Raise your swordSlay the dragon

Legend says that when St. George ventured to save the princess from the dragon he became injured and sought protection under a mythical orange tree which both healed and gave him power.  

When the dragon attacked St George raised his sword, named Ascalon and plunged it deep into the dragon, slaying the beast.

To honour St George and the tree that saved him, Ascalon is a traditional chestnut ale brewed with British grown Challenger and Admiral hops.
