Just a reminder that our inaugural beer festival is next weekend.
We kick off at 7pm on Thursday 3rd May and have 25 Great British Beers, Ciders and Perry for you to try. The festival is on until Monday 7th May or until the beer runs out!
Over the weekend there will be an assortment of fabulous food on offer including a hog roast and Thai curry.
We'd love to see you there
Hugo and team
B & T/Dragonslayer 4.0%
A golden beer with a malt and hop flavour and a bitter finish. More malty and less hoppy than is usual for a beer of this style
Bartrams/Comrade Bill Bartram's Egalitarian Anti-Imperialist Soviet Stout 6.9%
A Russian stout by any other name, a luscious easy-drinking example of the style
Bartrams/AH 64 Specale 6.4%
Brewed to celebrate the apache helicopter and the regiments return from operations in Afghanistan in Sept. 2008. The Regiments C.O Colonel Dalton was moving on so it seemed an ideal way of celebrating these events
Beartown/Black Bear 5.0%
Advertised as a strong mild, this beer is rather bitter for the style. Bitter and malt flavours are balanced and there is also a good roast character along with a hint of liquorice. Aftertaste is short and reasonably dry
Burton Bridge/Burton Porter 4.5%
Quite malty throughout but with plenty of roast fruit and liquorice, and a long bitter aftertaste
Cambridge Moonshine/CB1 4.2% (LocAle)
Amber coloured traditional best bitter with a good blend of malt and hops with a rounded hoppy finish. Brewed two miles away. Hopefully Mark the brewer will pop in to say hi!
Concertina/One Eyed Jack 4.0%
Fairly pale in colour with plenty of hop bitterness. Great session ale!
Copper Dragon/Best Bitter 3.8%
A refreshing amber coloured best bitter with a well-balanced malty and hoppy flavour. An excellent mid-gravity session ale brewed to suit that special northern palate but still enjoyed by us southerners
Darkstar/Expresso Stout 4.2%
Freshly ground Arabica coffee beans added to the copper for a few minutes after the boil of this black beer.
Elland/Nettlethrasher 4.4% Grainy amber coloured beer. A rounded nose with some fragrant hop notes followed by a mellow nutty fruity taste and a dry finish
Highwood/Bomber County 4.8%
An earthy malt aroma but with a complete underlying mix of coffee, hops, caramel and apple fruit. The beer starts bitter and intensifies to the end.
A dark brown ale with plenty of body, a malty flavour and a caramel/coffee finish
Leeds/Midnight Bell 4.8%
A premium dark mild crystal and chocolate malts combine to give a full bodied, complex character to this award winning ale Mighty Oak/Oscar Wilde Mild 3.7%
CAMRA Supreme Campion Beer
Roasty dark mild with suggestions of forest fruits and dark chocolate. A sweet taste yields to a more bitter finish
Milestone/Rich Ruby 4.5%
Lightly hopped with a malty finish
Moorhouse's/Black Cat 3.4%
Chosen by Carl but Hugo heartily agrees. A dark mild-styled beer with a delicate chocolate and roast flavours with a crisp, bitter finish - loads of flavour for a low strength ale
A straw coloured beer with a smooth mouth feel. Spicy hop predominates the aroma and there are grassy hops in the mouth with a little sweetness. Lingering hoppy finish
Old Mill/Bitter 3.9%
A malty nose is carried through to the initial flavour. Bitterness runs throughout
Osset/Big Red Bitter 4.0%
Deep red, malty Yorkshire bitter
Poachers/Blackcrow Stout 4.5%
Dry stout with a burnt toffee and caramel flavour
Potbelly/Pigs Do Fly 4.4%
A light and golden ale. It is a single hoped brew using styrian goldings
CIDERS AND PERRY
Gyd/Farmhouse Dry 6.5%
A True Traditional Farmhouse Dry Cider
Broadoak Bristol Port 6%
Fruity Colourful Cider with a Delicious Apple Taste and is Medium Sweet
Gwunt & Ddraig Two Trees Perry 4.5%
A Pale, Fruity Perry with an Aroma of Fruit and a Hint of Honey on the palate
