The retirement project to sample a pint of beer or cider brewed or fermented in each county in the United Kingdom.
What is it called? Barn Owl.
Who made it? Cotleigh Brewery Ltd, Ford Road, Wiveliscombe.
What is it? A bitter, brewed with Pale, Crystal and Chocolate Malt with Goldings, Fuggles and Northdown hops, plus ‘Cotleigh yeast’. It was brewed to aid conservation of owls for the Hawk and Owl Trust.
Alc Vol: 4.5%
What it says on the label: “A copper coloured premium ale with hints of toffee and nut with a smooth malty bitter sweet finish.”
Food combination: None suggested. I drank it with a very tasty Florentine pizza.
Retired Bloke says: I really liked this. It was everything it said on the label. Delicious.
Fancy another? Yes please!
It’s not about the beer: There are two Iron Age forts – Clatworthy Camp and Elworthy Burrows – near the town.
