Holden’s Brewery – Park Ale (3.8%)

This yesteryear classic dates back from the 1950’s and is brewed using Progress and Sovereign hops and finest English Maris Otter Malt to give a chestnut coloured beer with shortbread notes, a hint of chocolate on the nose resulting in an easy drinking traditional Black Country beer.

XT Brewing – XT1 Blonde (4.2%)

Citrus and fruity hops flirt with reserved English barley and some very naughty Bohemian malts to make a characterful blonde ale that you’ll want to meet again.

Raw Brewing – Baby Ghost IPA (3.9%)

Powerful American hopped IPA with citrus and grapefruit flavours. Smooth and deceptively easy to drink. This ale is the “baby” version of Grey Ghost IPA, brought down from 5.9% to a session-able 3.9% losing none of it character along the way
