Kingsdown ale is now available at the Duke.
Once a regular favourite at the Duke but Arkell’s now only brew this beer a few times a year. Now available for a limited period only.
Kingsdown Ale 5.0% ABV
Kingsdown Ale is the strongest of our regular beers but is a brother to 3B as it comes from the same mash. It retains a strong character of its own, however, with its rich colour, ripe fruit ‘nose’ and that traditional Arkell’s hopiness. You can taste the malt too, along with a bitter-sweet finish and fruit notes. ‘Kingsdown’, which is named after the area of Upper Stratton where the brewery is situated, was originally brewed as a special beer to commemorate Swindon Town Football Club’s League Cup triumph in 1969.
