Beers

    Bottled Beers:

  • Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
    Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic, yet it remains new, complex and surprising to thousands of beer drinkers every day. It is—as it always has been—all natural, bottle conditioned and refreshingly bold.
  • Brooklyn Lager
    Amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food.
  • Blue Moon
    Blue Moon brewery is based in Denver, Colorado, but the beer makes a deep, long bow in the direction of the spiced white beers of Belgium. As well as barley malt and hops, Blue Moon has the added attractions of oats for creaminess and orange peel and coriander for fruity and spicy notes.

  • Ales:

  • Butcombe Bitter (4%)
    The West Country's favourite beer derives from pure Mendip Spring Water…notably bitter, clean tasting, refreshingly dry and distinctive. Made with 100% best Maris Otter malt (the Rolls Royce of malts), together with a blend of (never divulged) English hop varieties… Butcombe Bitter is a moreish Mendip masterpiece!
  • Crimson King (Guest Ale)
    A big red beer using Rye malt to give distinctive, refreshing, spicy dry flavours. Three UK hops plus Styrians for aroma, combine to make a red beer bursting with hop character, and a fresh, fruity aroma.


    Lagers:

  • Estrella
    Golden with amber tones and a few green highlights. The dark roasted notes give it personality and it’s final flavour.
  • Veltins
    A perfect illustration of how to balance rather delicate malt with lots of tangy hops and create an eminently drinkable beer. From a village brewery south-east of Dortmund.
