Thomas Hardy's Ale illustration

Thomas Hardy's Ale was first produced at Eldridge Pope Brewery in 1968, in honor of the 40th anniversary of the death of English author and poet Thomas Hardy. Now decades later, Thomas Hardy's Ale has been proven to be one of the great cellar-worthy beers. After Eldridge Pope folded, O'Hanlon's Brewery briefly produced it, but as of now - no one is producing this great beer. 

This fine art illustration is overflowing with history, containing Hardy himself, the now abandoned Dorchester Brewery the ale was produced at, the first vintage and the last vintage of Thomas Hardy's Ale, along with a map of England with a dot for Dorchester.
