Our Spike Island (Unfined) started as a Howbury brew, but it was so popular that during the 1st Lockdown in 2020 we made in part of our range.
‘Spike Island’ refers to an area in Northumberland Heath which had several Victorian workhouses.
‘Spikes’ were the nicknames for workhouses (due to the spikes on the railings around them) and because they were near each other, the area was known as ‘Spike Island’.
Our Spike Island is a dry stout with burnt caramel, coffee, chocolate & liquorice notes.
Available in cask and bottle (bottle conditioned)
