A Fox in the Cellar


Wily brewers once discovered the magic of cellaring strong, malty beers.

This Bière de Garde is a rich red ale with bready malt and subtle fruit flavours.


The Bière de Garde style hails from Northern France, along the Belgian border. It was a style brewed strong enough to be cellared for many months. Commercial examples come in a range of colours: blondeambrée and brune; ours is a foxy shade of red...

We brewed A Fox in the Cellar in May 2016, so it’s had over 4 months' cool storage, during which time it has mellowed and matured considerably. Expect super fine bubbles, with delicate lacing.

Bières de Garde put *malt* front and centre - we used a range of toasted malts to provide layers of nutty, bready, and spicy malt character. We also made sure that the malt is rich without being too sweet - the finish should be satisfyingly dry. Hops play a supporting role here, adding just the right level of spicy bitterness to make it rather moreish - which means it's a little dangerous at 6.8% alcohol...

An elegant and complex beer, that will continue to improve if cellared longer.
