Shotover Brewing Co.
Shotover are a craft brewery located just outside of the city of Oxford, England. Established in November 2009 in a 200 year old redundant stable at Manor Farm, Horspath, at the foot of Shotover Hill. A hill with a rich history including Charles Wesley being robbed by a Highwayman and a Queens College Student being said to have killed a wild boar by shoving a copy of Aristotle down it’s throat.
The beer itself is a lovely marriage of English and new world hops. They use traditional methods to brew and produce four core ales:
Prospect – A Copper Pale Ale - “bitter dry with a surprisingly big mouthfeel”
Scholar – A Classic Bitter – “spicy and full”
Trinity – A Golden Pale Ale – “pale, dry and intensely hoppy”
Porter – A Classic Porter – “smooth and rich with hints of coffee and chocolate”
