Hopped with Ahtanum, Palisade and Mount Hood varieties

Siren Craft Brew - Orange Boom - Wheat - 2.7% 
Championed by Felix in the brewhouse, Orange Boom has been at various events throughout the year in pilot batches. We eventually made room in the schedule for a full batch in November. This beer is the base of Calypso but with plenty of fresh orange zest and juice that really gives it a punch.

The Red Lion Inn, Cricklade House Ordinary Bitter, balanced and highly sessionable

Butcombe - Bitter - Malty - 4% - £2.80

Made with 100% best Maris Otter malt (the Rolls Royce of malts), together with a blend of (never divulged) English hop varieties…Butcombe Bitter is a moreish Mendip masterpiece!

Gyle 59 - Elderbeery Stout - Stout - 7%

Kozel Pale has a slightly bitter taste, gentle smell and golden yellow color. This deep fermented beer with an alcohol volume of 4% goes particularly well with meals. Czech Beer of the Year 2010.

St Austell - Small Batch Brews Eureka - Lager - 4.9% 
Brewed in the style of the American Pale Ales from West Coast USA that inspired a brewing generation, Eureka is a single-hopped APA by St Austell Brewery’s Head Brewer Roger Ryman. Maris Otter barley is blended with Crystal Rye malt for a flash of amber and a little flaked maize for crispness, while the exciting hop variety ‘Eureka’ is able to express all its distinctive character. Intense notes of blackcurrant, tangerine and grapefruit alongside strong herbal and hop-kiln aromas suggest that this is a hop that we are going to be hearing a lot more about in the future. And at a powerful 4.9% ABV this is a real punchy American Pale Ale to savour.

German - Veltins Pilsner - Pilsner 
Brewed according to the German Purity Law of 1516, “Fresh” VELTINS only uses pure malt, aromatic hops, yeast, and soft water ( the full bodied, soft water still emanates from the original springs in the mountains surrounding Grevenstein, an area of natural beauty protected as a Nature Reserve ).

Hop Kettle - Hop's In Pils - Pilsner - 5.2%
