Skipton-based Copper Dragon brewery is laying on the perfect Xmas treat for beer lovers in the form of a festive brew called the “Three Kings Ale”.

Three Kings is a unique, illuminating red ale which has been expertly crafted by Copper Dragon’s brewers using selected two-row malts from Bavaria to give the drinker an authentic taste of Christmas ‘German Style’. It boasts a complex mixture of orange, grapefruit and pineapple fruity notes balanced with a malty sweetness rounded off with a subtle hop aroma

Copper Dragon MD Steve Taylor commented: “We are celebrating another successful year with a speciality ale that reflects well on the brilliant Bavarian brewing techniques that have come to define Copper Dragon’s hand crafted cask ales.

“It’s a limited run ale that will be available in selected pubs across the region and initial feedback suggests it will perform well as a winter beer,” added Steve.

Established in 2002, Skipton-based Copper Dragon supplies its hand crafted Best Bitter, Golden Pippin, Scots 1816, Challenger IPA, Fred Trueman Ale and Black Gold cask ales to over 2000 pubs across the UK as well as major supermarkets and foreign markets as far afield as Australia and Russia.
