Quite a long time since I visited the pub Old No.7 in Barnsley. Time to catch up.
Today at the bar beers from Acorn, Magic Rock, Wickwar.
It so happened that it’s my first visit this year in my favorite pub.
I must add that for two weeks place was closed for renovation. Refreshed hall, bar, but also built completely new toilets – a very important element of well-functioning pub 😉
The main thing that finally I came in here with visit.
I knew roughly what beers I can be expect thanks to current information from Twitter and Facebook, which Old No.7 publishes regularly on their profiles.
So, the first one went a pint of brand new Acorn’s IPA.
Hallertau Blanc IPA is another India Pale Ale from tireless Acorn Brewery.
This is single hop beer – beer that is brewed with only one variety of hops. As the name suggests, this obviously means German hops Hallertau Blanc.
This aromatic variety is compared with New Zealand Nelson Sauvin.
It gives the fruit flavours (mango, pineapple, grapefruit, gooseberry) and floral at the same time.
I was very curious about this ale.
Subsequently, I could not let go of the opportunity to try two beers from Magic Rock Brewery.
This brewery from Huddersfield accustomed me already to products at a very high level.
The first, which I asked was Redolent Rye.
This beer is brewed with rye, as India Pale Ale, with an alcohol content 6% abv.
The second beer from Magic Rock was Common Grounds, or how it defines the brewery: Triple Coffee Porter.
It’s really coffee beer was created in cooperation with the coffee roaster Dark Woods near Huddersfield.
Gentlemen from Magic Rock have always wanted to do such beer and finally come to fruition – the final result would not be in line with expectations, if not for the high-quality coffee.
In the production process was used 7 types of malts and 7 different coffee varieties added three times during brewing.
That’s the final result just I have before me in the form of a glass of porter.
And finally, one more beer memo.
This beer I had the opportunity to try during one of the earlier visit in the pub.
This is Falling Star from Wickwar Brewing in southern England.
Once I tried their ruby ale Witch Craft on Halloween, this time it’s a golden ale brewed with Maris Otter malt and a set of three varieties of hops: Cascade and Willamette (aromatic varieties from the US) and Mittlefruh (German noble aromatic-spicy variety).
And that’s all for today.
See you in the pub next time and to the next post.
Hold on and greet
