However before you start going from pub to pub, make sure that you complete the man and van project that you have started. If you are facing a large scale relocation or a relocation that is extremely time sensitive, don’t think twice to contact a professional moving company and request assistance. By using professional man and van services you won’t only be able to complete your relocation more quickly but you will also have the peace of mind that everybody will go smoothly and nothing bad will happen to the items that are being moved.

  1. Bass-AleBass Ale – This beer was been in production since 1777 and currently considered to be the finest British ale in the world. It can be found in stores in two bottled version. However please note that the bottled version of Bass Ale isn’t anywhere as good as the draft one.
  2. Worthington White Shield – Much more recent than the previous ale, Worthington White Shield has been in production since 1829. The brewery that produces it is owned by Coors Brewery which is an American beer manufacturer. The Worthington White Shield has both draft and bottle versions.
  3. Gale’s Prize Old Ale – This beer is produced by a small brewery in George Gale, Hampshire and isn’t distributed nationally. So if you wish to have a glass of cold Gale’s Prize Old Ale you must make the road trip to a Hampshire based pub. However never drink this ale while it is young because you will certainly dislike it. Instead order a glass of Gale’s Prize Old Ale that is over twenty years old and we promise you that you will enjoy it in full.
  4. Theakston’s Old Peculier – This is undoubtedly England’s best known and most famous old ale.

  5. Morland Old Speckled Hen – An interesting fact about this ale is that it dates back to 1979, while the yeast from which the beer is made was harvested in 1896.
