We are delighted to announce that the excellent Sheffield-Peak District brewer, Bradfield will have their ales showcased during October...........They rarely travel south and it is unusual to see their range in Nottingham anywhere........famous for their Farmers Range, the Lion will be stocking as many as we we can including Farmers Blonde, Farmers Bitter, Farmers Brown Cow and the Halloween beer Jack O Lantern.........many of the beers are award winning and have distinctive pump clips...........check their website at www.bradfieldbrewery.co.uk
Pub People's brewer of the month is run in several pubs in the Nottingham area including here at the Lion aswell as the Waggon and Horses, Bunkers Hill and the Plough all in Nottingham, the Maltshovel and Hop Pole in Beeston, the Rutland Cottage and the Poacher in Ilkeston, the Great Northern in Langley Mill, the Queens Head in Marlpool, the Steampacket in Swanwick, the King Alfred in Alfreton, the Midland and the Thorn Tree in Ripley and the Black Swan in Edwinstowe. If you have any brewers that you would like us to bring onto the list then make contact through the website www.thelionatbasford.co.uk
We will be looking to develop this successful promotion into a Cider Producer of the Month...........interest in real cider is growing rapidly but the main producers lag behind the microbrewers in terms of their PR and promotional activity..........watch out for some good stuff in the coming weeks.........The Steampacket at Swanwick, run by Amanda, has won the Amber Valley CAMRA Cider Pub of The Year........which is brilliant news and she will be live on BBC Radio Derby tomorrow morning.
Back here, we stock 10 real ciders for you choose from every day with a separate chalk board.........ask for a sample at the bar.........
Looks like the weather will be warm and sunny so the new patio is getting plenty of use.........call in for a tea time beer tonight
John and Josie
