It was the first Sunday in March 2012 when we first read about micropubs, it was an article in the Sunday Times largely featuring Martin Hillyer's Butcher's Arms in Herne, Kent, the original micropub.
We immediately knew that the micropub was the way forward and we opened on August 1st 2012 after visiting Just Beer in Newark, the Rat Race Alehouse at Hartlepool Station and the Conqueror in Ramsgate.
To mark that second anniversary we have decided to start opening on Sunday lunchtime from the first Sunday in March, which is March 2nd, from 12 00 until 2 00pm.
But for now, as we roll into the weekend, we are offering: Mordue-Workie Ticket (4.5%), Clark's- Flight (4%), Dunscar Bridge-Northern Sky (3.7%), Bowness Bay-Swan Black and Borough-Ruby Dark (4%). We also have Old Rosie (7.3%) and Gwatkins No Bull (4.5%).
Due to cancellations there are a couple of places available on the trip to Liverpool on Sunday. First come first served.
In other news we will be having a 'Meet the Brewer' event on Tuesday 8th April starting at 7-00pm. We will be showcasing the beers from Fell Brewery, Flookburgh and Andrew and Tim will be joining us to talk about their enterprise and answer any questions. Hope you can join us.
But for now:
