Dorothy's Blissful Beer

A new year and a new beer for Dorothy Goodbody!

Following on from the success of Dorothy Goodbody’s Christmas Cracker in 2011, Wye Valley Brewery has just launched a brand new beer for 2012, Dorothy Goodbody’s Blissful Brown Ale.

Dorothy describes this 4.6% abv beer as having a deeply fruity aroma, leading to a rich, full flavour with raisin and malt sweetness. Available in bottle conditioned format only, it will be on sale in off licenses across the region.

Vernon Amor, Wye Valley Brewery managing director comments ‘Right now it feels like we are awash with very pale extremely bitter beers brewed with imported hops. We thought it was time to brew a dark fruity beer made with locally grown hops to highlight the classic British ale style.’

Brewed exclusively with local hops, Target, Fuggles, Challenger & Goldings this makes for a truly blissful beer.

Herefordshire brewer resists pub closure trend

Wye Valley Brewery is delighted to announce it has purchased the Old Pelican in Gloucester.

With an average of 16 pubs closing every week, this spells good news for discerning beer drinkers in Gloucester. The Old Pelican is a traditional city centre pub, with an enclosed garden, ideally located just off Cathedral Close.

The pub will be closed for a short time whilst some refurbishment is carried out. When it opens, it will sell the full range of Wye Valley Brewery beers, with popular brands such as HPA, Butty Bach and the Dorothy Goodbody range.

Said Vernon Amor Managing Director of Wye Valley Brewery ‘At Wye Valley Brewery we are passionate about pubs, we believe they play an important role in our communities as they are the outlet for our national drink, cask conditioned beer. We are excited by the prospect of reviving the fortunes one of Gloucester’s historic pubs’
