Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale on tap!

Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, 6,8% ABV, is festive fresh hop holiday fun.

“The start of Celebration season is a festive event. We can’t start brewing until the first fresh hops have arrived, but once they have the season is officially under way! First brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale is one of the earliest examples of an American-style IPA and one of the few hop-forward holiday beers. Famous for its intense citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything we have at Sierra Nevada.”

BrewDog Dead Pony Club on tap!

We now have BrewDog’s Dead Pony Club on tap too!

Dead Pony Club 3,8%

This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better.
Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That’s why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels.
Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers.
Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets.
This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule.
Malts: Spring Blend, Cara and Crystal Malts
Hops: Simcoe, Citra and HBC
Twist: 3.8% but hoppy as hell
