at
West Lulworth, Dorset, was regarded by Nigel as
a truly worthwhile champion with its 40 ciders on
sale, but with the Riser selling 15 going on to 30
at festival time, this is still a glorious achievement
by a small Mid Chilterns pub. Also, to get Central
Southern Region Runner Up in the main pub
competition is proof of their overall class in
CAMRA circles. We congratulate all at the Riser
for a fabulous year, perhaps now with this
Regional and National recognition it will prove to
all those doubters the pub’s real success.
Keep an eye on our website for the presentation
dates for these two awards.
Dave B.
THE BELLCOTE, ASHLEY GREEN
Some Branch members visited this new Marston’s
pub a couple of days after it opened and found
the four beers available from the Marston’s
catalogue were reasonably acceptable after we
got them to take the sparkler off. We will give a
fuller review of this pub once it has been going for
a while because it was unfair to make a
judgement on just one short visit so near to the
opening.

WINTER ALES
Winter Ales have a long history as ‘one for the
road’: their extra alcohol
warmed you up for the
long, cold, wander home.
To get the higher alcohol
level, brewers used more
malt than usual, which also
gave a slightly sweeter
taste. Most beers were
dark in those days because the barley was
MIDCHILTERNS BRANCH CAMRA
malted over coal or wood fires and the soot stuck.
Our LocAle brewers are into Winter Ales; look out
for Chiltern Three Hundreds Old Ale, Fuller’s Old
Winter Ale, Gales Winter Brew, Malt Winter Ale,
Oxfordshire Ales Winters Inn, Rebellion Roasted
Nuts, Red Squirrel Winter’s Tale, Tring Snowfake
(sic) and XT 25.
If you want to try these beers then head for your
local pubs in November, most will have one. The
ones I know about are: The Black Cat (Lye
Green), The Chequers (Amersham), The
Crabtree (Hemel Hempstead), The Crown
(Berkhamsted), The Crown (Ley Hill), The
Crown & Sceptre (Bridens Camp), The Crown
Inn (Little Missenden), The Eagle (Amersham),
The Full House (Hemel Hempstead), The
Gamekeepers
Lodge
(Chesham),
The
Greyhound (Wigginton), The Hen & Chickens
(Botley), The Kings Arms (Amersham), The
Kings Arms (Tring), The Misty Moon
(Chesham), The Pheasant (Chesham), The
Plough (Hyde Heath), The Pomeroy Inn
(Amersham Common), The Queens Head
(Chesham), The Red Lion (Chenies), The Red
Lion (Chesham), The Red Lion (Marsworth), The
Rising Sun (Berkhamsted), The Robin Hood
(Tring), The Rose & Crown (Ivinghoe), The
Saracens Head (Amersham), The Sugar Loaf
Inn (Little Chalfont), The Swan (Ley Hill) and The
Valiant Trooper (Aldbury). You will find an
excellent choice at the Winter Ales & Ciders
Festival at the Rising Sun from 27th to 30th
November.
Back in the pre-decimalisation early 1960s I seem
to remember that a pint of beer was just over one
shilling (5p+) so a 7% ABV winter ale would have
been the equivalent of around 8p. By contrast, a
single scotch (1/6 gill) was over two shillings
(10p+). Today all three are roughly the same
price but scotch strength and measure changed
slightly on metrification. With a little jiggerypokery on the units of alcohol system we can see
that a 1960s pint of winter ale would have had the
same warming alcohol as four single scotches;
even today’s 5% ABV winter ales equate to three.
As our American friends say, “Do the math”.

RARE IMPERIAL VISITOR – QUEENS
HEAD, CHESHAM
During the second of the Queens Head’s recent
beer festivals, Fuller’s Imperial Stout was
available on draught - reportedly one of the only
outlets in the country to get it. At 10.7% it could
only be purchased in halves but was indeed a
majestic beer and I am glad I managed to sample
some of it.

