Our Artisan Premium Ale

Lionheart is a new artisan premium ale from the Brookfield Brewing Company. Lionheart is brewed to the highest modern standards of purity and quality, but the unique, secret recipe we use draws on 12th Century sources to make a beer that Richard himself might have enjoyed.

The Legend of Lionheart

Richard I of England – the Lionheart – was the inspiration for our Lionheart artisan ale. He has achieved legendary status in the English speaking world. Few British monarchs are so widely-known. Yet surprisingly few people know much about the exploits that led to this superstar status. We have exclusively commissioned renowned historian Frank McClynn to write a personal view on why Richard was such a force in the 12th Century, and why his fame continues right up to the present day.



Lionheart, our new Artisan Ale, is proudly brewed in the heart of England, and is brought to you by the Brookfield Brewing Company.

Lionheart, Brookfield’s latest venture, has a unique flavour that is the result of carefully selected ingredients. The brew uses East Kent Goldings and Challenger hops; both of which are grown in the UK and chosen for the quintessentially British aromas that traditional English hops produce. Characteristics are spicy, honey and earthy in flavour, with green tea aroma and sweet floral notes.

The hops are combined with a special blend of pale malt, Marris Otter malt and a lighter Crystal malt. The Marris Otter is a premium malt and considered the keystone malt for authentic British ale flavours, used to create a malty, full-bodied tasting ale.
