Hailed by the late beer writer Michael Jackson as “one of the great characters of the beer world”, Abbot Ale is brewed for quality of the highest order.
ABBOT ALE IS BREWED IN BURY ST. EDMUNDS – A PLACE WHICH ENJOYS A RICH BREWING HERITAGE THAN CAN BE TRACED BACK ALMOST 1000 YEARS.
The famous Domesday Book includes a passage about ‘cerevisiarii’ or ale brewers as servants of the Abbot in Bury St Edmunds’ Great Abbey. The Greene King brewery sits alongside the historic ruins of the Abbey and to this day our brewers still draw water from the same chalk wells used by their brewing predecessors all those years ago.
