OUR DISTINCTIVE ALES

Henry's Ait

Thames Ditton Island (Ait) began life in and around the 1500s as a mound of spoil turfed up in the Thames by the infamous Henry VIII to optimise his commute to Westminster. As shacks began to appear on the uninhabited Ait it transitioned into a notorious spot for Henry and his merry men to enjoy raucous sessions enroute home from their busy days in the city.  Today, now connected by the iconic suspension bridge, the island is home to many good folk of the idyllic village of Thames Ditton.

Ace Pilsner

Our Ace Pilsner has been inspired by the AC Ace sports car which was produced by AC Cars of Thames Ditton, England, from 1953 to 1963. The car was raced at Le Mans in 1957 and 1958. In the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans, Ted Whiteaway and John Turner drove their AC Ace Bristol, registration 650BPK, to the finish, claiming top honours for the 2,000cc GT class and seventh overall behind six 3 litre cars.

Limited Edition Stag Porter

Screaming Queen

The infamous ghost at Hampton Court Palace is said to be the “Screaming Queen”, Henry VIII’s fifth wife Catherine Howard. The pair were married in July 1540, however within twelve months of their marriage, rumours began circulating that she was being unfaithful to Henry and as a result he had her beheaded. It is said that prior to her execution, she broke free from the guards and ran along the Haunted Gallery screaming for Henry to pardon her. Her ghost is said to wander the Palace to this day, still screaming for mercy.

Screaming Queen IPA 5%

Our Californian style IPA is brewed with a combination of US and new-world hops for a distinctive taste experience. The late dry hopping with US Cascade and Simcoe creates a taste of the tropics on the palate with a satisfying bitter twist.

Cheeses: Milder blue cheeses such as Gorgonzola or Cambozola.

Desserts: Ginger spiced truffles, carrot cake, chocolate

Colour: Pale gold
