Real Ale

Salopian Brewery

Salopian Brewery was established on the outskirts of mediaeval Shrewsbury in 1995.  Since then the brewery has become synonymous with the production of top quality consistent beers.

Here at The Post Office Vaults we are proud to serve Salopian Oracle on a permanent basis.


Salopian Oracle

ABV: 4.0%

Colour: Straw

Style: The intention of the hop character is to be pronounced but not all encompassing, dry but not overtly bitter and a tiny hint of sweetness to add body. Its one of the most expensive of the Salopian beers to brew as it relies heavily on expensive hops from the US.





Hobsons Brewery

Hobsons Brewery is Shropshire's sustainable brewer and creator of award winning beers. Dedicated to an ethos of using the finest locally sourced ingredients teamed with sustainable technologies has produced a range of CAMRA award winning cask ale and bottled beers. Since their inception in 1993, they have grown rapidly and their beers have won many awards, including the prestigious CAMRA Beer of Britain for their popular Hobsons Mild.


Hobsons Mild

ABV: 3.2%

Colour: Rosewood

Style:CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain 2007, Hobsons Mild has a smooth character and taste notes of chocolate malt which gives this beer plenty of flavour and aroma that belies its strength. A British classic crafted to Hobsons special recipe makes this a nutty mild and despite being only 3.2% abv it's packed full of flavour."

Keg Products



Regarded as one of the finest examples of a German Pilsner. Veltins is brewed in Sauerland, near Dortmund to the German Purity Law of 1516.

Using natural spring water from its own mountain, Veltins has a superb delicate dry and clean palate with a fine carbonated body that gives a slight bitterness with a light citrus finish.



Freedom 4

4.0% abv Helles pale lager. Hopped with a combination of British First Gold and Hallertau Perle, Freedom Four has an initial sweetness that slides into a hoppy bitter finish. Mid-weight body and great smoothness ensure it's easy-drinking, while lively natural carbonation refreshes through to a crisp finish.


Freedom Stout

There are no Oysters in Oyster Stout, but the association is well established and you can now enjoy this great tasting traditional English Stout.

The unique character of Oyster Stout is brought about by fermentation with the Marston's strain of yeast. Taken from the Burton Unions, this yeast is very active and gives full attenuation of beer giving a dry clean after-palate.

English Aroma Hops, Fuggles and Goldings are added for their fruity, floral and spicy contribution to the taste with the majority of the bitterness coming from the roasted malts. The final result is a rich, dark and extremely creamy smooth stout with good character and strength.


Brewed in Bayreuth in Northern Bavaria.
Using only the finest ingredients-Mountain Spring Water, Hallertau Hops and top quality grain.

Maissels Weisse has a deep amber colour, with a delightful citric aroma and palate with a smooth dry finish


Hogans Cider

Hogans Cider is made using 100% pressed English fruit. Apples are sourced from Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire and once pressed are fermented with no sugar or apple concentrate. The cider is left to mature for several months before being bottled or sold as draught.

Hogan’s draught cider presents as bright, lightly carbonated and golden in colour. It has a pleasant distinctive apple fruit aroma with some peaty notes. Sharpness is balanced on the palate with a lot of fruit; this cider has an abundance of classic cider apple tannins and rewards with a surprising complexity for a draught cider.
