BLOCKHOUSE

BEER

A chestnut-coloured Bitter. Six types of malt give a complex flavour to this British style ale which uses three different varieties of British hop in the boil.  A fourth variety of British hop is used for dry-hopping in the fermenting vessel prior to casking.

LOCAL HISTORY

Following the burning of Portsmouth during the Hundred Years' War, money was set aside in 1417 to provide protection for Portsmouth Harbour. A blockhouse was first built on the Gosport side of the harbour in 1431 after authorisation by Henry VI.​
