Description

1849 – an iconic year for the brewing industry and now an iconic beer.

Joseph Holt’s 1849 is a dark, tempting best bitter brewed with a complex blend of choice malts and Golding hops. You’ll get an earthy, malty aroma that pours into a mahogany-amber ale. The body is refreshingly smooth with a slight nutty, toasted taste.

Winning a silver medal at the International Brewing Awards, this one’s got pedigree.

    A nice drink with great service apart from not receiving a reply to an email

  2. Mr Matt Holden (verified owner)

    A awesome brew perfect to accompany a meal with gravy.

  3. Kevin Young (verified owner)

    A very drinkable beer. Not to heavy or sweet as some darker beers can be in fact in has an interesting, almost earthy finish. I’d definitely have it again and would love to try it on draft.

    Great beer, great price, 1st time I have ordered direct from the brewery, they said 3 to 5 days, it was with me in 2 days.. would love it if they did Holts Bitter in bottles but for now, 1849 will do..

    Always Great beer and the delivery is fast. This is a darker beer but not heavy. This would partner well with any Pie dinner with gravy or on its own .
