Beer #8: St. Peter’s Organic Ale

St. Peter’sI’d like to try a fresher sample of this in England. The first time I tried it the bottle was badly skunked. I also tasted it a few months ago at Candle 79, an all-organic and vegan restaurant in NYC. My third try was with my friend Trenton who brought a bottle to share with me yesterday at my Birthday / New Year’s Eve party. St. Peter’s Brewery uses water from their own borehole well in Bungay, Suffolk, England, malt from barley grown in nearby Norfolk, and organic New Zealand Hallertau hops. Besides being organic, its other best attribute is its cool medicine-looking bottle which is a copy of one found in Gibbstown, PA that was produced for Thomas Gerrard who kept a tidewater inn on the Delaware River circa 1770.
