Keeping it real … Real Ale

Beers of the North – Leyton Orient Supporters Club 27th January

Friday 27th January the Leyton Orient Supporters Club will be having an evening featuring some excellent beers brewed by breweries from “The North”! Over the past couple years we have had some fantastic meet the brewers and tap take overs from breweries from London and the South but we felt it was time we represented some beer north of the Watford Gap. We have 10 great beers to serve over the evening, some special bottles and cans too. With new exciting breweries such as Almasty Brewing Co and Blackjack alongside certified excellence such as Marble and Thornbridge.

All cask beer is £3.20 a pint as usual, all 330ml bottles and cans are £3 each, apart from Hawkshead Brodies Prime Export which are £4 each, and 330ml+ bottles are £3.50. Doors open at 5pm and it is free entry to all. We look forward to seeing all of you.

Oh and sorry to say… But beers will be served sparkler free.. Sorry!

Marble Brewery – Pint 3.9% – Manchester
This dry session bitter has a light malt base carrying a wonderful display of New Zealand hops, notes of citrus and grapefruit. Brewed to have plenty of character for an everyday bitter.

Outlaw Brewing Co (Roosters Brewing Co) – Weakender 3% – Knaresborough, Yorkshire
A triple hopped pale ale brewed under the Outlaw Brewing Co. banner. Cascade, Crystal and Simcoe hops combine to create this fruity little number.

Red Willow – Sleepless 5.4% – Macclesfield, Cheshire
This American style amber ale made with red Rye and generously hopped with Nelson, Galaxy and Amarillo to give lush tropical fruit flavours over a rich malt body and a long satisfying bitter finish.

Hawkshead Brewery – Great White 4.8% – Staveley, Cumbria
A spiced, cloudy, wheat beer. Brewed with wheat, Maris Otter barley, coriander seeds, dried Seville Orange peel and Motueka hops from New Zealand, to produce a delicately hopped, crisp, highly refreshing beer.

Almasty Brewing Co – Chocolate & Vanilla Stout 6% – Newcastle
Big bodied oatmeal stout with a blend of chocolate and roasted malts with post boil additions of cacao nibs. Vanilla pods are added to balance out the chocolate bitterness.

Thornbridge Brewery – Kipling 5.2% – Ashford-in-the-Water near Bakewell, Derbyshire
South Pacific Pale Ale. Golden blonde beer with an exquisite passion fruit, gooseberry and mango aroma. An initial sweetness and full body are balanced by a lasting grapefruit-like bitter finish.

Saltaire Brewery – Elderflower Blonde 4% – Shipley, Yorkshire
A refreshing blonde ale delicately infused with the flavour of elderflower.

Bad Seed – Oatmeal Stout 4% – Malton, North Yorkshire
Dark, rich and roasted. Notes of biscuit, coffee and chocolate. Perfect for winter time this stout is designed to be drunk next to a roaring open fire. Unfined and unfiltered.

Hawkshead Brewery – Brodies Prime Export 8.5% – Staveley, Cumbria (BOTTLES £4 EACH)
Brodie’s Prime Export has been aged for 9 months in oak casks last filled with red wine (Pinot Noir grape) from Burgundy, producing a deep, dark, rich, malty winter ale to savour now or allow to mature further.

Hawkshead Brewery – ITI 3.5% – Staveley, Cumbria (CANS)
A laid back, session-strength IPA bursting with juicy hop aromas and flavours of citrus & tropical fruits, it’s best served with music!

Marble Brewery – Lagonda IPA 5% – Manchester (500ml BOTTLES)
An India pale ale with a golden malt base complimenting a quadruple addition of hops. All of which precede a floral and bitter finish. A proud contemporary classic, just like its name sake the 1927 Lagonda.
