Comforting and sweetYou've got to TRY this

Our rugby inspired beer has become synonymous with the Six Nations tournament. First brewed back in 2014, Tighthead has been the drink of choice for many and returns to continue the celebrations.

Proudly supporting the Leicester Tigers for many years we have a huge passion for rugby and its supporters, so we decided to brew a beer for the fans to help them through the cold February games with a true winter warmer. 

A ruby ale brewed with a blend of Challenger, Saaz and Cascade hops. This beer offers a blend of complementing fruit and delicate roasted caramel flavours, with a comforting spicy, chocolate aroma and sweet finish.

Look out for our three foxes looking for their next challenger at the bar!
