New Draught Beers

Torrside have come up with 2 new beers so we thought we’d try them out.

They’re both available for you to buy in our shop. So get your flagons ready… go ;o)

Father’s Day

Well it’s been an interesting couple of days! The takeaway service has been going so well we ran out of flagons for the draught beer. I managed to source some more on Thursday – for delivery today (Saturday). But the supplier was expecting DPD Local to deliver – they don’t do Saturdays. Which meant I had to go up to the DPD depot at Denton this morning & hope they’d arrived!! Thankfully they were there – so panic over.

But… when I got back to the bar we found we had just enough draught beer to supply the orders for Father’s Day. If we received any more we’d be knackered! One of the great features of being a new bar – we don’t know how much we’re going to sell!!

It’s not easy to find a draught beer supplier on a Saturday. But, shout out to Chris at Torrside Brewing in New Mills for coming back to us so quickly. We now have 3 extra ales for home delivery (or pickup) on our online shop. Only had the chance to try the IPA properly – it’s very good – citrus flavours. The Amber and Bitter taste good but only had a sip of them – I’ll have a proper taste during the week.

Anyway, we’re all stocked up & raring to go for Father’s Day delivery – we don’t normally deliver on Sundays but we’ve made an exception for all you lovely sons & daughters who are buying for their Dads.
