King brews all its beers in Bury St Edmunds, where ale has been a feature
of life since at least as far back as 1086. But we've taken the
traditional art of brewing to new heights, producing what is now the
finest range of cask ales in the country. Our beers are as much at home in
city centre nightspots as they are in the cosy lounge of the village pub;
we've taken the traditional craft of brewing and turned it in to an art
form. No other UK brewer is as committed to, or dedicated to, cask ale.
Now, this wonderful world of ale is at your fingertips, we'll be whetting your appetite for Abbot Ale, tempting your
tastebuds to try Greene King IPA and tickling your fancy for an Old
Ale. A Divine Pint.
King's flagship brand is Abbot Ale, described by top beer writer Michael
Jackson as "one of the true characters of the beer world". It's
strong, robust and full of flavour - a wonderful ambassador for real ale.
Greene King first brewed Abbot Ale during the 1950's and its popularity
has never waned. Indeed, it was recently named as one of the top 10 cask
ales that licensees would most like to stock. As well as gracing the bar
of thousands of pubs up and down the country, Abbot Ale is also available
from supermarkets and off licences in cans and bottles to drink at home.

They're enduring, witty, and a little irreverent.