ONLY FIFTY DRINKING DAYS LEFT TILL
CHRISTMAS!
At a time when retailers everywhere are gearing
up the usual dreary advertising blitz to entice us
into a massive Christmas shopping spree, it’s
important to remember that there are much more
fun ways to get into the festive spirit.
And what better way than drinking Christmas
Ales. Not that long ago, there were very few
around; brewers just had a catch-all winter ale.
This began to change, first with ‘Christmassy’
pump-clips but a few brewers started to add
spices and other Christmas tastes to the mix. I
am told that Timothy Taylor’s Christmas Ale
“tastes like mince pies.”
Look out for LocAle favourites: Oxfordshire Uncle
Scrooge, Rebellion Downhill, Red Squirrel
Winter’s Tale – “…spicy, blackcurrant notes…”,
Tring Robin Red Breast – “...raisin like
flavours…”, Vale Good King Senseless and XT
25.
Most pubs will have a Christmas ale; I know
about: The Black Cat (Lye Green), The Crown
(Berkhamsted), The Crown (Ley Hill) – plus
mulled cider, The Crown & Sceptre (Bridens
Camp), The Crown Inn (Little Missenden), The
Eagle (Amersham), The Full House (Hemel
Hempstead),
The
Gamekeepers
Lodge
(Chesham), The George & Dragon (Chesham),
The Greyhound (Wigginton), The Harte &
Magpies (Coleshill) – plus home-made mulled
cider, The Hen & Chickens (Botley), The Jolly
Sportsman (Chesham), The Kings Arms
(Amersham), The Kings Arms (Tring), The Misty
Moon (Chesham), The Pheasant (Chesham),
The Plough (Hyde Heath), The Pomeroy Inn
(Amersham Common), The Potters Arms
(Winchmore Hill), The Queens Head (Chesham),
The Red Lion (Chenies), The Red Lion
(Chesham), The Red Lion (Coleshill), The Red
Lion
(Marsworth),
The
Rising
Sun
(Berkhamsted) – plus home-made mulled cider,
The Robin Hood (Tring), The Rose & Crown
(Ivinghoe), The Saracens Head (Amersham),
The Sugar Loaf Inn (Little Chalfont), The Swan
(Ley Hill) and The Valiant Trooper (Aldbury).
Oliver Cromwell put an end to the licentious
Twelve Days of Christmas but some fun,
especially singing, still goes on even in our more
secular times. Look out for quizzes in The
Plough (Hyde Heath) and The Queens Head
(Chesham). There will be a Christmas Tea Party
at The Gamekeepers Lodge (Chesham); a
Christmas Panto and Poem, ending with carols,
at The Kings Arms (Tring); on the 18th December
enjoy comedy with Hal Cruttenden at The Potters
Arms (Winchmore Hill) and on the 20th the
Jumper Party at The Queens Head.
Listen for the charity floats visiting our towns and
villages: carol singers perform on the commons
outside The Plough (Hyde Heath) and The
Plough and The Potters Arms (Winchmore Hill).
On 17th December The Queens Head has a carol
concert by members of the Chess Valley Male
Voice Choir. Enjoy the annual Santas’ Carol
Singing Evening in The Eagle (Amersham). Hear
the church choir in The Hen & Chickens (Botley)
and join in the carols in The Black Cat (Lye
Green). Tradition is upheld, including by the
Morris men, in The Rising Sun (Berkhamsted)
and on Christmas Eve all enjoy singing in The
Red Lion (Chenies). There are Christmas Eve
Karaoke/DJs in The Chequers (Amersham), The
Crown (Ley Hill), The Gamekeepers Lodge and
The George & Dragon (Chesham).
Into more modern times, expect the 20th/21st
century music played during December to remind
us how these commercial brainworm songs go.

