Named after the former bishop of London in 1500 who was burnt at the stake for heresy. His relatives 300 years later opened a brewery called Ridleys, which was producing beer right up till 2005 when it was sold. In honour of Bishop Nicholas and his family the brewery was renamed Bishop Nick. Today Nelion Ridley takes up the mantle once more.
Virtue is a 3.8% amber ale in a 500ml bottle Packed full of crystal,centennial and comet hops that bellow grapefruit and hints of fresh tangerine. A sweet malt helps to round out the hop bitterness, leaving a balanced amber ale packed full of flavour. With a ABV of 3.8% this is a perfect beer to slurp down on a session.
