Craft Corner
BreweryBeerABV (%)Tasting Notes
BeavertownTottenham Hale, Greater LondonNeck Oil4.3The name comes from an old Black Country term: 'I'm going down the pub for a pint of neck oil!' Pale, crisp, light, and hoppy this is a low-ABV session IPA than you can drink from 8am in the morning, all day, every day.
BlackjackManchester, Greater ManchesterBlack Maria5.8A Columbus hopped Black IPA. You'll get a hoppy aroma, a light body, a stout colour, and tasty roasty malty flavours. Made with heaps of lovely US hops for that bit of bite.
BrickPeckham, LondonPeckham IPA6.5A long time to perfect, this is Brick's version of an American style IPA; and they're rightly proud of their work. Expect a lot of hops with a malty backnote. Columbus, Chinook, Summit, and Citra hops give a citrus and tangerine character.
Burning SkyFirle, East SussexArise4.4'Shall we get one or two of these?' was the question. 'Get three because it's that good!' was the answer. And it is! Not too much bitterness with peach, pine, and hops. It's billed as a Session IPA that's perfect for the start or the end of the day. Get it at the start, because by the end there might be none left.
ShinyLittle Eaton, DerbyshireFallout4.2Gluten Free

A dangerously drinkable low-ABV Session IPA brewed with Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops.
Tiny RebelMonmouthshire, RogerstoneStay Puft5.2Remember Ghostbusters? 'I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.' There's no need to be afraid of this luxurious marshmallow porter. Think of toasting marshmallows over a camp fire. The roasty toasty taste gives way to that delicious marshmallow sweetness. A perfect treat for a cold winter's night.
TwinshockAtherton, Greater ManchesterAstley Ale5Pale ale from Atherton's new brewery. Malts, caramel, and a shot of hops will leave you wanting more.
TwinshockAtherton, Greater ManchesterMilk Mon5This delicious milk stout has travelled less than 900m from the brewery to the festival. When you drink it you are saving beer-miles and doing your bit for the environment. Save a polar bear. Drink Milk Mon.
VocationCragg Vale, West YorkshireNaughty & Nice7.5Let's be honest. When you see a milk stout at 7.5% you're expecting something special aren't you? Well bring it on. Bold, chocolaty, and decidedly decadent this is a beer to sip and savour. It's a little bit naughty, but very, very nice. Treat yourself, because you deserve it.
Wiper and TrueBristol, GloucestershirePale Ale Kaleidoscope4Kaleidoscope is an evolving series of the same beer made with three different hops that change seasonally. So the beer you drink with us will be subtly different to the Kaleidoscopes of the future. It is named after the colour changing optics that use three internal mirrors to make an ever-changing pattern. Cute huh? It's bright, and refreshing, and well worth trying.
