Nightjar... The new name in British Stout that's on everyone's lips!
Relaunched as Nightjar in September to 250 publicans at the brewery in Stoke Lacy, Herefordshire, the newly branded keg stout complements the other market leading brands in our portfolio. Established in 1985, by ex-Guinness brewer Peter Amor, Wye Valley Brewery boasts a wide range of beers that include popular brands Butty Bach, HPA and 1985, which can be found in pubs across the West Midlands and South Wales.
Our bold ambitions for Nightjar are for it to become the British stout brand of choice, rivalling other stouts that currently dominate the category. The name Nightjar is a reference to the nocturnal bird that hawks for food and nests in the Wye Valley.
Nightjar is a kegged stout based on the original Dorothy Goodbody’s Wholesome Stout cask recipe dating back to 1985, when ex-Guinness alumni, Peter Amor, first began brewing his own beers at the back of the well-known watering hole, The Barrels in Hereford. As a kegged stout, Nightjar is chilled to 4°C and is nitrogenated. This makes it a very refreshing drink with a delectably creamy texture.
Thanks for watching!
