Our famous five permanently available cask beers form the heart and soul of the Oakham range.
Brewed with the finest ingredients to recipes perfected over the years by our brewers and underpinned by our uncompromising devotion to quality and consistency.
JHB, Inferno, Citra®, Bishops Farewell and Green Devil IPA.
Cask Legends All !
Our Seasonal Beers feature a mix of past favourites back by popular demand and brand new beers that give our brewers the chance to really show their paces.
New hop varieties discovered on our hop sourcing trips around the world feature strongly, along with some weird but wonderful hop combinations and innovative styles.
And remember, “when they’re gone, they’re gone” so keep an eye on our release date updates and get your orders in early!
Our highly regarded Cask Aged beers demand a lot of our brewing team’s time and attention.
But we think that it’s time very well spent.
Beers of supremely smooth drinkability for their high ABV’s, they are cellared like fine wines to allow full development of aromas, flavours and conditioning.
Kegs, Bottles and Cans
We made our name as a pioneering cask ale brewery and one of the very first to introduce punchy New World hopped beers to the UK.
And we’ve carried that spirit through to our Keg, Bottled and Canned beers – contemporary beers brewed with the skill and experience gained in 30 years of innovative craft brewing.
The Oakham Way
When Oakham Ales was founded back in 1993 the brewing world was different!
We weren’t the first brewery to introduce light, hoppy beers to the UK but we were amongst the very first to pioneer the use of hops from the USA and the New World.
But it didn’t end there! Ever more trailblazing beers continue to evolve through our “drinks good … must be good” strategy.
Back in 2010 we were the first UK brewery to brew a beer with 100% Citra® hops back and Oakham Citra® is not only our top seller but also an acknowledged UK brewing trailblazer.
JHB, Inferno, Bishops Farewell and the multi award-winning Green Devil IPA join Citra® in the current Oakham core range and are supplemented by monthly cask seasonals and specials and an ever-changing line-up of strong cask aged beers.
Welcome to Oakham Ales and the exuberant styles that make our award-winning beers so distinctive!
