    Real Ale Sausages


    No sniggering at the back, but I like a nice sausage. I'm also a big fan of beer as you may have concluded by now. It's not uncommon to see beer and real ale sausages, but I suspect the beer used is not often declared.

    My village is lucky to have a very good butcher's shop where they make their own sausages. We also have a brewer living in the village (although his brewery is 20 odd miles away). So put them together and you have Pork and Delapre Dark Sausages. This 4.6% old ale brewed by Great Oakley is just the right type of beer to be used in such a product. Nice, malty slightly roasty beers are just perfect to be used in such a way. It's a pretty good beer to drink as well obviously.

    Next time then you buy real ale sausages try to ascertain which beer has been used. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the time it's not even a real ale which has been used.

    Hi there

    I run www.sausagefans.com and you might be interested in my review of Bowland Beer sausages. I understand the farmer feeds the pigs the grain from the brewing process which makes the pork taste of the beer. Full review at http://www.sausagefans.com//reviewsarticle.php?id=48.

    Cheers
