Brewed to celebrate Severn Valley Railway's Manor Class steam locomotives - Erlestoke, Bradley and Hinton. As a company we have committed our ongoing support to Severn Valley Railway by becoming a member of the SVR Charitable Trust set up to raise vital funds to preserve one of Britain's finest heritage railways.

Manor is a bitter amber ale with crisp refreshing flavour and biscuit overtones. Brewed with locally sourced Maris Otter malting barley and finished with Challenger and Cascade hops.

Bottle Notes - Manor Ale is a bottle conditioned beer which contains sediment, pour carefully and best stored upright at cellar temperature 10 - 12 degrees.

Manor is available in bottled beers through our online shop which offers nationwide delivery.
