Craft Beer Review: Dockey from Tring Brewery Company

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's craft beer review is Dockey from Tring Brewery Company.

Share It!

We get a lot of Tring beers in our favourite local as you can probably tell with this being the third one this month along with Moongazing and Ridgeway. Dockey is dark red toasty session bitter. It is quite malty with coffee cake and cherry flavours. I really enjoyed this one from Tring. It had a warm complexity.

You might be wondering about the name and the clip. British craft brewery beer names often come from local history, events, and places. Many British craft breweries also do what you would call monthly beers. They come out with a new beer for each month of the year. These will be one offs for that particular year. I have had a couple from Mighty Oak you can read about here and here.

The monthly beers will usually follow a theme for the year. Last year Tring did a series named after birds. This year the beers are named after local woodlands. Dockey Wood is a woodland near the village of Tring itself that is famous for its spring display of wild bluebells.

The Beer in Review is a blog about beer. Mostly British beer because that is where I live. I post a review every week day. Make sure you check in on Friday which is when I reveal BEER. OF THE. WEEK!
