Oh, it has happened on Saturday night. Witches, vampires, ghosts and … beer. A real stunning mixture.
Saturday evening was devoted to Halloween. Well because, how else.
We sat at a table at our favorite pub and admired the inventiveness of celebrating Halloween – a cross-section form from various myths, legends, fairy tales, movies and what else.
By the way, of course, we tasted a few beers.
The first was Carafa Jade – beer from Dark Star Brewery, located on Southern England (Patridge Green, West Sussex).
The beginnings of the brewery dates back to 1994, started in the cellar of a pub in Brighton. Business quickly developed to such an extent that at the moment can be proud of truly impressive list of awards and titles. See for yourselves: list is impressive.
The name of beer – Carafa Jade comes from used to its brewing German Carafa malt, which gives a brown color and the New Zealand Pacific Jade hops.
It started coming around more and more bizarre characters.
Sometimes we felt a little uncomfortable, sometimes we laughed.
The second described beer comes from Wall’s Brewery, and is called Uncle Sam’s Black IPA.
This is a relatively young brewery, founded in 2011, is located in Northallerton (North Yorkshire).
With every minute into the pub began to pack more and more creatures not of this world.
I asked for a beer that name very fit for this evening – Witch Craft.
It comes from Wickwar Brewing Company, which is located in the south-west of England – Wickwar. Founded in 1990 as a microbrewery over the years expanded its business significantly.
At that time the pub was experiencing a real storm of strange individuals.
And in the end even I had a taste of beer with a very twisted name: Marshmallow Meltdown Stout.
The beer made in Abbeydale Brewery from Sheffield, which is the relatively young (founded in 1996). For its production is added to the marshmallow syrup – I was curious about its taste.
That was this my Halloween evening spent in the pub Old No.7 in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England 😀
