Lockdown 3 – stand and deliver!

Here we go again. Looks like the latest Government announcement restricts us to delivery only , so we are planning to re-introduce deliveries for a trial period to see how things go. Hopefully we can keep it going for the duration of Lockdown 3, and we will see you all at the Engine Room again very soon.

First delivery will be tomorrow, Wednesday 6th Jan. See our delivery page for more information. Get your orders in by 12 noon on the day of delivery, beer will be with you late afternoon to early evening.

As before we will be delivering cask ale and cider as well as keg beers and packaged beers (cans and bottles). The variety of cask ales we can offer will depend on the amount that we sell, but as ever, we will endeavour to offer you an ever changing list of ales for you to enjoy during your isolation.

So for now, keep your chin up, keep safe and keep ORDERING BEER!!

Final Belgian beer (for now!)

JACK’S PRECIOUS IPA

STYLE: Indian Pale Ale
IBV: 5.9%

COLOUR: Pale in colour, with a snow-white head

FLAVOUR: fruity and creamy taste, with a subtle bitterness

In 1904, the Ghent Zoo had to close and Jack the Asian elephant was sold to Siske, a so called ‘gistmarchand’ or yeast-trader. He tried to sell the elephant in England, but that plan failed and the poor animal ended up in a Dutch sausage factory. Whether or not Jack was actually reduced to sausages, remains unclear. What is clear, is that the legend of Jack has inspired great conversations throughout the decades. And that is exactly what the new bitter India Pale Ale of The Musketeers brewery wants to aspire: talking beer.

Jack’s Precious IPA is a distinctive India Pale Ale: a refreshing and easily drinkable specialty beer with 5.9%. Jack’s Precious IPA is reminiscent of a floral bouquet with a citrus accent. The beer boasts a smooth, fruity and creamy taste, while the floral and spicy hop bitterness is by no means overpowering. Jack’s Precious IPA is pale in colour, with a snow-white head lingering like a silken fringe once savoured.

 The flavours of Jack’s Precious IPA were developed with the team of the Gollem specialty beer pubs in Amsterdam and Antwerp, pioneers in introducing the Dutch to Belgian specialty beers. Gollem’s Precious IPA was offered exclusively by the Gollem beer cafes for 2 years, where it has had and still holds the title of ‘IPA of the house’.

Modern English Bitter

Maris the Otter, the original Brew York Bitter first brewed back in 2016 is so called for two reasons.

Holiday’s are coming…

One Holiday is HERE!

Now pouring for your enjoyment…

HOLIDAY HAZE

PALE ALE ALC. 4.7% VOL.

A welcome break from all the malty, dark and spiced Christmas beers, Holiday Haze is hazy, potently aromatic, deliciously juicy, and overflowing with hops. Notes of tangerine, peach and passionfruit are present in both the aroma and flavour, along with more subtle accents of tropical fruit and pine. Flaked oats and flaked barley create a smooth and unobtrusive malt platform to support the Galaxy and Mosaic hops, resulting in a soft and deliciously hoppy beer.
