Taking its name from the 11 parishes of Barbados, 10 of which are named after Saints, the 10 Saints Brewery was conceived in 2009 with the aim of combining the rum heritage of Barbados with a brilliant, refreshing lager. A Professor of Brewing at the Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, and 10 Saints Master Brewer, Ian Herok, has spent years of product development and research into the oak ageing of beer to create this unique, premium lager from Barbados. The production of 10 Saints is a slow and complex one, with the gradual infusion of flavours from wood to beer, a delicate process which creates 10 Saint's deep flavour and unique character. The barrels used in this process were originally used to age bourbon in Kentucky, before being shipped to Barbados for ageing rum. This small batch craft lager uses two varieties of hop, namely Galena, a bittering hop used extensively in the USA, and Styrian Goldings (ex Slovenia), which provides enhanced bitter properties and a mild hop background aroma. During the production process water is filtered through coral, before undergoing some reverse osmosis and the inclusion of a highly flocculent bottom fermenting yeast. The following oak ageing in rum casks results in a full flavoured, golden premium beer with distinctive but rounded notes of rum, malt, vanilla, tropical spice and toasted oak.
The proven existence of Pisco can be traced back to 1871, and its original Appellation of Origin was reserved and approved by law in 1931. Pisco ABA is produced in the heart of the Elqui Valley, a long narrow oasis that winds its way through the Andes. A boutique type of distillate made by the Aguirre family. Produced with double distillation in copper pot stills. You can drink Pisco ABA in a delicious Pisco Sour (Chileans' favourite cocktail), or mixed with Schweppes, Tonic Water or Ginger Ale (called chuflay in Chile), or simply neat on the rocks.

First introduced in 1975, Liberty Ale is brewed with a top-fermenting ale yeast, responsible for many of the subtle flavours and characteristics. Dry-hopping imparts a unique aroma to the ale. Liberty Ale is brewed strictly according to traditional brewing methods, and, like all Anchor Brewing Company products, uses only natural ingredients - water, malted barley, fresh whole hops and yeast. A special top-fermenting ale yeast is used during fermentation and is responsible for many of Liberty Ale's subtle flavours and characteristics. Carbonation is produced by an entirely natural process called 'bunging,' which produces champagne-like bubbles. Dry-hopping (adding fresh hops to the brew during aging), imparts a unique aroma to the ale. It is a process rarely used in the USA today.

'The classic of American brewing tradition since 1896, Anchor Steam has a bronze colour with a thick creamy head. The palate is full and malty with a beautiful bitter hop aroma - a unique beer universally recognised as a world classic that traces back to the Gold Rush era. San Francisco's famous Anchor Steam, the classic of American brewing tradition since 1896, is virtually handmade, with an exceptional respect for the ancient art of brewing. The deep amber colour, thick creamy head, and rich flavour all testify to Anchor's traditional brewing methods. Anchor Steam is unique, for their brewing process has evolved over many decades and is like no other in the world. A San Francisco original since 1896 Anchor Steam derives its unusual name from the 19th century when 'steam' seems to have been a nickname for beer brewed on the West Coast of America under primitive conditions and without ice. The brewing methods of those days are a mystery and, although there are many theories, no one can say with certainty why the word 'steam' came to be associated with beer. For many decades Anchor alone has used this quaint name for its unique beer. In modern times, 'Steam' has become a trademark of Anchor Brewing.
Why not try Japan's favourite dark beer? Brewed in Osaka, Asahi Black is made from three different roasted malts. This gives it a rich, nutty flavour and makes it incredibly smooth-drinking. Unlike other, more bitter dark beers and stouts, it's brewed in a process called bottom fermentation, which gives it a subtle, sweet edge and smooth 5% abv. All of which makes for a truly warming experience.