And just about every pub that does food will have a
Christmas Menu for family, friends and works
parties.
As we approach year end we can look forward to a
bit of fun as our towns/villages turn their Christmas
lights on. This usually happens in the High Street or
equivalent: shops stay open, local organisations
take stalls and there is entertainment for the
children. The pubs make an effort to tempt in
passersby, but beware the divorce points if you
forget the kids.
The first one I can find is on Saturday 15th
November with Hemel Hempstead Old Town’s
Christmas light switch on and on Sunday 30th
Hemel Hempstead (Marlowes) has their turn. On
Friday 28th Chesham goes for it (look out for the
pop-up bar from the The Misty Moon – avoid those
divorce points) and Tring has the Tring Together
Traditional Christmas Festival on Friday 28th as
well. Kings Langley lights up the High Street on
Saturday 29th and Berkhamsted has its Festival of
Lights on Sunday 30th.
Into December and
Amersham Old Town has its fun on Friday 5th then
Amersham-on-the-Hill lights their Christmas Tree
on Saturday 6th. Also on Friday 5th Chalfont St
Peter has their Christmas Fun Night and Chalfont
St. Giles lights up the village green on the 6th
December.
Ho, ho, ho.

Woodforde’s Nelson’s Revenge, Vale’s Black

GAMEKEEPERS LODGE – 1ST YEAR AND BEER
Pat and Steve Miller at the Gamekeepers Lodge
proudly held their 1st Beer Fest on the weekend of
19th – 21st September. This Bellingdon Road pub in
Chesham is a community pub in a multi-cultural part
of the town and has many things to admire, not
least its loyal and regular customers, who keep it
going throughout the year. They are gradually
being converted to real ale and following the
addition of the 4th hand pump the battle is being
won. On Pat and Steve’s 1st anniversary it therefore
seemed a good time to have a Beer Fest. They
arranged music over most of the weekend and

RED SQUIRREL BREWERY SHOP,
CHESHAM
19th September saw the first year of trading
completed at the Red Squirrel Brewery Shop,
Market Square, Chesham and a party to
celebrate was duly arranged. Six Mid Chilterns
CAMRA members attended the event where a
new beer was launched. Legally Blonde
Hefeweizen Wheat Beer (4.8%) met with very
favourable comments. Needless to say all beers
available on the night were in superb condition.
The Hefeweizen was brewed by 21 year old
Jacob, a student from Munich studying brewing
there, who had spent time at Red Squirrel to get
some valuable experience brewing commercially.
Well done to all at Red Squirrel for giving him this
opportunity.
Greg (the brewery owner) praised Tim the shop
manager and staff on the commitment and hard
work shown during the first year of trading. Tim
was then presented with a ukelele and duly
proceeded to play a tune to add to the previous
musical duo who entertained those present.
So where can these expats go for a taste of
home? Try The Crown (Berkhamsted); The
George & Dragon, The Misty Moon, The
Queens Head – (all in Chesham) plus The Full
House (Hemel Hempstead).
Get down to one to enjoy a taste of Scotland but
don’t wind up the Scots, they may still be feeling a
little sensitive.
Scots have celebrated the birthday of Robert
Burns (25th January) for over 200 years and it is
the last of their three winter celebrations, after St.
Andrew’s Day and Hogmanay. There are formal
events where the haggis is paraded to the
accompaniment of the bagpipes and eaten with
mashed neeps (swede) and tatties (spuds), toasts
are drunk, speeches are made and his poetry is
read. If you want to experience this make a
booking at The Full Moon (Hawridge Common)
or The Village Hall (Chalfont St Peter).
TWO BIG DATES IN THE SCOTTISH
CALENDAR
If you want to try just the haggis, neeps and
tatties you have a growing choice, and many will
also have a Scottish ale. Visit The Bedford Arms
(Chenies), The Bell (Chartridge) – with a full
Scottish menu and music on the 24th, The Crown
(Berkhamsted), The Full House (Hemel
Hempstead),
The
Gamekeepers
Lodge
(Chesham), The Plough (Hyde Heath) –
including a fried Mars bar, The Pomeroy Inn
(Amersham Common), The Red Lion (Chenies) –
with a veggie option and Cullen skink soup, The
Red Lion (Chesham) and The Swan
(Amersham).
Saint Andrew’s Day (30th November) is officially
Scotland’s national day and in Scotland the day is
marked formally by the public, schools, politicians
and artists. It is also a significant day (sometimes
week) for the Scottish Diaspora.
If you don’t fancy haggis, neeps or tatties try the
Scottish ales laid on in The George & Dragon,
The Misty Moon, The Queens Head (Chesham)
and The Sugar Loaf Inn (Little Chalfont).

