Monty Python’s Holy Grail

HG6PACKTen years later on the 40th anniversary Holy Grail is still going strong.

With more hops than a killer rabbit, it’s a full-flavored golden ale with a distinctively fruity flavor followed by the Black Sheep signature dry finish.

Dangerously fruity against a biscuity malty background.

You can always taste the difference when an ale has been tempered by burning witches. In this respect Holy Grail certainly doesn’t disappoint with its clean zesty flavor and long crisp bitter finish.

We brew Holy Grail with Maris Otter malt, an old and expensive variety that is renowned for the taste and the quality of the beer it produces.

A mixture of old English Hop varieties including a touch of WGV hops gives Holy Grail its lovely fruity nose.

We use a touch of wheat which helps deliver the lovely creamy head and lacing down the glass – just what you would expect from a proper Yorkshire beer!

2009 was the 40th anniversary of Monty Python and the 10th Anniversary of our Holy Grail. To celebrate we are currently supplying the beer in all theatres showing the hit musical “Spamalot” on the nationwide tour.

Did You Know… 4.7% ABV

All our bottled ales are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
