St Austell Brewery is one of Cornwall’s greatest treasures, and one of their long-forgotten recipes has recently been rediscovered. The new drink will be available to taste from 17 March onwards and is made following a 100-year-old stout recipe.
The launch will be made just in time to celebrate St Patrick’s Day, where people all across the globe will be toasting with Ireland’s most famous stout: Guinness. This rediscovered drink will also be celebrating Cornwall’s Celtic heritage as well as the famous Irish holiday, and reviews of the St Austell Brewery’s 1913 Cornish Stout have already been positive, describing it as a “full-bodied beer with a balanced sweetness”.
The stout will be previewed on 16 March at the Beer and Mussel Festival in St Merryn, providing the perfect opportunity for those enjoying a holiday in English country cottages to be one of the first in 100 years to try a taste of the revived Cornish Stout.
