CRAFT BEER - Curious IPA
Pale & Hoppy
We're winemakers and so apply the classic practise used by Champagne, Cotes du Rhone and Claret who blend three grape varieties to create balance and depth. We use traditional English Golding; the fresh, sweet, delicate king of English hops, Bramling Cross; a forest fruity beauty, and Chinook; the punchy, spicy yet aromatic hop.
Dark & Fruity
Rich fruitcake aromas – almonds, zest and conserved fruit. A wonderful balance of malt and hop flavours. A pint to savour. An easy drinking pint rich in flavour.
Brew Dog - Punk IPA Craft Beer
Pale & Hoppy
This 5.6% trans-atlantic fusion IPA is light golden in colour with tropical fruits and light caramel on the nose. The palate soon becomes assertive and resinous with the New Zealand hops balanced by the biscuit malt. The finish is aggressive and dry with the hops emerging over the warming alcohol.
This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.
CRAFT BEER - Chapel Down Brewery - Curious Brew
Pale & Refreshing
Finest East Anglian pale malt, Czech Saaz and US Cascade hops make the initial brew then it's re-fermented with sparkling wine yeast before being given a dosage of the fragrant and rare New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hop
CRAFT LAGER Sharps - Cornish Pilsner
Pale & Smooth
