Old Tom Original Beer 33cl 8.5°
Old Tom Original is a brown beer and has been awarded several times. It is Robinsons brewery's best seller. This Ale beer has a strong character and a Sherry brandy colour. Rich and tasty, it is a classic. Thanks to its roasted nuts, ripe malts, peppery hops and a hint of smoked chocolate, this brown beer has the perfect balance.
The small Robinsons brewery is known for its brown beers typically British since 1849. It has known a world wide success with the Trooper Iron Maiden beer.
In 1838, William Robinson buys the Unicorn Inn, from which is derived the logo of the current brewery, in Stockport, near Manchester, northwest of England.
His eldest son, George, is in charge and starts serving his own beer in 1849. Ten years later, Frederic, George’s younger brother develops beer production as well in a warehouse behind the inn. In the 1860’s, the brewery sells beer in many neighbouring pubs, and the family business acquire them to control the quality of the drinks served.
Frederic’s son, William, keeps expanding his father’s work and so his children John and Cecil after him. From generation to generation, the business stays in the family, and now counts 330 pubs in the northwest counties of England and throughout Wales. 13.3 million pints of beer are brewed each year.
