Brewery and Historic House Toast ‘Capability Brown’

An East Yorkshire based brewery have teamed up with a local historic house to celebrate 300 years since the birth of the world famous Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.

a8S9A7580-1000pxAward winning Great Newsome Brewery, who are based in Winstead have worked in partnership with Burton Constable Hall to produce a special bottle beer, aptly named ‘Incapability Brown Ale’.

Brown was not only responsible for transforming the parkland at Burton Constable during the 18th century as well as countless other historical properties through the region, but also for the design of the Hall’s former Brewhouse.

“Incapability Brown Ale” is a celebration of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown and his impact on the British landscape with houses and stately homes such as Burton Constable Hall being transformed.

Inspired by this, Great Newsome’s new beer uses home-grown brown malt, which although is brewed stronger to suit the modern palate, is typical of an ale that would have been brewed in the historic original Brewhouse.

The new beer joins an already stellar line up of award winning offerings from the brewery who have been using their own home grown malting barley to create their award winning range 2007 and  now supply their cask and bottled beers throughout the UK and overseas.

The bottle beer will be available at Burton Constable Hall plus Great Newsome Brewery and its usual stockists.
