    Default Beer of the Week (w/e 29th September 2019)

    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

  2. #2


    On cask:

    Barsham Golden Close IPA
    Salopian Hop Twister*
    Adnams Ghost Ship
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    Couple of contenders there but BOTW goes to Marble Trials #2 (can). Easily recognisable as a Marble IPA but on steroids. Described as an Imperial IPA at 9.7%.

    A poor week for me

    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.9%
    Reunion Talwar 4.5%
    Reunion Beardtongue 4.5%
    Nerhergate Growler 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Ossett Excelsior 5.2
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    Thornbridge Jaipur 5.9%
    Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild 6.0%

    The easy winner is the Jaipur at £3.50 in the Wolverhampton Great Western, Honourable mention must go to the Osset Exceltsior.

    A poor week for me, also.

    Horbury - Tiramisu.*
    Rat - White Rat.
    Acorn - Old Moor Porter.
    Ilkley - Ruby Jane.
    Mill Valley - Triple C.
    Tigertops - King Horn Pale.
    Purity - Gold.
    Small World - Thunderbridge Stout.

    The OMP was a little tired, otherwise it would probably have won. Instead, I'll give it to the Tiramisu, an easy drinking coffee & dark chocolate porter.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Breakspear Gravity
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale*
    Marstons Serving Time
    Triple fff Apache Rose Peacock
    Siren Project Barista*
    Tempest The Wolf Of Selkirk*
    Cotleigh New Harvest
    Elusive Spectrum*
    Dark Star Lager

    A Smallish list with some very ordinary stuff included amongst a few shining lights, but brightest of all was the Tempest beer on keg in the so far unreviewed Brewers Tap, I shall try to catch up and add one in the next few days.
