Another visit to the pub Old No.7 resulted in a tasting of four beers.
I chose ales from breweries Acorn, Tiny Rebel, Hardknott, Milk Street.
Traditionally a meeting place with friends was a pub in Barnsley – Old No.7.
And as usual, the choice was plenty of excellent beers. But that I have only one head I can try a limited number of liquors. I chose four ales that below I briefly present.
I invite you to read the post and who has the opportunity to visit the pub Old No.7 in Barnsley – really worth it.
Paint It Red is a special beer for the residents of Barnsley, especially for fans of the football club in this town.
Acorn Brewery decided to make a special beer to celebrate the great event in the life of Barnsley Football Club. They entered into the final of the tournament Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final 2016, which takes place … attention … today, that is, April 3 at Wembley.
On this occasion, the brewery asked fans of Barnsley FC to choose a name of this special beer. It was known that it will be a red ale – red tint beer referring to the colour of the club.
You must also know that the club from Barnsley commonly is called the Reds.
From more than 200 proposals won a name Paint It Red and beer with this name I met in a pub in yesterday’s Saturday night.
As I write these words, it takes just the final match with the team of Oxford United and it turns out that….
Barnsley FC wins in the ratio of 3: 2 final match
and wins the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy 2016.
Reds the winners!
Another ale was Zig Zag Stout from Milk Street.
This brewery has been operating since 1999 in Frome, Somerset, in Southern England.
Their Zig Zag has won several awards, and that with beers of the brewery Milk Street I did not have so far to deal with, so my choice for the next tasting was obvious.
Hardknott Brewery is another brewery unknown to me – I have not yet had the opportunity to meet any of their beers.
So using the opportunity I asked for portion of their Azimuth IPA.
The plant was established in 2005 and is now located in the foothills of Black Combe in West Cumbria (North-West England). The name refers to the Hardknott pass.
Beautifully situated brewery has a simple, but very important motto: “More great beer to more people”.
At the end I chose the beer Full Nelson from Welsh brewery Tiny Rebel.
For some time, the brewery is one of the favourites on my private list. As soon as I have the opportunity I never miss another opportunity to try beer from that brewhouse.
The name Full Nelson refers to hops used in that beer – New Zealand varieties Nelson Sauvin, known for its very aromatic profile.
