Winter Royal 2018
16 November 2018
Good news, we got more Winter Royal from the brews than
expected, this means that it will be available for a couple more
days than first thought, maybe until the 22nd or 23rd December. We
will also be able to offer the beer in mini barrels, available
During the busy Christmas week, we can only run with four
beers. With Winter Royal available for a little longer it is likely
that Gold will only be available in mini barrels until Winter Royal
runs out when it will return in full stocks. IPA, Peacemaker and
Roasted Nuts are the other three beers.
We are brewing Winter Royal again this
year and due to its popularity, we are brewing twice the
It will be available from pubs, bars etc. and
in our brewery shop from the 1st of December.
In the shop we have more stock than ever
before, and we think it will last for a few weeks, predicting it
running out sometime in the week commencing 17th December. For
exact timings it'll be worth keeping an eye on our website and
social channels at the end of November.
The limited-edition beer will be available in
fresh draught sizes; 1,3 litre bottles and 5 litre tins. We would

If you'd like to have a pint in a pub, you
will be able to track which pubs and bars are stocking Winter Royal

to, not who is currently serving it, so please contact them to
check they are serving it before making a special trip.

point during the last week of Christmas that we just can't run with
more than 4 different ales in order to maintain quality. We will
therefore release Winter Royal earlier in December.
The Christmas week beer selection will be: IPA, Peacemaker, Gold and Roasted Nuts.

Before Rebellion even existed as a brewery,
Winter Royal was brewed by the Wethereds Brewery in Marlow,
becoming one of their flagship beers until the brewery closed in
1988. In December 2016 we got hold of the recipe and brewed a
batch, reviving this famous beer after a 28 year hiatus.