So, good luck from Mid Chilterns CAMRA to the
Red Squirrel Brewery Shop and may you enjoy
many successful years trading in Chesham. We
also look forward to future various special events
you may have planned for the future.

We have Scottish expatriates on our patch and a
few of our pubs are putting on Scottish real ales
for them. I have tried to find special Saint Andrew
beers brewed in Scotland and all I can find is
Belhaven’s St Andrews Ale – but the pump clip
shows the Old Course so I suspect it is meant for
golfers on any day of the year.

PROTECT YOUR LOCAL - GET IT
LISTED!
If you’re concerned that a much-loved
community pub near you is under threat from
developers intent on turning it into flats or a
supermarket, under the Localism Act 2011 you
can nominate it to be listed as an Asset of
Community
Value
(ACV).
This
gives
communities the power to stop the clock for six
months when faced with a pub going up for sale,
earning valuable time to explore options for
saving it. Over 300 pubs in England have been
successfully listed as ACVs; those in the Branch
area include the Greyhound, Wigginton, the
Bull, Bellingdon, the Royal Oak, Bovingdon
Green, the Half Moon, Wilstone, and the Royal
Oak, Chipperfield.
To get your local listed, you’ll need to take the
following steps:
1. Visit your local council’s website and search
for the section entitled ‘Assets of Community
Value’ or ‘Right to Bid’, then download the
nomination form. If there is none available,
you can use CAMRA’s template nomination
MIDCHILTERNS BRANCH CAMRA
form (see the link below).
2. Complete the form with as much information as
you can, explaining why you think the pub
should be registered as an asset to the
community. CAMRA recommends that you
nominate the pub as an Unincorporated Group.
This is where 21 local people on the electoral
register nominate an Asset as any member of
the public.
3. Gather the support of 21 people from the
community in favour of listing the pub as an
ACV. Download CAMRA's 21 Nominee Form
(see the link below) to help gather this. Each
person must be registered to vote in your local
authority (i.e. on the electoral register) and
from a different address.
4. Submit both forms to your local council.
For further information about Assets of Community
value and the nomination process, visit CAMRA’s
website:

BREWERY NEWS
ABC: The welcome problem of the Aylesbury
brewhouse’s Limited Edition Beers being
snapped up by as swiftly as they brew them
means that Head Brewer Hayden must come up
with new, spellbinding recipes just as quickly! But
have no fear, more are in the pipeline!
Mitosis will be an experimental 4% ale using
American Citra hops & red rye malt for a citrusy,
malty explosion on the palate, and a full on bitter
finish. Named after the invigorating process that
yeast goes through in the fermentation process to
create that lovely, alcoholic flavoured water we
call real ale!
The first Aylesbury Brewhouse 'Brewer For A Day'
helped Hayden dig out the mash tun, weigh out
the hops, and
transfer the wort
for the brew of
Musashi.
Miyamoto Musashi
was Japan's
greatest
swordsman; he
created his own
style of double
sword fighting called Niten Ichi Ryu, translated as
'Two Swords Under One Heaven'. This beer will
be double hopped - in the brewing process and
then dry hopped in cask, creating a crisp, pale
4.5% with a sharp bitterness that will cut through
the floral hop flavour!
White Leviathan follows many ABC brews with
literary influence as an ode to Herman Melville's
Moby Dick; a pale stout at 4.8% brewed with sea
salt, wheat malt and hops from the four corners of
the globe, resulting in a monstrous beer worth
hunting down.

