Craft Beer & Cider line-up – On the taps

House Beers

Renegade Brewery Craft Lager – 4.5%

This uncompromising lager is crisp, clean and utterly refreshing. Lagered for six weeks and loaded with Progress and Fuggles hops for masses of flavour.

Renegade Brewery West Coast Pale Ale – 5.1%

This American Pale Ale is inspired by the great craft beers of the U.S. West Coast. Shedloads of Cascade, Summit, Columbus and Chinook result in a big, fat, hop bomb of a beer.

The Craftier Lager Tap

Renegade Brewery – Vienna Lager – 4.8%

A modern interpretation of a traditional Vienna Lager that delivers a complex hop aroma with an equal amount of maltiness. Toasted malts give a residual sweetness and New World hops give a contemporary bitterness. Expect understated sweetness with more than a hint of hops.

COMING SOON! Fourpure – Marzen Lager – 5.5%

A beautifully bright, deep golden coloured beer with fine bubbles, lively carbonation and great lacing topped by a tightly packed white head. The long maturation period has given this beer very clear, well-defined flavours and aromas. 

The Vienna & Munich malts give this beer a real substantial malt backbone of bread & toast, which is slightly offset by the sharper flavour of the Pilsner malt. The Tettnang hop imparts a great classically noble, delicately spicy flavour that gives this beer more complexity than the traditional German interpretations.

The Pale & Hoppy Tap

Ilkley Brewery – Alpha Beta– 4.5%

Big on flavour, easy on abv, this is a cracking session IPA with a distinctive American hop character. Body and depth comes from the rye in the grain bill and the nose and finish are all about grapefruit and lychee. A little beer that’s big and bold
COMING SOON! North Brewing Co – Pinata – 4.5%
A tropical pale ale using four different tropical fruits to pair with plenty of new world hops. Mandarin and grapefruit peel were used in the kettle and Guava and Mango added later.
COMING SOON! Brighton Bier – Freshman Vermont IPA – 4.5%
A super drinkable, Vermont inspired, session strength IPA.  Lower hop bitterness, higher levels of chloride (in the brewing liquor), malted oats and an altered dry hopping schedule combine to create a softer mouthfeel, juicy hop flavour/aroma and an attractive hazy appearance. Vegan friendly. 
COMING SOON! Siren Craft Brewing – Undercurrent – 4.5%

A pale ale with spicy, grassy aromas and a taste of grapefruit and apricot. Undercurrent is part pale, part oats and part caramel barley. Her swirls of bold, bready and nutty malt whirl into a concoction of spicy, citrus, floral hops. Mystery lurks in those cascade and palisade hops.

COMING SOON! Siren Craft Brewing – Liquid Mistress – 5.8%

A west coast red IPA: burnt raisins and crackers balanced by citrus. Liquid Mistress is our femme fatale – mysterious, seductive and disarming. She draws and charms drinkers with her full, red colours. You will soon desire her biscuit-and-burnt-raisin malt base, and peach and grapefruit spark.

COMING SOON! Left Handed Giant – Duet Citra Ella – 4.8%

One from a serieos of rotational American Pale’s using a different hop pairing each time from this Bristol brewery. This one brewed with Citra and Ella. The grain bill is made up of  Maris Otter, Capapils, Caramalt and with an addition of Wheat.

The Dark Stuff Tap

Tiny Rebel Stay Puft Marshmallow Porter – 5.2%

“I’m terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.” – This marshmallow porter has the classic roasty qualities of a proper dark ale, whilst the marshmallow gives it a smooth sweetness, both combining for a delightful, S’mores-like ale. A sweet treat for the cold winter nights.

COMING SOON! Weird Beard Brew Co. – Black Perle Coffee Milk Stout – 3.8%

Sweet, roast malts, big coffee and chocolate all star in this beer. Brewed with lactose to smooth the bitterness of darker malts and add a light creaminess to this sessionable dark beer. We use wonderful whole bean Hasbean coffee for this brew. Vegetarian  Friendly.

COMING SOON! Buxton Brewery – Rednik Stout – 4.1%

An easy drinking Stout Ale in the classic style, with a robust and flavoursome taste.

The Apple Tap

CidersmithsHarry Masters Jersey – 5.5%

Made from the vintage bitter sweet cider apple raised originally by Somerset nurseryman Harry Masters in the late 1800s, this is a medium blend cider with a refreshing and distinctive taste. As right for a summer’s day as a night on the tiles.
