Aalto playing live on Friday!

Aalto will be playing live on our Magners stage on Friday, 25th of July.

Aalto is a marvellous world music group from Finland. In their music the classical traditions of Northern India meet Tuvian throat singing while the psychedelic echoes of interstellar clarinet dance to the odd time signatures of kantele. These musical minerals form a jewel that works as a remedy for your suffering soul – just let the overtones show you the way to ecstasy!

BrewDog Blitz Cherry now on tap

The changing BrewDog tap’s newest visitor is Cherry Blitz 2,1%

“All revved up and ready to go, Blitz Cherry is the latest in our series of Berlinerweisse fruit beers. It’s taking it easy in terms of strength at a modest 2.1% ABV, but the 200kg of sour cherries will shoot you in the back. It has a real sour cherry kick, and is an incredible shade of red. It’s a complex tongue twisting beer, especially given the low ABV. Every Blitz we brew is different, due to the spontaneous souring process, and this particular version has a great blend of all the different flavours we look for in a Berlinerwiesse, and an effervescent champagne mouthfeel.”
