Under the watchful eye of Archchancellor Ridcully, himself an eager amateur brewer, the Discworld micro-brewing industry is enjoying a bit of a heyday. Combining flavours and styles from all over the worlds, these taster boxes of Discworld Ales are the perfect introduction.

Hand-crafted in the Unseen University Boathouse Brewery by some of the finest underground (literally, in the cellars) brewers in Ankh Morpork, these are the first official Discworld Ales. Featuring a robust array of IPAs, Oatmeal Stout, a couple of IPAs and a refreshing Golden Ale, they’ll look fine in any Fantasy Fiction fan’s fridge.

Due to overwhelming (and slightly terrifying) demand from bands of devoted Discworld fans; the much sought-after Heritage Pack has now been reinstated – nostalgic fictional ales for all!

Already beloved by the City Watch and the numerous local Guilds; these two collectable ale sets are an absolute must for lovers of all things Terry Pratchett. Or anyone just looking for some uniquely delicious beers (developed by student wizards, dwarf labourers and Fourecks locals).

Original Collection:
  • Hix's Darkside (Oatmeal Stout)
      7%. A rounded yet robust oatmeal stout. Complex malt character with a multitude of flavours. A smooth sweetness from the abundance of oats gives this beer its style.
  • Bledlow's Silence (IPA)
      5.5%. A classic style IPA. Simcoe and Chinook hops work in perfect harmony to provide an aroma of tropical citrus fruits and resinous pine, leading to intense grapefruit and a pleasant bitterness.
  • Modo's Midden (Golden Ale)
      4.5%. An honest, earthy and refreshing golden ale with a classic aroma of cedar and herbs. A light lemon/grapefruit flavour develops under the cedar, leaving a well-rounded taste in the mouth.
  • Bugarup Blondy (Fourecks IPA)
      4%. A refreshing blonde ale with a delicate bitterness makes this a truly quaffable beer. Fresh lemon and pine are present, with delightful apricot and melon flavours leave a sweet but crisp hoppiness in the mouth.
Heritage Collection:
  • Invalid's Restorative
      6.5%. A deep golden ale, brewed by golems who can resist the temptations of its strength.
  • Black Hogswatch Stout
      3.7%. The brewmasters of Dread and Ebon invite you to sample Black Hogswatch, created from a secret recipe generations old.
  • Ridcully's Revenge
      5%. Premium Bitter. Ridcully's Revenge is a full strength mahogany coloured beer, which has a moreishness typical of a beer possessing the fine balance of pronounced hop bitterness & aroma against a natural malty sweetness, creating a deceivingly drinkable beer.

Customer Reviews

My dad absolutely loved these - his only issue was whether to drink them - or put them up on show! He finally decided to drink them, and as a big fan of 'real ales' he really enjoyed them! Perfect gift for any Terry Pratchett fan... or an Ale Fan!

Our suppliers have had major issues with the demand for these and we have spoken to them about getting them out a lot quicker than they were. We have spoken to the supplier about your order and they have assured us that these will be out to you by the 21st. Once again we are very sorry for the delays in this!

Andy Allen - 19th December 2012
Delivery took ages, was suppose to be a birthday gift but was 10days late :( so will now have to a Christmas gift. I love the packaging and the labels on the bottles can't wait for my dad to open it. The only thing is it needs better dividers for inside the presentation box as the boxes slightly to big had to use the cardboard one for the delivery box which ruins the look slightly. But def a 5* product. Xx.
