New Beer and Cider Notes
The eagle-eyed amongst you might have noticed a few new bottles on the shelves in the Social. This is our new beer range, something we’re very excited about. We originally planned to focus on London beers but we figured that you’re in London – you can get great local beers pretty much anywhere these days. What we settled on is a short list of British classics from all across the country. It’s a work in progress and hopefully always will be – we’ll try to change based on demand, on seasonality and occasionally on whim.
Moor Nor’Hop 4.3%, 660ml
Described as “ultra pale, ultra modern, ultra hoppy”, Nor’ Hop is brewed with plenty
of Northern Hemisphere hops by Somerset’s finest Moor and it does exactly what it says on the tin (bottle). Sold in a 660ml bottle, this is great for sharing or for the kind of drinkers who feel shortchanged with a pint. This beer is unfined meaning it’s meant to pour hazy.
The Kernel Table Beer 3.1%, 330ml
The Kernel is one of the capital’s most consistently brilliant breweries – often inventive, always exceptionally good. Table Beer is their ‘session’ brew – usually around the 3% abv mark (changes with each brew) and featuring a selection of hop varieties, this is that rarest of beasts – a gloriously full flavoured, low(er) alcohol ale.
Sonnet 43 Brown Ale 4.7%, 500ml
A modern take on the undisputed Northern classic ‘Newkie Brown’, this is a truly quaffable nutty brown beer from the Sonnet 43 brewery in Co Durham. The taste of the Tyne right here in W1.
Tiny Rebel Full Nelson 4.8%, 330ml
This ‘Maori Pale Ale’ comes from our current favourite brewery in the UK, Newport’s Tiny Rebel. Brewed with Nelson Sauvin hops (named after the Sauvignon Blanc grape), Full Nelson is fruity, crisp and incredibly refreshing.
Sandford Orchard Devon Red 4.5% 500ml
The sticker on the bottle says it all – this is ‘proper cider’. There’s not much else to say other than Devon Red is an award winning drop from the West Country… accept no imitations!
