Orbit Beers x Anspach & Hobday Collab - 1861 Running Porter

Anspach and Hobday and Orbit Beers


We've partnered with our pals at Anspach & Hobday to brew a limited edition 1861 Running Porter. Brewed specifically for 'Woodfest 2022' which celebrates traditional beers served from wooden casks.

This full-bodied Running Porter is dark, walnut brown with a frothy tan head. It presents aromas of malted milk biscuits, chocolate, and hazelnut, with a hint of freshly cut grass from the addition of UK Chinook and Bullion hops. Velvety malts, milk chocolate, and caramel sweetness on the palate, with a soft bitter finish and light carbonation.

SPBW Woodfest 2022

Woodfest 2022 is organised by 'The Society for The Preservation of Beers from the Wood' who celebrate traditional beer styles served from wooden casks. The aim of the society is to stimulate the brewing and encourage the drinking of traditional draught beer, drawn direct from the cask by gravity, by a hand pump, or by other methods approved by the National Executive Committee (this includes bottle conditioned beer). Although the Society does not specifically campaign for the use of wooden casks for beer dispense, it supports and encourages breweries and pubs that use them and coopers that produce them.

It is the only beer festival in the country that serves all its real ale exclusively from wooden casks.

The 3rd Woodfest will be held between Wednesday 25th to Saturday 28th May 2022 at the Turk’s Head, St Margarets, Twickenham.
