Adnams Mosiac- Pale Ale at perfect session strength 4.1% Always a favourite
Vedett Extra Blonde- 5% – Is it a craft beer? It might not be a micro or small batch beer BUT I challenge you to fault its delicious crisp taste. Another Ringwood (and possibly New Forest) exclusive on draft. It’s a lot a better than Heineken.
Innis and Gunn Original- 6.8% Oak aged hand made small batch beer. A little strong but the perfect to close to an evening of sampling craft beer.
Brewdog Dead Pony Club- 3.8% Another American style this time West Coast. Supremely slurpable and a great Strength.
