Ringwood Brewery Old Thumper
British Beer & Ales
Ringwood's most iconic beer was first brewed in late 1979 without a name. A competition in the local press inspired Joe Leedham from Broadstone, Dorset to come up with a suitable suggestion.
It has won many awards but is best remembered for being voted Champion beer of Britain by CAMRA in 1988.
Peppery, spicy aroma with hint of apples. Luscious balance of grain and hop in the mouth, bitter sweet finish with delicate fruit notes. A warm, rounded yet surprisingly delicate pale strong beer.
