Core Beers - St. Bibiana

St. Bibiana

An Oakham classic brewed using the four German noble hop varieties.

St.Bibiana (first brewed in 2001) was named after the Patron Saint of hangovers!

We’ve a feeling that we may have contributed to one of two of those over the years, so St. Bibiana just had to be included in our “Oakham 30 Years” retrospective.

Bronze in colour with robust hop flavours and a delicate bitterness.

Deliciously drinkable for its 5.5% ABV!

Oakham’s Cask Aged beers command a lot of the brewing team’s care and attention and these award-winning beers prove that it’s time well spent!

The process starts with great beer being brewed in the usual Oakham way, but at the end of the initial fermentation, yeast cells are removed from the beer.

This is because yeast gets tired and a bit bad tempered after working hard in the fermentation process and this can cause undesirable aromas and flavours.

So fresh yeast is introduced to complete the fermentation – a process known as “Krausening” and the method which ensures that Oakham’s Cask Aged beers taste so smooth and drinkable.

The beer is then racked in casks and cellared like a fine wine to allow development of the remarkable flavours and conditioning that characterize the Oakham Cask Aged range.

All of the Oakham Cask Aged beers are aged for at least 6 weeks – usually for much longer.
