Now that Sheer Folly is no longer available we are including another beer from our closest local brewery, Wood’s Brewery at Wistanstow, a beer called Shropshire Hills Beauty.
On the back label Wood’s provide some useful tasting notes for this 4.2% abv beer:
Shropshire Hills Beauty pours with a pleasing, mild amber colour and a well-rounded, malty flavour. This wonderful mouthful is backed by a pleasantly bitter aftertaste, achieved through a fusion of fruity hops.
There is also some helpful information explaining the rationale behind the beer:
The Wood Brewery sits on the edge of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and we first brewed Beauty in 2012 to mark 30 years of the AONB.
We’re really lucky to live and work in this part of Britain with Folly View Let situated just a few miles from the southern edge of the special place that is the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
You can use Folly View Let as a base to explore the region and the wealth of natural attractions that it offers including:
The Long Mynd
Titterstone Clee Hill
all of which lie within the Shropshire Hills AONB.
