Real Ale Festival

We had our most successful festival ever in March serving a total of 24 different ales over the four day period. We have now decided that the date of our next ale festival will be from Thursday the 9th of October until Sunday the 12th of October.

Below is our list of requested ales that we are trying to get. The list isn't finalised or confirmed yet, but this is to give you a quick view to some of the ales we are trying to obtain.

Bank Top Bad to the bone A rustic tan coloured beer with floral qualities and delicate citrus notes 4.0%
Bowland Sawley Tempted A copper coloured session bitter with rounded fruit flavours and a spicy finish. 3.7%
Dawkins Resolution IPA Anglo-American IPA with mango aroma and grapefruit flavour, amber gold colour. 5.3%
George Wright Blue Moon Strong ale, light amber in colour. Alight citrus hoppy taste is balanced by a strong malty sweetness. 5.0%
Gyle 59 IPA India Pale Ale with a long bitter finish. Made with only Maris Otter malt, the strong grapefruit, orange and floral notes from Cascade, Amarillo and Chinook hops are allowed to shine through. 5.3%
Old School Black Board A smooth, dark, mild bitter with a biscuity aftertaste. Despite the colour, it’s light enough to drink as a session beer. 3.7%
Peerless Red Rocks Well bodied ruby ale. Rich malt flavours combine with Bramling X hops for a wonderful beer with fruity overtones. The brewer's favourite.  This is a typically english ale combining the best of British malts and hops 5.0%

Sonnet 43 Bourbon Milk Stout Brewed using Bourbon, cocoa and oats give this dark beer a rich, full-bodied, chocolaty  4.3%

Holsworthy Old Market Monk A Belgian style ale full of flavour and vibrancy. It has a deep rich tone with hints of coriander. Subtly hopped with hops from Germany giving a smooth finish. 6.1%
