Salopian Brewery - Automaton


Automaton is a bold IPA that pours a beautiful golden colour and is topped by a crisp white head. Intense waves of pine, citrus and tropical fruit flavours of mango and pineapple wash across the palate, before a long, clean finish with strong persistent fruit flavours lingers sweetly.

  • Style

    INDIA PALE ALE - IPA - At the height of its empire, Britain’s outposts demanded beer, but India itself was too warm for brewing. India Pale Ale was created in response, a beer that could survive the arduous journey to India. Since then, IPA has been used to describe a well-hopped, high-gravity beer. Over the decades that followed many versions were created and the style adopted by craft brewers everywhere. Today, the use of high quantities of American hops has become ever more popular, resulting in beers that offer distinct floral aromas on top of a hop explosion.

  • Brewery

    Salopian Brewery was founded as Snowdonia Brewery in 1994 by Brewer Martin Barry in North Wales but in 1995 he relocated  to Shrewsbury and renamed it Salopian. At its inception the brewery was all into cask in the traditional Midlands style but in 2008 a change was made to a more modern hop led style. This transition has proved very successful, with sales trebling since 2008 and the brewery’s recognition at every level of competition. A new 30 barrel brewery was installed in 2010 and the brewery relocated in 2014 to a purpose built 50 barrel plant.
