Aunt Bessie’s beers are now a thing, and we’re confused and delighted in equal measure.

You’re probably wondering ‘what’s Aunt Bessie’s beer? Is it infused like a roast potato?’ – and, well, you wouldn’t be far off, actually.

The new beers come in three flavours, inspired by British classics, and are made in collaboration with the independent brewery, Northern Monk.

There’s a choice of a Roast Dinner Brown Ale, an Apple Crumble and Custard Pale Ale and a Sticky Toffee Pudding and Custard Porter. Not bad, ey?

All the drinks are available for £2.50 each, and come in 330ml cans, containing 4.5 per cent alcohol.

They come after the success of the Aunt Bessie’s Jam Roly Poly and Custard Pale Ale beers sold last year, and can also be bought in a pack of four, which costs £5.50 ( a promo reduced from £6.75).

The Roast Dinner Brown Ale is made using actual Aunt Bessie’s Roast Potatoes and Yorkshire Puddings, while the Jam Roly Poly and Custard Pale Ale is made with plum, apricot and strawberry, as well as the Aunt Bessie’s pudding recipe.

Over on socials, Northern Monk said: “There’s nowt better than a traditional Sunday roast and a cracking’ pud. But how about cans of them?

“We’ve got a full Sunday spread for you with Aunt Bessie’s and since you’ve been good, after your main course you’ve got three delicious puddings to choose from.”

“I need to try these!,” said someone in the comments.

While another penned: “Jam Roly Poly & Custard is [fire emoji].”

Some people were somewhat baffled, though.

“Firstly, are you ok?,” one commented as Northern Monk announced the news.

As another joked: “It’s not April Fools day so this must be real.”

Lewis Gartland, Morrisons’ buying manager of craft beer and bottled ale, said: “We’re thrilled to again be offering customers the chance to challenge their taste buds and sample fantastic innovation with three new flavours.

“We are certain customers are going to love this exciting launch.”

As well as Morrisons, the beers were also available via the Northern Monk web shop (although they sold out in minutes, so you’ll have to hope for a rerelease!)
