La Choulette Brune

12 x 75cl — AP049
£8.15 bottle inc VAT

24 x 33cl — AP046
£3.85 bottle inc VAT

As above, but this deep, rich, brown beer has been made from highly roasted malt, giving it a chocolatey, malty flavour. This is reminiscent of the full-bodied, rich milds which were traditionally made in the North of England.

Once tasted, incredibly moreish.

Bière des Sans Culottes

12 x 75c –l AP045
£7.90 bottle inc VAT

24 x 33cl — AP025
£3.65 bottle inc VAT

Made in the tradition of artisan brewers, Sans Culottes is a blonde beer sur lie. Probably the best bière de garde for the uninitiated to start with.

Packed in a 75 cls bottle with a wired-down cork, Sans Culottes sports a brilliantly eye-catching label showing a revolutionary soldier proudly wearing his pantalons, having wisely forsaken his culottes for the coming struggle.

La Choublonette

12 x 75cl — AP055
£9.35 bottle inc VAT

Only in 75cl. It’s a Biere Exceptional. A rRather mischievous label, this Biere is brewed in the same manner as all Choulette bieres but has extra hops to produce what the master brewer describes as a ½ IPA. Although strong it has a crisp clean flavour.

8 % ABV.

Sans Culottes Ambre

£9.95 bottle inc VAT

This Ambre is a darker style, halfway between Blonde and Brune with heaps of flavour and a bit of a kick . This features the new Risque labelling with the lady certainly not overdressed.

Sans culottes Legere

12 x 75cl — AP069
£7.10 bottle inc VAT

24 x 33cl — AP033

A lager though a little stronger than most. This is crisp light and refreshing, wih a full hoppy flavour. Let us hope that the barrel does not have any splinters.

12 x 75cl — AP059
£9.60 bottle inc VAT

24 x 33cl — AP035
