Beer Pick: Try Wild Heaven Townsend’s Landlord Ale this weekend

Inspired by the opening of Brick Store Pub’s new Cask Bar, I conspired with Wild Heaven brewmaster Eric Johnson to brew a British-style cask-conditioned ale.

The result was a clone recipe with very expensive British ingredients that rips-off Timothy Taylor’s Landlord Ale — a Brit brew with a crazy cult following.

And with that, Townsend’s Landlord Ale is this week’s Beer Pick.

Profile

Wild Heaven Townsend’s Landlord Ale is a British pale ale (or best bitter, if you will) that’s brewed with Baird’s Maris Otter malt, Burton yeast, and Styrian Golding and Willamette hops. At 4% alcohol, it’s crisp, clean, and balanced, with a bit of a biscuit malt character, a hint of citrus, and a spicy-earthy-herbaceous quality.

Pair with

Not surprisingly, British pale ales make a good match for pub grub, including, sandwiches, burgers, sausages and, of course, fish and chips.
