New beers 31/10



When you get a message from Brodie’s Beers, asking if you’d like a cask or two of unfined, straight from the tank, conditioned and ready to serve Kiwi pale, you bite their hand off, don’t you?

Well we did, and it’s been tapped, vented and it slid onto pump 3 on Wednesday evening. It tastes gorgeous and we don’t think it will last very long. We’ve asked for another one just in case.

A naturally hazy beer, unfined meaning the haze is created by hop oil and yeast, it’s one successful experiment. Don’t miss out.



Tapped and ready for the weekend, on cask, we’re rather excited about Brodie’s/Magic Rock collaboration, mango-infused The Great Alphonso.

Brown beers are back in fashion it seems. We’ve got Siren’s Driftwood ready to go with Fourpure’s American Brown to be on the keg menu soon.

Redchurch Brewery’s Paradise Pale graces the board for the first time and soon to follow will be Anspach & Hobday’s Bramling Cross and Willamette Pale.

Include a Wild Beer Co Fresh on cask, and it’s pretty exciting downstairs in the cellar this week.



Just in time for Autumn, Beavertown bring back their limited release, Stingy Jack, a 7.2% Spiced Pumpkin Ale. It’s the perfect antidote to the cold, dark nights setting in.

Try Stingy Jack this week in 660ml ‘bombers’, paired with two Bell & Brisket black bagel sliders. A perfect winter snack for two, or if you’re feeling particularly hungry and want all that beer to yourself, a meal for one! Expect hints of maple syrup, cardamom, crystalized ginger, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon in your beer, caraway seeds and molasses in your bagels, perfectly matched with pickled pumpkin and sweet potato fries.

£16 special, available this week.

Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
