Beer of the Week

LERVIG Brewery – Norway Magellanic Clouds. 3.5% abv         £5.00

Small beers are becoming ever more popular – and this is a great one to start on. One of the most sessionable beers Lervig have ever made, combining one of their favourite hops, Citra, with Idaho 7, the new kid on the block. This beer has classic hop characteristics of both tropical fruits and resinous pine that meld into a delicate but balanced body with a light finish that begs for another sip.

Following our recent Brewdogtap takeover, We still have some exciting beers coming on that didn’t quite make the taps during the event. Look out for Cosmic Crush Cherry– 6.3% Scottish Sour Ale fermented with Cherries, aged in wine barrels.

Kasteel Rougefrom Brouwerij Van Honsebrouckis an 8%abv blend of Kasteel Donker and cherry liquor. The mix of these two excellent products creates an exceptional soft beer with references to the dark mother beer.
