Citra T90 Cask

LIMITED EDITION NEW BATCH AVAILABLE!

Our December seasonal beer “Below Zero” has sold out super quickly so we’ve also got a new batch of the wonderful Citra T90 Cask (4.6%) available.

It’s a limited edition brew so pre-order now!

Brewed with powerful T90 hop pellets, Citra T90 explodes with citrus and tropical fruit hop flavours before a moreish bitter finish.

Cask CitraT90 has been brewed to the same punchy recipe as our Citra T90 cans and kegs which have had such a good reception over the last couple of years.

It’s fined, but will throw a slight natural haze when racked and tapped.

2023 Cask Aged Range!

2023 WILL SEE A LANDMARK BIRTHDAY FOR OAKHAM ALES.

AND TO CELEBRATE OUR 30TH ANNIVERSARY, THE 2023 OAKHAM CASK AGED AND SEASONAL LINE-UPS WILL FEATURE A MIXTURE OF EXCITING NEW BEERS AND REVISITED OAKHAM CLASSICS.

We reckon to have brewed just shy of 300 different beers since the first batch of JHB was brewed in September 1993 and to have won around 250 major awards over the period.

So it was no easy task to select the very best of them.

But we think that we’ve come up with a fantastic 2023 list – one that pays tribute to the foresight of our founder John Wood and celebrates the pioneering spirit of Oakham legend John Bryan and his brewing teams.

British IPA Collab!

Ed Sharman and his brewing team were delighted to welcome Jon Stringer of hop factors Charles Faram to the brewery on 13 October.

Their mission?

To brew a brand new Oakham Cask Aged IPA using the best of UK sourced hops.

We’ll be ageing the beer in cask for at least 2 months prior to release in January 2023.

Which gives us time to come up with a name for it!

Keep an eye out for further details but in the meantime, have a look at Jon’s video of the day’s brewing for further info.

SIBA Successes!

Three more awards for our beers at the recent SIBA East Beers Competition!

GOLD for Black Magic in the  “Cask Amber to Dark Speciality Beer” Category

GOLD for Green Devil IPA in the “Cask IPA” Category

SILVER for Citra in the “Cask Session IPA” Category

Oakham Lead Brewer Ed Sharman is a great lover of dark beers, Hawse Buckler being a personal favourite, so winning this category was particularly special.

“We’re legendary for our pale ales,” Ed said. “and I wanted to show that we can make fantastic beers in a range of styles. So I’m glad that my journey to the dark side hit the spot for the SIBA judges!”

Originally intended to be Oakham’s 4.5% ABV seasonal offering for October 2020, the pandemic meant that Black Magic was adapted into a 5% cask aged beer with unfiltered cans and kegs also produced.

Well received back in late 2020 despite the lockdowns, Ed brought Black Magic back this year as a cask aged beer with a revised recipe to emphasise the chocolate notes. He removed the lactose, changed the type of chocolate used and tweaked the malt and hop line-up to bring the recipe into balance.

Black Magic is aged in the cask for at least 3 months to allow the flavours to develop and to give a smooth mouthfeel.

Dark and decadent, balanced with a clean bitterness – a sumptuous autumn treat!
