tasting notes

A light, well-balanced Pale Ale with a floral and malty aroma. With gentle carbonation to cleanse the palate, a smooth citrus and hoppy finish makes it an incredibly refreshing and easy drinking beer


Our story

Empress Ale was originally created to be an easy drinking beer that was the perfect accompaniment with food (especially spiced cuisine). It was born from the founder’s mission to provide some of his favourite restaurants with a British-made, quality craft beer that not only complemented the dishes he loved the most, but also provided an alternative to the big branded beers so commonly listed in restaurants.

After months and months of testing, tasting, tweaking, working with chefs, restaurateurs and award winning brewers – Empress Ale was born! Taking inspiration from both British and Indian heritage, Empress Ale is a showcase for modern UK-inspired products. Now, after establishing itself within the beer market, Empress is seen as the perfect beer for any occasion, with its easy drinking nature and eye-catching design.


Fine dining & gastro

Empress Ale’s reputation has spread far and wide within F&B, and it is now available in some of the finest Michelin starred restaurants, gastro pubs and up-and-coming eateries. Whether on trade or off trade, we work directly with our clients and through our key drinks distributors up and down the country.
