OGs of old-school beers

Post by Northern Brewer » Fri Nov 01, 2019 12:51 pm

Wasn't quite sure where to put this, but Ed Wray has dug up a beer festival programme from 1990, which lists the OG of the beers but not their ABV.

So if you ever wondered what the OG of Old Growler (1.055), Brakspear Mild (1.030) or Gales HSD (1.051) were then wonder no more....

Gales HSD ? Must be a typo

I would really like to go to that beer festival! I could have enjoy pint of Gales Bitter again! Also, approve of all that mild. I don’t really remember much of it about when I moved on from lager in the early 2000s, but maybe I wasn’t looking for it and I have not been to a beer festival in a long time!
