It’s too darn hot as I believe Cole Porter once remarked. Talking of Porter, we do have one on tap tonight along with the normal wide variety of good stuff.
If you like your beer a bit colder and fizzier we have just had some new keg lines added. For a limited time we have Palm back on tap (I bought the last 9 kegs in the UK!!!!). We also have De Koninck, a belgian pale(ish) ale from Antwerp and from Tiny Rebel we have Clwb Tropicana, it’s not a typo – they’re Welsh, a 5.6 fruit salad in a glass pale ale.
Something for everyone to wash down their pizza with.
Maybe it’s because last Friday and Saturday were really busy. On Friday I thought there was a gin drinking tournament taking place!
We have some good stuff in the cellar including GWB, Arbor and Plain Ales. We also have a cask of Ramsbury Belapur IPA. Also a few beers from breweries we’ve not had before such as Cotleigh from down Taunton way in Zummerzet and a beer from Triple fff in Alton, Hants – Alton Pride which has won lots of awards over the years.
Did I mention Bristol Beer Factory? No? Well have a couple of theirs to throw into the mix.
Sorry but not a clue at the moment when any of them might be going on. Whatever you have is going to be good.
Have a great weekend and don’t forget the rugby on Saturday and Sunday.
It’s getting warmer but to still cheer you up a bit we’ve got a couple of typical Arbors (pale and fruity), we’ve got two new XTs (again both pale).
The next stout / porter on will be from our very own Old Town Brewery, 4.5% “Bushwhacker” porter.
Add to this some beers from the Electric Bear brewery in Bath, new to The Hop, and a lip smacking 7.5% IPA from Firebrand in Cornwall there has got to be something there to tickle your fancy and wash down your pizza!
Apart from a great range of beers in the cellar from favourites such as Arbor, Raw, Brightside, Milk Street, Animal & XT we are pleased to announce that Ian the Pizza man will be in tomorrow with his luvverly hand made stonebaked pizzas. He does realise it’s not a 6 nations weekend but he enjoyed himself so much in the last two weeks that he just can’t stay away.
Nasty American invention, unlike quite a few of our bottled beer offering such as Single Wide IPA from Boulevard Brewery in Kansas City.
Come along tonight for a typically varied selection of cask beers from around the country.
For all you stout and porter lovers we have some belters. On tonight we have Kitty Wilkinson (Chocolate & Vanilla Stout) from Liverpool Organic and coming soon is an intriguing sounding Old Liquorice Stout from Empire Brewing in Huddersfield.
