I’m a beer writer writing an article on fictional beers and I’m looking for your expertise and collective knowledge about Shires.
From what I understand it’s the only beer sold at the Bull. The bull was originally a brewer owned pub owned by Southampton Breweries before being bought out as a Free House in 1959.
Do we know if Shires is a Southampton brewery beer, or has it only been sold since it became a free house?
Also is there ever anything mentioned as to what style of beer it is? I’d guess an ale but from everything I can read the specific style is never mentioned, is this right?
Thanks for any help you can give me!
