Beer, what is it good for? Absolutely everything! We’re kicking of 2016 in style with a brand spanking new website and some new beer!
So what’s on the menu for February? Well to start we’ve just taken a delivery from Wiggle Valley brewery, a small microbrewery tucked away down a farm lane on the edge of the village Ryme Intrinseca, located in the Wriggle Valley near Yetminster in Dorset. This small brewery doesn’t deliver outside of Dorset, but they made a special trip just for us!
COPPER HOPPA 4.5% Beautiful deep copper/red coloured ale, medium bodied with a rich malty flavour and fruity nose.
NIGHT OWL 4.6% A rich velvety porter, with massive flavours of molasses, liquorice and a hint of smoke with a fruity nose.
VALLEY GOLD 4.5% Fruity golden ale, with Orange Citrus notes and bitter finish.
RYME RAMBLER 4% Delicious full flavoured Tawny English bitter, made with traditional English Hops.
HEDGE HOPPA 5.6% Huge malty flavored deep red beer with a low level bitter finish. Amazing with strong cheese.

Arcobrau, For almost 500 years, Arcobräu has been brewed in Moos, at the very heart of lower Bavaria, Germany. Surrounded by rolling fields of barley and wheat with the dark hills of the Bavarian forest in the distance, the location is idyllic. The brewery is still owned by the descendants of the founders.
Weisbier The pearl under Bavaria’s light Weissbiers, Lightly fruity and fresh.
Schloss Dunkle This dark lager is the archetypal Bavarian beer as it was brewed in the good old days. It tastes of roasted malt, dark velvety sweetness undercut with the bitterness of hops. The foam is caramel colored.
