Beers that we hope will be available depending upon delivery
New Wave Black Isle Red Kite 4.2 Bitter A soaring amber ale with a perfect balance of citrus and malt.

Burning Sky Plateau 3.5 Golden Ale Pale gold in colour, with a crisp malt edge and sharp bitterness. Plateau has been hopped at different stages of the brew, with a big mix of US & NZ hops to satisfy the discerning drinker.

Five Points Railway Porter 4.8 Porter Aromas of chocolate and coffee with hints of caramel, brewed with British East Kent Goldings hops.

Harbour Nicaraguan Coffee Stout 5.2 Stout A bittersweet coffee with soft roasted flavours and notes of stone fruit and berries, which married beautifully with the Stout.

Kirkstall Three Swords 4.5 APA Very pale and spectacularly thirst-quenching. Three different hops give this beer a delightful citrus nose.

Tempest Dawn of Justice 3.6 IPA Has a floral, lemon, sweet taste.

Wild Beer Co Bibble 4.2 IPA Brewed with Vienna Malt and Oats, an amazing mouth filling malt base. Hopped with beautiful Mosaic hops, renowned for their tropical fruit beauty, helped along with some nice orangey Amarillo hops both at the end of the boil and in the dry hop. It is unfined, so naturally hazy. A moreish bitterness is complimented by tropical fruit tastiness.

Wylam 004 Palisade 4.6 Golden Ale Single Hop Series... Palisade (or Yakima Chief H-4 as it is known) is grown in the North West of the U.S. and literally means 'a strong wooden fence'. Munich and Vienna Malt lay out the foundations of this co-humulone barricade of sweet nectar and floral perfume punch.

Salopian Kashmir 5.5 APA An elegant strong Salopian version of an IPA,citrus, pines and tropical fruit engulf the palate and caress the senses. A dry body with an extremely long lingering  finish.

Siren Soundwave 5.6 IPA Immensely hoppy and alive with grapefruit, peach and mango flavours.
Keith Keith Wry Keith 5.0 Rye A spicy malty character and lingering bitterness,

Keith Stout Keith 5.0 Stout A rich, sweet stout with dark coffee added during the ageing stage of the beer. Hints of espresso, thick molasses, milk chocolate and jungles. OK, we lied about the jungles.
Hybrid Hybrid Apex 4.4 APA Hopped with U.S. Cascade and New Zealand Rakau for a refreshing slightly tropical and floral taste.

Hybrid So new it has not got a name 5.7 Saison New beer from Hybrid using jarrylo hops.
Cross Borders Cross Borders Heavy 4.1 Amber Scottish Heavy
Fintry Brewing Company Fintry Brewing Company Clachertyfarley 3.9 Amber Mellow easy drinking light amber ale brewed with traditional hops.

Fintry Brewing Company Stronend Black IPA 3.9 IPA A clean tasting dark ale with a pleasingly bitter finish.
Tryst Tryst Brockville Dark 3.8 Mild Garnet coloured and full tasting with hints of liquorice and roasted grains our Mild has proved it’s pedigree over the years.

Tryst Tropico

Tryst Raj 5.5 IPA A full bodied traditional IPA recipe loaded with hops. Part of the Tryst core range for over a decade. Multi-award winning; CAMRA Champion beer of Scotland 2016.
Kinneil Brewhouse Kinneil Brewhouse Keepy Uppy 67 4.5 Scottish Heavy Brewed to celebrate Scotland beating England in 1967.
Bellfield Bellfield Lawless Village IPA 4.5 IPA A copper coloured, aromatic beer brewed as a traditional American IPA made with pale crystal malts and Cascade and Centennial American hops for a modern, citrusy finish.

Bellfield Bohemian Pilsner 4.5 Pilsner A classic Czech pilsner style, featuring Saaz, a noble hop, pale with a light body, background bitterness and gentle floral tones leading to a soft finish. 
Harviestoun Harviestoun Wheat Beastie 4.3 Wheat Wheat beer infused with lemon verbena leaves and coriander.
Beath Beath Mad World 4.0 Porter Loads of roasted and cara malt, cascade hops, make this a great dark ale maybe a bit mad with the amount of roasted malt.
Hebridean Hebridean Celtic Black 3.9 Mild Full of flavour, balancing an aromatic hop combined with a subtle bite and a pleasantly smooth caramel after taste.
Strathaven Strathaven Craigmill Mild 3.5 Mild A black ale from a blend of hops producing a chocolate aroma with a subtle orange zest aftertaste
Swanney Swanney Dark Munro 4.0 Mild A fantastic dark/rub red single hopped mild with smooth malt flavours and hints of coffee.

Fallen Grapevine 5.4 APA Big tropical and citrus fruit flavours and aromas that devlope into a lasting bitterness.
Wetherspoons Oakham Enough Rope 4.3 Golden Ale Bursting with tropical fruit and citrus flavours leading to a powerful yet balanced bitternes and a dry, refreshing finish.

Loch Lomond Loch Lomond Take the Rye Road 4.6 Rye Hoppy Red Rye

Loch Lomond Souther Summit 4.0 Golden Ale Light blonde but highly hopped with summit and citra hops.
Carlsberg Robinsons Magnum IPA 4.1 Golden Ale Golden, like a Polynesian sunset with hints of lemon, lime and exotic flora.

Ringwood Boondoggle 4.2 Golden Ale A blonde and luscious ale – the perfect excuse. Brewed with the finest English Pale Malt, Goldings, Herkules, Cascade and Styrian Bobek hops.

Long Man Old Man 4.3 Old Ale This original dark beer has soft malt notes of coffee and chocolate that combine with a pleasant light hoppiness to create a rich, full tasting Old Ale of times gone by.

Sadler's Peaky Blinder 4.4 IPA Brewed with five different malts and five different hop varieties. Dark and delicious, yet refreshing and hoppy.

Thornbridge Jaipur 5.9 IPA A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.
Firkin Express Spey Valley Davids Not So Bitter 4.4 Bitter Smooth, malty and sweet, good body with plenty of hoppy aroma – not too bitter and not too strong.

Eyeball Yellowball 4.9 Golden Ale A pale, intensely malty lager that celebrates the flavours that pale malt can bring to a beer: rich, toasty, bready, with a hint of sweetness. At a time when hops are often given top billing, Yellowball lager makes malt the star of the show. Think Munich Helles on overdrive. The finish is clean with full carbonation, for an easy drinking, crisp beer.

Wooha Lager 5.0 Golden Ale Bright and light not too hoppy or bitter.
Lerwick Lerwick Azure 4.3 Golden Ale Azure is named after the colour of the Pacific Ocean as we’ve used hops from either side of the Pacific, Rakau from New Zealand and Cascade from America. This light ale has a refreshingly floral and elderflower nose and taste followed by a bitterness which ties all the flavours together.

Lerwick Vaelensi 6.0 Amber Has flavours of honey, chili and ginger.
