epic24 Ales

We know this is really important to some of you attending epic24, so here are the real ale choices for the next event, as always from the local Kettering-based Potbelly Brewery

  • Penalty Snout Out (4.0%) - New brew with Centennial, Simcoe and a good dose of Citra giving a hoppy flavoursome pale IPA
  • Beijing Black (4.4%) - A strong dark mild, mild but not meek!
  • Hedonism (4.5%) - A light coloured bitter with a citrus hoppy flavour, brewed to give a lifting but not overpowering flavour.
  • S.O.S (6.66%) - Winner of Strong Ale Northants CAMRA 2016. Superb fruity flavoured deep red. 

Oh and of course the Rhubarb cider is back, it wouldn't be a summer LAN without it!
