Yorkshire Square Alpha Papa
$12.00 – $44.00
ABV 5.2% | IBU
Beer Style: English Pale Ale
An English Pale Ale brewed with the single hop, Jester, a newer aroma hop from England. Quite a bit like Cascade but with less pine and more of a Mandarin orange profile than the typical Cascade-y grapefruit.
This beer has a tea character that ranges from green tea floral to black tea spice and earthiness.

While it is not a ‘haze bomb’ I have intentionally left it a bit cloudy to carry as much hop aroma and flavor as possible.
This started life as a collaboration brew between YSB and the North Yorkshire brewers Roosters Brewing when YSB’s head brewer interned. The name comes from a bit of bonding during the original collaboration brew over the cult British comedy character Alan Partridge, as created and played by Steve Coogan.
Alpha Papa is the name of the 2013 film in which the character is central. Single-hopped pale ale featuring the unique UK aroma hop, Jester, from boil, whirlpool, to dry-hop lending a fascinating tea and citrus quality.
Yorkshire Square Brewery
Yorkshire Square was founded in 2015 by a Yorkshireman with a dream of British beer, this moved forward in 2016 with his connection with an American brewer trained in Yorkshire. We opened our doors in 2017 to the thriving craft brewing scene of Torrance, CA with the simple goals of British beer done right and cask at the highest level. We believe that British beer, cask ale, and pub culture have been maligned in America despite the incomparable contribution of British brewing to what is now the globally significant American craft beer renaissance. As such, we look to redress the balance of appreciation for British beer through brewing excellent old-school and modern British beer with a sense of place, spreading awareness and education about British beer and culture, innovating cask methods and passing on this knowledge, offering year-round cask and keg beers that reflect a British identity (real malt flavor, considered hopping, yeast presence, and superior drinkability), and utilize savvy education and marketing to properly re-introduce a wider public to honest and delicious British beer.
