A couple of specials on keg for our first week of Year 3:
INDIA PALE ALE 7%
A West Coast IPA as mother nature intended, with more hops than you could shake a tree at. She’s glowing with aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit, cannabis and pine. Five US varieties bringing big citrus fruit flavours to the party, with heaps of malts giving you a caramel kiss at the end.
Brace yourself for the bitterness, but keep digging for the sweet stuff. Just like all plants, hops fade fast, so drink Gaia fresh to catch her in full bloom.
Gold medal, category IPA at the Dutch Beer Challenge 2018
STRANGER THAN FICTION
Stranger Than Fiction is a full-bodied porter with plenty of roast flavour with hints of molasses. Ridiculous amounts of chocolate and pale ale malts make this porter a smooth and creamy brew.
Yes, this Sunday it is 2 years since we opened. Sadly we have almost been operating under Covid restrictions for as long as we were open normally, but we are hanging in there!
We’d really like to thank everyone that has supported us and helped us get this far. Let’s hope that we are able to open in April and that things are back to normal in June. Looking forward to seeing you all at the bar again!
To celebrate our anniversary, we have a few treats for all our faithful supporters.
Looking forward to welcoming you all back to the ER in April (fingers crossed!)
In the meantime, why not have a midweek celebration of things to come with some beers from our latest selection. New for delivery on Wednesday are a Session IPA from Mallinsons and a Coconut Porter from Kent Brewery..full list here
Next delivery Saturday 20th Feb, get your orders in my midnight on Friday 19th
KENT MOSAIC 4.5% Mosaic Pale Ale A super-charged citrus flavour, which delivers bags full of mango, peach and lemon flavours – think Citra on steroids. #8 in the brewery’s single hop series.
MAD SQUIRREL 4.0% Bitter An old school bitter for the 21st century, Mister Squirrel is classy liquid. It is a balanced and respectable brew, with vintage notes of toffee, vanilla, and nuts. A beer like they used to be, Mister Squirrel is proof that these are the good old days.
An original recipes brewed since 1997, a pale ale with copious amounts of American Cascade hops. Wonderfully aromatic floral nose balanced by a gentle bitterness with a hint of sweetness. No wonder this beer has won the most awards of all the beers in the Triple FFF range
