"The best things in life improve with age... Good wine, friendships and, of course, Old Tom.
Unlike other beers, Old Tom ages beautifully in the bottle (like a fine wine). Lay a bottle down and let the flavours flourish, something to look forward to!
Dubbed "The original craft beer" this dangerously drinkable legend has been in the family since 1899, when Tom, the old brewery cat, was sketched into immortality by Robinsons' Head Brewer as he waited for the ale to ferment. 120 years on and it's still the same great tasting ale, brewed to the same award-winning recipe.
Old Tom is one of the most famous strong ales in beer history and it's not just 8 out of 10 who agree. A firm favourite with traditional drinkers, craft enthusiasts and beer judges alike, Old Tom has won the industry's most prestigious awards; including World's Best Ale, World's Best Design and Champion Winter Beer of Britain.
Rich, malty and warming, Old Tom has a distinctive deep port wine finish, with bitter hops balanced by the heady aromas of dark fruit."
