Cornish Brewery reproduces stout for first time in 100 years

A popular Cornish brewery has begun reproducing a stout it last made one century ago after the recipe was found in the company's brewing journals.

Aptly named '1913', the age old recipe found by the St Austell Brewery is tipped to be a big hit with both locals and those staying in any of the 5 star cottages in Cornwall. The name stout is believed to have originally been a name to describe the strongest beer produced by a brewery; however, the production of the once popular drink saw a huge decline during World War I after demands for rations lead to a ban on roasting malt and barley.

Cornwall is renowned for the fine collection of alcoholic drinks it produces, with enjoying a pint of beer, cider or ale in the sun seen as a popular pastime for many holidaymakers. While '1913' will likely become available in supermarkets across the UK, why not enjoy it at source during your break in Cornwall?
