Multi-award winning, bottle-conditioned legends. Family owned and brewing from a 10 barrel plant, Durham make a staggering range of superb brews, from low abv Pale ales right through to knock-you-round- the- back-of-the-head supercharged stouts. They've casually tossed aside the temptation to brew in bulk instead focussing on brewing to an exquisite standard. All are bottle-conditioned and we've never once had a bad one - quite an achievement given the volatility of true bottle-conditioning. Isn't it odd that so many beers are named after military things? Anyway, here's another one...Named after the 106th Brigade of the East India Trading Company which then became the Durham Light Infantry. Brewed with pale Maris Otter malts, English Goldings and a peppery finish. Durham brewery suggest it's a perfect match with Steak &Chips but there's a large amount of sediment too, so beware!

Ode to pale ales of yesteryear
Review by
Bottle conditioning and takes an age to settle in the glass. Cloudy yellow with big frothy head. Mild citrus aroma comes straight through. Initial taste is a refreshing sharp hoppy hit – tasty! Not a bad East IPA with a welcome higher-than-normal ABV. A decent beer.
Strong & Bitter
Review by
A proper British style IPA.

Nothing citrusy, but lots of strong flavours.
Nice for some
Review by
If you're a fan of old style English IPAs then this is for you. Strong, spicy flavour. Hops lack fruitiness.
Real IPA
Review by
An IPA traditionally had a high ABV and, though some shun this nowadays, this beauty carries on that style well. Packed with flavour and a punch
