    From England with a purple label on bottle called Royal Oak made by Eldridge Pope Brewing. Wondering if still being produced and if so where can I find. Maybe the best tasting beverage ever.

    Welcome to the BA site, trry699. Here is a link to the history of Eldridge Pope Brewing per Wikipedia. It sounds like Marstons owns the brands now, and maybe the beer that you're looking for would be brewed by one of their microbreweries, if it is available at all. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eldridge_Pope

    I found this beer in the BA database: https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1533/16169/

    Is this it? The last review is dated June, 2018, so this sounds like it is available.

    Now that's what I call service with a bug-eyed smile. :stuck_out_tongue:

    Nothing to add to what PapaGoose said, except my own Welcome to BA. :beers:

    I love a good mystery. :stuck_out_tongue: Hopefully the inquiry is properly solved.

    I found this:
    Bottle conditioned. "Strong Ale". Silver Medal Burton, 1985. Production ceased in 2001. The name has been used by O'Hanlon's brewery since 2004 for a slightly stronger beer with a similar recipe. The heart of this beer is a subtle mix of pale & lightly crystallised malts, whose mouth-filling complexity acts as a base for the Northdown, Challenger & Goldings hops, which add higher notes of aroma & bitterness.

    Maybe try a Yorkshire Stingo?

    A little higher in alcohol and probably bite but a great beer and available most of the time.