Some may hope for a cold snap when they see
what THE CHILTERN BREWERY has up its
winter seasonal beers sleeve.
There is much excitement surrounding the launch
of the limited edition bottle-conditioned Black
Chocolate Stout (9.5%), a sumptuously smooth
Imperial stout, aged for 18 months and brewed
with a special blend of 100% British roasted
malts, including chocolate malt. Deep and
velvety, it is the perfect accompaniment to the
festive season.
Glad Tidings bottled winter stout (4.6%) made a
welcome return at the end of last month. This is
an award-winning black sweet stout with a unique
style and flavour, perfect as a winter warmer,
which featured in beer writer Jeff Evan’s World
Top Ten Christmas Beers in 2011.
Another winter seasonal favourite, Foxtrot (3.9%)
is on tap in November and December. Displaying
an exceptional balance of premium malt and
choice English hops, this limited edition ale is
dark and irresistibly smooth; complex and
‘cunningly’ tasty!
These
beers
are
available
online
at
www.chilternbrewery.co.uk, at the beautiful old
brewery shop in Terrick or the Farmer’s Bar.
HARESFOOT
BREWERY launched its
fourth beer on 18
October, after just six
months of being open to
the public. Totem is an
American style IPA
which explodes with
citrusy flavour and hop
aromas, all perfectly
balanced by a subtle malt character. This light,
crisp, extra hoppy brew is full of character and
hugely refreshing any time of year. Totem is
named after Berkhamsted’s very own totem pole,
which can be found adjacent to the Grand Union
Canal.
Page 17
THE CHILTERN TAPLER WINTER 2014/15
A few weeks beforehand, Haresfoot launched
Conqueror’s Premium Bitter. The abundance of
roasted barley creates this rich chestnut coloured
ale. Simcoe hops offer a mixed malty and fruity
nose balanced by a lingering malty taste with a
rounded bitter finish. Conqueror's is full-bodied,
distinctive and strong in character.
“Conq” is named after a local historical figure.
William the Conqueror ordered the construction of
Berkhamsted Castle after he defeated the AngloSaxons in the Battle of Hastings and accepted
their surrender in Berkhamsted. William's halfbrother, Robert of Mortain, built and owned the
castle.
Following accreditation by CAMRA for their Real
Ale In A Bottle, Malt’s Brewer, Nick, is delighted to
have been awarded his first Gold Star by the
Great Taste Awards 2014 for Malt Dark Ale.
Judged by over 400 of the most demanding
palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks,
farmers and a host of food writers and journalists,
Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most
respected food accreditation scheme for artisan
and speciality food producers.
Haresfoot is now offering brewery tours to the
public every Thursday and they are also proving
popular – email [email protected] to secure
your place. Also, throughout November look out
for meet the brewer evenings at a number of local
hostelries including Estcourt Arms (Watford),
Old Millwrights Arms (Aylesbury), Eagle
(Amersham) and White Hart (Whelpley Hill).
Another hectic few months have paid off well at
RED SQUIRREL BREWING CO, as the team
have won a number of awards. Jack Black was
named runner up champion beer of Hertfordshire
2014 at the St. Albans Beer Festival and
Redwood was named third place beer of the
festival. At the SIBA Eastern Competition, London
Porter received bronze in the porters, strong mild,
old ales and stouts category, Red Dawn Mild won
gold in standard milds and Redtail Citra bottles
got silver in bottled bitters. Red Dawn then went
on to win bronze in the overall champion beer in
the eastern region!
MALT THE BREWERY: "Pump Take Over" at the
Millwrights in Aylesbury was a fabulous success.
The brewery team and their club members 'The
Maltsters' arrived in style on a London
Routemaster. They enjoyed a full selection of
Malt Ales on the bar. Marc, Landlord at the
Millwrights said 'Its been amazing, having the
Routemaster visit the pub was superb'.
At the time of going to press, the late
summer/early autumn special Erasmus is
available. Erasmus is a heavily hopped golden
ale, which sits at 4.7% with a big tropical fruit
nose and a bitter fruit palette. It has proved to be
very popular with customers at both the Brewery
tap (which is now open until 5pm on a Saturday)
and at the Chesham Brewery Shop.
If you'd like to see the Team Malt and the
Routemaster visit your pub, ask your landlord to
call Maria at Malt The Brewery.
The next exciting brews
in the pipeline are Red
Rascal,
a
5.5%
American style red ale
which will be available
throughout autumn, and
a new addition to the
Mad Squirrel range, a
4% cask Milk Stout. Looking ahead, A Winter’s
Tail (5%) will be brewed for the first time this
season at the start of November and will be
available over the festive period and into 2015.
TRING BREWERY: As the end of the year draws
to a close so does Tring’s hugely successful 2014

