Purity Ubu

Purity UbuNamed after the brewery's dog muse, Purity's Ubu will be one of the beers you saw in the Oz and Hugh Raise the Bar quest on telly around Christmas.

Amber in colour and full of flavour on the palate, this has a characterful hop-driven bitterness – not too much, not too little.

Great with food, be it a Caesar chicken salad, or barbecued pork or roast cod, it's just the thing to tide you through the days before spring arrives.

4.5%, from brewery direct or online, £15.50 for 8x50cl; Sainsburys, Tesco, Co-op, Majestic (mainly Midlands region); bars, pubs & clubs around the country – see stockist list.
