Hobsons Brewery, Postmans Knock 4.8%


Postman’s Knock is a beer offering an intelligent blend of complex ingredients, the rich brown beer with a smooth fine head has a very chocolately character. The combination of subtle flavour notes of vanilla, treacle and roast malt gives an initial rich sweetness leading to a velvety chocolate finish.

The beer is named in honour of Simon Evans (1895-1940). He had been badly affected by poison gas in the war and, in order to improve his health, worked as a postman, walking up to 18 miles a day. Postman’s Knock uses the finest malting barley, Maris Otter and Worcestershire Fuggles and Goldings hops.
