Once Bittern - October seasonal

October 2023

Once Bittern October seasonal 

As the days get shorter and the air cooler, our latest seasonal is sure to provide the bite you need to welcome the Halloween month.

Introducing Woodforde’s Brewery’s Once Bittern.

This traditional bitter combines five malts and four hops to provide a seasonal treat – and no tricks – for people’s palates.

Once Bittern is crafted using Norfolk’s own Maris Otter Pale, Caramalt, Crystal and Red Crystal malts. The malts are blended with some of the finest hops around the world including English Goldings and Slovenian Savinjskis. The final product is then injected with a grape and gooseberry flavour courtesy of New Zealand’s Motueka and Nelson Sauvin hops.

The 4% traditional bitter is the perfect option for punters to enjoy as they embrace the autumn. Its rich spice and citrus fruit aroma complement the sweet flavour and tones of citrus.

Once Bittern has become a popular seasonal in the Woodforde’s calendar, named after the bird commonly found on the Norfolk Broads, while also nodding to Halloween.

Our Brewing Manager, Bruce Ash, is a keen advocate of the traditional bitter, too.

He said: “Once Bittern is the perfect way to welcome in the autumn months. Its spiced aroma and sweet flavours create a delicious finish whether you’re having one or multiple pints.

“As moreish as the sweets at Halloween, this traditional beer is sure to be a hit among your customers.”

Once Bittern is available to stock throughout the whole of October – so be sure to get your order in before it’s too late.

As a special treat, Woodforde’s Brewery will be offering a second seasonal later this month. It will be announced in due course and available from 16th October, so be sure to keep an eye out.
