During the month we shall be serving:

Bath Ales Summer’s Hare 3.9%
A full, malt flavour and a fabulously fruity bitterness makes Summer’s Hare the perfect ale for when you are sat outside on a warm summer’s evening.

Goff’s Brewery Jouster 4.0%
A drinkable, tawny coloured ale, with a light hoppiness in the aroma. It has a good balance of malt and bitterness in the mouth, underscored by fruitiness, with a clean, hoppy aftertaste.

Harvey’s Brewery IPA 3.5%
IPA was once a mainstay brand of countless traditional breweries. Often referred to as ‘ordinary bitter’ by way of differentiation, there is little that is ordinary about it. Premium malted barleys and local aroma hops combine to create a beer that is light and refreshing. Fragrant hop flavours impart a full but delicate bitterness to this classic table beer.
Light and refreshing. Delicate, grassy and earthy hop aroma. Bitter and balanced malt flavours.

Skinner’s Brewery Betty Stoggs 4.0%
Copper-coloured, with a light malty aroma, a floral, even cedar taste, and a sharp tang of bitter grapefruit, this is an ale that has the strength of character to take on tasty dishes like stews, hard cheeses and meat-packed pasties.
In Cornish folklore Betty Stogs was reputedly full-bodied, golden-hearted and just a little fruity. So you can see why we chose to name our award-winning, smooth-drinking amber ale after her. Especially as both Bettys are often to be found at the centre of a good party. Join us in raising a glass to Betty Stogs – truly the Queen of Cornish ales.

Wadworth 6X 4.1%
The classic premium ale that has made Wadworth famous. Well known and respected, 6X is a beacon on the bar for many ale drinkers. Full bodied and distinctive, 6X remains one of the South’s most famous beers. The beer is mid-brown in colour, malty and fruity with balancing hop character.

West Berkshire Brewery Good Old Boy 4.0%
Good Old Boy was named for everyone’s favourite character in the local pub. A classic best bitter, this was of our very first brews. It has never been out of production since and remains our best-seller today.
Rich malts and fruity hops combine to produce an exceptionally well-balanced and full-flavoured beer of real character.
A classic bitter brewed with a blend of rich malted barley and fruity hops to produce an exceptionally well-balanced and full-flavoured beer.

West Berkshire Brewery Session Pale Ale 3.6%
Vic Secret, Citra, Galaxy, Chinook & Summit hops create this punchy, tropical, floral sensation of a session pale ale. We’ve added English elderflower to this abundance of hops to balance the herbal and pine notes from the Chinook & Summit, and because we have so much of it growing right on our doorstep, why wouldn’t we take advantage of natures bounty. If you’re drinking this beer, well done on taking your first step on a journey of flavour discovery, pale doesn’t have to be monotonous.
