Green King – Abbot Ale

The famous Domesday Book chronicles “cerevisiarii” or ale brewers as servants of the Abbot in the town’s 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 brewing predecessors all those years ago

This irresistible ale has masses of fruit characters, a malty richness and superb hop balance. It is brewed longer to a unique recipe.
