Old Tom has been on the prowl for more 120 years and, having used up none of his nine lives, there's life in the old cat yet! Unlike other beers, Old Tom ages beautifully in the bottle (like a fine wine). Lay a bottle down and let the flavours flourish… something to look forward to! There's never been a better time to stock up for Christmas.
Dubbed ‘The original craft beer’, this dangerously drinkable legend has been in the family since 1899, when Tom, the old brewery cat, was sketched into immortality by Robinsons’ Head Brewer as he waited for the ale to ferment. 120 years on and it’s still the same great tasting ale, brewed to the same award-winning recipe.
Old Tom is one of the most famous strong ales in beer history and it’s not just 8 out of 10 who agree. A firm favourite with traditional drinkers, craft enthusiasts and beer judges alike, Old Tom has won the industry’s most prestigious awards; including World’s Best Ale, World’s Best Design, Champion Winter Beer of Britain and 3 stars at the Great Taste awards.
Rich, malty and warming, Old Tom has a distinctive deep port wine finish, with bitter hops balanced by the heady aromas of dark fruit.
Old Tom is 8.5% abv and dangerously drinkable... so please drink responsibly.