monthly specials range which used a selection of
hop varieties from around the world. To see out
the year they will be presenting the Slovenian
hopped Tubby Dormouse, the French hopped
Ibex and finally returning home back to the UK in
December with a Bramling Cross hopped Robin
Red Breast. If you're a fan
of the multi-award winning
Tea Kettle Stout then you'll
be pleased to know the
bottled version is back in
stock and this time round
it's bottle-conditioned to
yield even more complex flavour profiles.
The end of September saw this year's voting for
the SIBA East Region Beer Championship. Tring
did Hertfordshire proud with Death or Glory
picking up a Gold Award, Tea Kettle Stout and
Kotuku each taking Silver and Side Pocket taking
Bronze in their respective categories.
VALE: As you're reading, batches of our brand
new November monthly special Brewers Choice
will be fermenting. Using one of Head Brewer
David Renton's favourite English hops, First Gold,
it's a single hopped, easy drinking, floral,
traditional English golden ale at 3.9%, perfect for
supping by the fire down the pub!

In a final symbol of
respect
to
the
one
hundredth anniversary of
the start of The Great
War, for December we will
be brewing St Yvon, a
deep red ale with the
finest German and English
hops, to celebrate the fraternisation between
British and German soldiers during the festive
period of 1914.
XT BREWERY is growing! – new brewing vessels
are being installed in October to increase
production capacity at Long Crendon. A large
batch of new casks has also been purchased to
cope with increased demand for their range of
beers.
The recent St Albans beer festival enjoyed a
rather unique beer: XT AlphaAcid at 6% is an
extreme IPA, brewed to be Britain’s bitterest beer.
It came in at a mouth puckering 1000 Bittering
Units – compare that with a standard ‘best bitter’
which has about 40 units! The beer was a
challenge to all but the most hardened drinker!
We're not mentioning the 'C' word, but we'll be
brewing and bottling Good King Senseless. At
5.2% it’s the strongest beer we brew; dark, meaty
and strong, traditionally brewed with crystal and
chocolate malt, with hints of spice and rum raison.
But beware - we quickly run out, so be sure to
reserve your cases and draught, or be
disappointed! You can also be the first to know
The Animal Brewing beers
for October and November
will be: Chameleon, a 4.6%
nutty brown ale brewed with
lots of lovely British grown
hops throughout; and Snap,
a crisp pale blonde with
New World hops giving a
fruity refreshing beer.

THE TOWER OF LONDON REMEMBERS 1914-1918
On a lovely warm sunny day in October Squash –
otherwise known as Dave Badminton, Chairman
of Mid Chilterns CAMRA - and I went up to
London to visit Tower Bridge and the Tower of
London, the main purpose being to see the Blood
Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation at the
Tower. After an interesting tour round the Bridge
and some great views of London, we had
developed a thirst! Just round the corner we
stumbled upon the Anchor Tap in Copper Row
which boasts outside to being the only London
pub serving beer out of a wooden cask. This was
Samuel Smith’s Old Brewery Bitter which went
down very well. Squash had Samuel Smith’s
bottled Organic Chocolate Stout which also
disappeared quite quickly.
made for our country. Each evening at sunset
until 11th November there is a Roll of Honour
where 180 names of those who died are read out
amongst the poppies, followed by the Last Post.
A moving tribute – let’s remember them.
Gill
After a brief walk round Borough Market we
returned to the Tower for a visit, something
neither of us had done since junior school and
now we get in as OAPs!! With an hour to wait
until the Roll of Honour at the Tower we found a
Fuller’s pub, Hung, Drawn & Quartered, in Great
Tower Street which was packed with city gents
having just finished work, but we managed to get
a half of Castle Rock’s Harvest Pale Ale before
going back to the Tower.
The display of the ceramic poppies in memory of
the 888,246 Commonwealth Troops who were
killed during the 1st World War was a spectacular
yet sombre reminder of the sacrifice these troops

