As a young tourist in 1968 I fell in love with the now discontinued Phoenix Ale. Would anyone have a recipe for this wonderful ale? I'm a homebrewer and ran my own store and taught classes here in California.


Ron Pattinson has a recipe in his "Lets Brew" book. I'm a bit young to have ever sampled this one -



You probably have this already and ac13 has referred to Ron Pattinson who is mentioned here also...

(And Welcome!)


James, I joined the forum last week and when I saw your post I knew what I would use as an online name. Back in the day Phoenix was my go to bottle when in a pub when stocked  :P . I snagged the three last bottles as take aways from a local after they stopped brewing it. Attached is a bottle I have had in the shed since the '90s  :-X You cannot see attachments on this board.


Crack it open and taste it. You might be surprised. I recently had a bottle of beer that was 13 years past its BBE date and it was absolutely fine. Tasted rather nice, in fact. Still had loads of carbonation.
