5.0% Boldly tropical West Coast IPA
The Portland Collection has an astonishing compendium of art and books collected by generations of the family at Welbeck. One of the most famous works is The English Atlas, 1680, a beautiful collection of hand drawn and coloured maps created for King James II.
This American West Coast IPA showcases the best New World hops, bringing both piney resinous and bold tropical flavours, which are balanced with English malted barley.
4.1% Crisp and lightly floral Continental pale
The Victorian 5th Duke of Portland was renowned for creating an extensive network of underground passages and rooms beneath the Welbeck estate. Many of these structures were lit through clever use of skylights rather than just lamplight.
Our Skylight is the palest of beers, brewed with crisp British-grown lager malt. The continental hops used make this a bright and fresh lager-style beer with light floral and grassy tones.
3.9% Auburn ale with hints of caramel & walnut
Red Feather takes its inspiration from the emblem of Welbeck and its crossed red feathers, which represent pride in the estate’s heritage and entrepreneurial spirit.
Our Red Feather is a robust auburn ale. Plenty of crystal malt gives this beer a rich colour and combination of bold walnut and bitter-sweet caramel flavours.
3.7% Session IPA with a bright citrus flavour
Georgiana Cavendish (1757-1806) was the Duchess of Devonshire over at Chatsworth House, and related to the family at Welbeck by marriage. The Portland Collection holds a beautiful portrait of the illustrious Georgiana, a fashion icon and real socialite of her time. Ever the party girl, Georgiana was loved for her kindness and generosity and was the centre of attention at every gathering.
This highly drinkable platinum-blonde beer has a bright, crisp flavour reminiscent of lime zest and grapefruit. We think this would have been Georgiana’s beer of choice, keeping her company late into the night.