MALLORCAN ALE – A TREASURE WORTH SEEKING
Hang on, I hear you say, beer in Mallorca? Are
you sure you don’t mean lager? San Miguel?
No, we mean ale. Sadly not cask ale – the
temperatures are far too hot and the beer spoils
almost immediately. However Mallorca does
possess some good bottled beer (cervezas
artesanales), if you know where to look and are
dedicated to finding it! Dedicated to the cause as
we were, after extensive research we went on
many a hunt through the fine regions of Cala D’or,
Cala Esmerelda and Porto Cristo. And we were
pleasantly surprised.
Mallorca today does possess at least five or so
small craft breweries, despite the overwhelming
popularity of San Miguel and
Cruzcampo. They also have
a few imported ales from
mainland Spain. The beers
are all fridge-cold, but it’s
needed there. The best bar
by far to find ale, which we
discovered halfway through
our week on the island, is a
little mostly-vegetarian/vegan
bar and restaurant called
Tref, run by a friendly vegan
Mallorcan.
It stocked four beers – Xeixa,
Galilea and golden and red
label
Talaiotika.
Galilea
remained our favourite beer
of the holiday – a great hoppy ale, perfect for hot
weather. It is made by Cervezas Tramuntana, in
the Tramuntana mountains. Golden label
Talaiotika was an intriguing concoction, a wheat
beer almost cider-like in taste, whereas their red
label beer was a dark amber ale. Xeixa “honey
mead ale”, was pleasant and light, though a little
fizzy for our liking. On one memorable night the
landlord treated us to the last bottle of his
homebrewed Carob beer. Carob is widely grown
in this region of Mallorca, and it lent a fascinating
taste to the beer – somewhat chocolately,
MIDCHILTERNS BRANCH CAMRA
somewhat bitter, somewhat sour. It was a great
homebrew! They also home make a variety of
vegan delights, including vegan pizza, which had
a mashed potato and beer topping instead of
cheese! We concluded many a night in this bar
and ultimately drank it dry of ale!
For those looking for something a little closer to
home, the Smuggler’s Bar in Cala Egos takes
great pains to import and stock Hobgoblin and
Fuller’s London Pride. It’s a traditional British pub
with a piratical take – it has a large collection of
old trinkets and interesting knickknacks and the
interior is fantastic. We were recognised
immediately as CAMRA members by the landlord,
who was formerly from Southampton. Be cautious
however - the opening hours
are fairly flexible and so it’s not
a guarantee that it will be open.
Should you venture near Porto
Cristo (a lovely town and also
near the fantastic Cuevas del
Drac, well worth a visit), look
out for a small bar on Ctra.
Muelle on the far side of the
port. Having helpfully forgotten
its name, all we can say is look
for the one with a range of
German and Mallorcan beers
on a shelf and in the fridge,
and order a large variety while
contemplating the loveliness of
the port. This has the beer
Senador Volstead, named after the man who
unsuccessfully brought the Prohibition to Spain.
Their white label beer is refreshing and light,
perfect for a hot day, while the dark label beer is
rich and fairly strong (around 6%) but goes down
very well, so watch out!
A variety of other bottled ales can also be found
in Mallorcan delis or gift shops, so keep an eye
out and don’t just settle for the mass-produced
lager. There is even a yearly beer festival now in
Palma!
