CRAFT CIDER FROM THE KEYKEG:

LITTLE POMONA – ROOT & BRANCH – Dry Wild Fermented Keg Conditioned Cider – 7.8% – £4.75 Pint (minimum 1.5 pint orders, available in 1.5 and 3 pint containers)

Keg Conditioned, part bourbon barrel and wild fermented apples. Big, rich, fruity and funky with gorgeous big tannins. It’s live cider – the first in the UK!! Gluten Free & Vegan.

From the cider maker: “A year of thought and experiment has resulted in Root & Branch, a live cider, conditioned in keg, wild fermented, without the use of SO2. In short, everything of which the wider cider industry is terrified! There’s a big up-front hit of ripe peach fruit and clove spice before the bourbon barrel influence kicks in. Although technically dry, with its sweet wood, vanilla, butterscotch and gentle menthol note, it has a strong illusion of sweetness. There is really energetic natural carbonation that lifts and carries all these lovely flavours before glorious tannins emerge at the finish, leaving you needing another mouthful. This is a dangerously drinkable cider.”

CRAFT BEER FROM THE KEYKEG:

HAMMERTON BREWERY – TRAUME – Black Forrest Gateau Stout – 5.6% – £5.00 Pint (minimum 1.5 pint orders, available in 1.5 and 3 pint containers)

The original session beer, ordinary bitters formed a cornerstone of English drinking culture.

ANSPACH & HOBDAY – EXTRA HOPPY BITTER – 4.5% – 330ml –  £3.75

Aromas of blackcurrent, lychee, tropical fruit and spice are backed up by a classic bitter malt backbone. A touch of malt sweetneess balances the hop bitterness, resulting in a smooth, balanced yet complex beer.

Unique and fascinating, the beer is, most unusually, malted and brewed in one place, Like sipping beer history, brewing dates from the brewery site from 1387.

Hercule is considered by many to be a classic, it is very malty, but dry, with a hint of sweetness in the finish, and perfectly hopped. It has a very distinctive and intoxicating spicy aroma of fresh spruce that suddenly, irresistibly, fills the room when the swing-top is released. This unique house character probably derives from the strains of yeast used by the brewery and possibly from the fermentation in oak and because the beer is made entirely of malt and hops, without any spices or sugar.

MAGIC ROCK – Common Grounds – 5.4% – 330ml – £3.85

A full-bodied, decadently smooth coffee beer, 7 different malts combine with 7 different coffees added at 3 different points during the brew to create a sweet toffee, rich fruit and chocolate depth, accented with notes of vanilla, and hazelnut.

LARGE FORMAT FINE CIDER AND PERRY: FOR SHARING AND SAVOURING LIKE FINE WINE:

GOSPEL GREEN: Method Traditionnelle – Brut 2016 – 8.4% – 750ml “Champagne style” Bottle – £14.75

No ordinary cider; it’s made in the Eastern England tradition from culinary apples (eaters and cookers, rather than the traditional West of England specific cider apples) and the bubbles are added much more like a fine wine. The sparkle comes from “Methode Traditional”, as in fine English sparkling wine and Champagne; the time consuming and expensive second fermentation in the bottle technique, rather than adding CO2 at the end. To taste, it is all freshness, delicious aromatics of elderflower and green apples, with a dry refined character. Truly a fine cider.

BELGIAN BEERS

TRAPPIST ALES:

ORVAL – 6.2% – £4.50

This Belgian Trappist brewery only makes one beer, but it is one of the most sought-after beers in the world. Brewed by monks within the walls of the monastry, Orval is an orange-hazed Belgian pale ale bottled conditioned with a special yeast called brettonomyces. When fresh the beer is sherberty sweet with a herbal hop profile and a hint of funky, farmyard-like brett. But after around six months the beer changes character completely, becoming dry and pithy almost like a Negroni, lifted by that lovely hop hit and remaining hint of sweetness. Truly one of the world’s most enigmatic and brilliant breweries.

WESTMALLE DUBBEL – 7% – £5.00

Westmalle Dubbel is a dark, reddish-brown Trappist beer with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The creamy head has the fragrance of special malt and leaves an attractive lace pattern in the glass. The flavour is rich and complex, herby and fruity with a fresh-bitter finish. It is a balanced quality beer with a soft feel in the mouth and a long, dry aftertaste.  Since 1856 the monks have been brewing a dark Trappist beer at the Westmalle Abbey, this belongs to the Cistercian Order, which was founded in the eleventh century. The Westmalle Dubbel is widly accepted to be the first, and benchmark, Belgian Dubbel ale.

WESTMALLE TRIPEL – 9.5% – £5.95

Known as the “Mother of Tripels”, this gorgeous beer is thought to be the first example of the Belgian tripel style beer. Golden and slightly hazy, this beer has a fantastic deep fruit and spicy aroma, with banana bread-like flavours and herbal notes to balance the sweetness. It’s both the original and best tripel beer, and a shining example of how good Trappist beers can be.

CHIMAY RED – 7% – £5.50

This classic Belgian Trappist beer is a dubbel-style ale with huge depth of flavour. It has lots of banana-like aromas, as well as plenty of dark fruit notes from the big, smooth malt base. You can expect fig, dates, raisins and even a little coffee on the palate of this complex and warming dark ale.

CHIMAY BLUE – 9% – £5.90

Chimay Blue is principally distinguished by its character of a strong dark beer. This is a dark, quadruple beer that has an aroma of fresh yeast with a light, floral touch. Its flavour has a surprisingly light touch of roasted malt. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised and will develop in the bottle over time.

ROCHEFORT 8 – 9.2% – £5.25

Rochefort is one of the most famous and revered breweries in the world and makes three stunning beers.
