Chimay Blue

Available in 330ml Bottle – Alcohol: 9% – Country: Belgium

This is a Trappist beer from Scourmont Abbey near the Walloon town of Chimay.
It is a beautifully balanced crisp and refreshing with a distinctive floral and spicey hop character. A perfect introduction to the world of Trappist beers.

Rodenbach Grand Cru

Available in 330ml Bottle – Alcohol: 6% – Country: Belgium

Voted Best Ale in the World at the World Beer awards this is simply an incredible beer. Highly complex featuring sweet and sour fruit flavours, oak, vanilla, a touch of brown sugar , cherries and a malty character. The Finish is surprisingly dry despite the fruitiness, it has been described as the “Burgundy of Beers”

Stonewell Med Dry

Available on Draught – Alcohol: 6.0% – Country: Ireland

This is a classic cider. With a wonderful fresh apple juice aroma and effervescence that tickles the nose the cider gives an initial burst of sweet apple flavour on the palate followed by citrus and woody notes derived from the bittersweet and Jonagored apples used as the base ciders. This carbonated cider is best enjoyed as a refreshing thirst quencher. The “Extra Dry” is also available in Bottle.

Hop House 13

Available on Draught – Alcohol: 4.1% – Country: Ireland

Named after an early 1900’s hop store building at St. James’s Gate where hops are still stored, Hop House 13 is a double-hopped lager made with Irish barley and aromatic hops and continues the 256 years of heritage and brewing excellence at St. James’s Gate.

Staropramen

Available in 500ml Bottle – Alcohol: 5.0% – Country: Czech Republic

Pilsner style continental lager with hops, yeast and fruity notes on the palate. Beautifully balanced and sublimely refreshing.

Budejovicky Budvar

Available in 500ml Bottle – Alcohol: 5% – Country: Czech Republic

Far more flavoursome than its American namesake primarily because this is an All Malt brew while the American version uses a large quantity of rice as an adjunct. Budvar is mellower and less hoppy than the other classic Czech Lagers.

Kinsale Pale Ale

Available in 500ml Bottle – Alcohol: 5% – Country: Ireland

From the Blacks Brewery in Co. Cork, this is an exciting beer with a fusion of Cascade and Citra hops inspiring tropical flavours that are balanced by the malty sweetness.

Franziskaner Hefe

Available in 500ml Bottle – Alcohol: 5% – Country: Germany

The “Champagne” of Wheat Beers, this “hefe” is unfiltered, unpasteurised and made without any preservatives in accordance with German “Purity Laws”. A spicey and fruity beer with a crisp yeasty finish.

Galway Bay Full Sail

Available in 500ml Bottle – Alcohol: 5.8% – Country: Ireland

The simple malt bill gives an ABV of 5.8% which carries the flavour and really allows the hops to shine through. Light fruity sweetness upfront, pineapple, mango and grapefruit. Hints of zesty orange and a piney dry finish. Well balanced.

Fullers ESB

Available in 500ml Bottle – Alcohol: 5.9% – Country: England

Launched as a winter beer back in 1971 this was quickly established as a Fullers favourite. ESB has a lovely rich mahogany appearance, it is cherry and orange on the nose with soft malty toffee notes. The Palate is grassy with intense citrus underlined by a biscuity element.
London Pride and Fullers Vintage also available
