Old No.7 has won many awards and titles Pub of the Year. My favourite.
Today, a few words about him.
Old No.7 is a pub located on Market Street Hill 7 in the center of Barnsley.
The regional branch of CAMRA awarded him the title of Pub of the Year in 2012-2015. He has also won many local awards.
It opened in August 2011 as a pub of Acorn Brewery. Therefore we find always here a few beers from this plant, both offer permanent or seasonal.
In addition, at least six other beers – from regional breweries, but also from all over the country and often a guest some kegs from the United States.
The present beers here are of course real–ale from independent small breweries, but also for lovers of lager or cider can also something finds.
In addition here is a nice variety of bottled beers. There are English ales from craft breweries and a selection of beers from the continent, such as Belgian or German.
Old No.7 is a place quite cozy, nicely decorated, there is a typical English pub atmosphere. No wonder, he enjoys great popularity fans of great beer. And although it is sometimes really crowded here, all the more we feel like in a real public house.
A visit to this climate place is opportunity to taste a good beer or meetings with friends. In addition are often held concerts – so, there is also live music, and several times a year the beer festival is organized (currently in progress – report in the next post).
That on the occasion of large events run a second room, which is located in the basement of the pub – then offer of beer significantly increased.
Being a quite regular visitor here I had the opportunity try a range of beers; I think that at some time I’ll report from my tasting in Old No.7.
Today I will mention a few of them.
Acorn Endavour IPA is well hoppy beer with an alcohol content is 5% vol. A beautiful amber color, distinctive bitter taste – freshest beer with the use of hops from this year’s harvest.

White Cloud came from the brewery Wiper and True from Bristol (UK). This is India Pale Ale with the use of New Zealand hops with a very pleasing taste citrus and fruit. The alcohol content is 6% vol.
Then the Saltaire Brewery (Shipley, West Yorkshire) from where they come a great awarded beers, I had the opportunity to try New World RED.
Expressive deep red color, very malty, citrus noticeable. Produced involving American, Australian, and New Zealand hops. Alcohol 5.2% vol.
And yet Black Jesus from the brewery Great Heck (North Yorkshire). It’s black as pitch black IPA, strong (6.5%) with a clear chocolate–coffee flavor and the same taste. Well perceptible bitter taste is from American hops. The winner of Selby Beer Festival 2013.
That’s all for today.
