About this real ale

Big Geoff

In 1978, Geoff Capes claimed gold for Shot Put, throwing himself into the history books and the hearts of the nation. To mark this defining moment in UK athletics, Butcombe Brewery have created a beer that’s sure to win some gold itself.

Tasting Notes

Big Geoff is as traditional as it gets, this English Ale has quite the respectable alcoholic strength. With its deep brown colour, malt and English Noble hops, aromas of dried fruit and earthy, herbal notes, it’s a rich, sumptuous malt beer to be slowly savoured.
