Friday 13th beer

The Lucky One!

Our fabulous and famous Friday 13th needs no introduction.  Savour the smooth, mellow, honeyed sweetness of our legendary ale.  Available from 10am on Friday 13th January in the Brewery Shop and Tap.

Friday 13th beer

Lucky for some, but don't leave it too late.  When it's gone, it's gone and you'll have to wait until October for Miles to brew some more!

Friday 13th is brewed every time this date appears in the calendar. 

It may be lucky for some, but certainly not for the 6 geese who flew over the village of Tongham on Friday 13th October 1995 and crashed straight into the main power supply to the Brewery, causing a total power cut.  The loss of power came at a critical point in the brewing process and in order not to lose the brew, the staff came up with the inspired idea of adding honey to make the beer ferment.  The resulting brew tasted so good, that ever since that fateful day, we have brewed Friday 13th whenever that date appears in the calendar.
