The Nags Head Beers

Black Jack Beers - Rabbit Hunt - Pale - 4.4% - £3.80
A tasty pale ale thoroughly hopped with Azacca and Jarrylo and finished with some delicious Ella.

Cloudwater Brew Co - A•W18 Pale - Pale - 4% - £4.20
Our season-long Pale Ale is a beer for everyday moments, whether it`s conversation with friends or quiet relaxation after work, and aims to provide balance between bold flavour and easy drinkability. It`s full of rounded tropical fruit flavours with a soft juicy finish and low bitterness.

Elusive - Pyramid of Doom - Pale - 3.7% - £3.80
A super-sessionable Hazy Pale Ale, generously single-hopped with Ekuanot - first in a series!

Elusive - Helter Skelter - Pale - 5.4% - £3.80
A New England-style Hazy Pale Ale hopped with Citra and dry-hopped with Citra and 7Cs (a blend of 7 C-hops). Lots of peach at the fore, here, with a dank and resinous undertone.

Siren Craft Brew - Suspended In Oats - Pale - 4% - £3.80
Soft body, mandarin orange and pineapple aroma and more of the same in the taste, with some piney, dank and evergreen notes underlining

Siren Craft Brew - Medjuica - Pale - 4.8% - £4.20
Medjuica is full of grapefruit and citrus flavours with some popping pine and resin notes. Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic and Ekuanot in the dry-hop provide an amazing aroma of ripe mango, orange, tropical fruit and some fresh hop dankness

Vibrant Forest - Stone Sap - Pale - 6.8% - £4.40
Collaboration with Siren Craft. Juicy IPA fermented on Siren Craft's house yeast and brewed with lots of Citra, Simcoe, and Bravo. Pineapple, orange and mango dominate the aroma whilst juicy apricot, mandarin and ripe mango tackle the palate. Huge sappy flavours takes the lead into a long, piney finish.

Marble - Manchester Bitter - Golden - 4.2% - £3.80
This classic mancunian bitter holds initial citrus aroma that eventually gives way to a full palate and a dry, bitter finish.

Marble - Baby Barleywine - Barley Wine - 4.9% - £4.20
All the intensity and balance of a barley wine at a session-able strength. A touch of Vienna on top of our standard pale malt and a prolonged boil give a biscuit and caramel base. Lavishly hopped with cascade, citra, chinook, el dorado, centennial and simcoe for flavours and aromas of pine, stone fruit, grapefruit and orange. A lingering but balanced bitterness leading to an incredibly drinkable beer.

Elusive - Spycat - Brown - 4.5% - £3.80
A classic American Brown brewed with oat malt for a smooth body. Hopped with Cascade and dry-hopped with Blanc and Summit.

Triple fff - Pressed Rat & Warthog - Mild - 3.8% - £3.80
Complex mild perhaps not in the traditional sense but we like our beers hoppy! Ruby coloured, dark chocolate aroma with hints of blackcurrant and plum leads to a soft yet full roast flavour, fruit and malt vying with the rounded hoppy bittersweet finish. Not only for the mild fanatics but the bitter lovers too. Both will be left satisfied and wanting more. Champion Mild of Britain 2002

Binghams - Vanilla Stout - Stout - 5% - £3.80
Dark stout brewed using dark malts and infused with vanilla pods. Won Gold in the CAMRA Supreme Champion Beer of Britain 2016 after winning Gold in the Speciality beer category.
