Our signature beer has its beginning in the great taste of European style lagers. Natural yeasts, locally gown malt and hops provide for the aromatic flavor that won't confuse the palate. This recipe originated from the East Anglia region of the United Kingdom and was brought across the pond for your taste pleasure.

Brewed in the time honored German ale tradition of Köln, Germany, 67 Alaska is very pale with a mild though assertive flavor from noble-pedigree hops from the Hallertau region round out the aroma and sweetness of Continental malts.

Malt: Weyermann Pils, The Swaen Hell
Hops: Hallertau Tradition, Hallertau Mittelfruh
IBU: 23

Hop-forward though balanced, Prodigal, the first beer ever introduced by Royal Docks, is a West-Coast style American IPA through and through. Prodigal delivers a surplus of summery floral and citrus notes throughout the nose, flavour and finish and a delicate malt character thanks to true-blue American ingredients throughout.
Prodigal is a simple brew, really. The malt bill is ninety percent American Pale malt with the balance made up of a light American crystal malt. The kettle is charged with hops three times during the boil; Nugget for bittering and a combination of Citra and Amarillo late in the boil and at the end.
One of our house yeast strains lends the beer a crisp, clean west-coast bitterness and aroma, but most of the character is realized post-fermentation. Once the beer has reached terminal gravity, a very healthy dry hop charge – more than half the total hops – is added to the beer. Twelve hours later, the beer is rapidly chilled to 1°C and the hops are allowed to steep at that temperature for 6 days.

The Parable of the Prodigal Brew

Early in our journey building a brewery that paid homage to our affinity for the uniquely English pub culture but at the same time embraced modern American expectations for design and taste, it was mentioned by a friend that we were, in a sense, Britain’s prodigal son come home.

It occurred to us right away that the perfect beer to illustrate and embody the idea of the studied American twist on English culture was the IPA. India Read Less

Born in America but with a soul recalling a distant English ancestry, Tanglefoot is one of the flagship India Pale Ales from the Royal Docks Brewing Company.
Tanglefoot is an American IPA in that it is a decidedly hoppier cousin to the historical British beers from which the style’s name is borrowed. The beer features a piney and resinous nose with a pleasant, rounded bitterness from healthy doses of American Nugget, Cascade and Mosaic hops.
Tanglefoot reveals its storied English heritage as it offsets the massive hop charge with a full bodied palate and sturdy malt backbone thanks to the British-grown, floor-malted Maris Otter and Harrington barley; prized throughout the world for their superior flavour and aromatics.
The Tanglefoot Legend:
The 12th Century poet and priest, La3amon was the first to chronicle the Arturian tradition. He is also the source of the legend of Pendragon’s ales.

Original Middle English:
Beore wes iworht in Aualun
mið wiȝlel-fulle craften
to don ure vniwinen wa

Æft he likeð þan voxe
driueð wod and wild
ȝeond dalef & ȝeond dunes
bi-læfde mid heore tungen
hoe lette baðe ablenden & teȝen
heom lette fæt to-dælden dome
La3amon

Translation:
A beer wrought in Avalon
with magic crafted
to do our enemies woe

driving them like a fox
mad and wild
over hills and dales
leaving them with tongues
both tied and blind
and their feet tangled dumb Read Less
