Time flies and these are exciting times. Only yesterday we had a chap from a new microbrewery call in with a couple of bottles of beer for us to try, and very good they were too. So I bought a couple of casks from The Fell Brewery in Flookburgh. Both will be appearing next week.
But for this weekend we offer the following fine ales:
Bowness Bay-Swan Blonde 4% (Cumbria)
Woodlands-Ash Blonde 4.1% (Cheshire)
Two Roses-Black Beauty Stout 5% (Yorkshire)
Stringer's-Hop Priest 6.5% (Cumbria)
Ulverston-Fra Diavolo 4.3% (Cumbria)
Next up will be Blind Boris from Marlpool Brewing in Derbyshire.
Fra Diavolo means Brother Devil and is the popular name given to Michele Pezza, an 18th/19th century Neapolitan guerrilla leader who resisted the French occupation of Naples, proving an inspirational practicioner of popular insurrection.
