Bishop's Tipple

The deliciously zingy Bishop’s Tipple was created to celebrate George Reindorp’s appointment as the Bishop of Salisbury in 1973. He was a big fan, describing it as “a temptress with its pale golden hue and soft after palate."

A strong ale, Bishop’s Tipple boasts aromas of toasted malt and spicy hops on the nose. Deceptively light in colour, it has a strong flavour balanced with a zingy hop bitterness and a long clean finish.

Five different hops make up this punchy, powerful ale, including Goldings, Styrian Goldings, Saaz, Target and Galaxy combined with Pale Ale malted barley.

With an ABV of 5.0% (5.5% in bottles), it is available by cask and cask-conditioned bottle. You can also buy Bishop’s Tipple beer in our online shop – a must-visit for any real ale fan.
