Meantime IPA kegs arriving any day

We've been waiting a long time but I reckon it will be worth the wait - the Meantime IPA kegs (all the way from the UK) will be with us any day! We have an allocation of 3 kegs per venue so if you want to try some of this beauty, don't wait around..

Here's how the late Michael Jackson described it:
“Very few British brewers accord proper respect to the initials IPA. This elegant bottle calls for a celebration, a toast to friendship - or, if you prefer, a special relationship. If your favourite meal might be described as masala, honour it with your best appetite. Release the cork with a sight and a pop; enjoy the orangey colour; the herbal aroma of Worcestershire hops; and their flavours of sweet grass, orange zest and a hint of aniseed. This beer will make you feel very hungry indeed. Thank heavens the second blossoming of hops, from Kent this time, are a different variety: soothingly oily Goldings. A hint of clove, from the yeast? For heaven’s sake, where’s dinner?”


  1. Awesome, looking forward to some fantastic Alister Hook brewed beer!!!

    Is it also right to assume that another batch of Rogue ales are on their way to the Darlo venue soon as well?

  2. You betcha bottom dollar (re Rogue)! At this stage we'r hoping Rogue will be the Showcase for November..

  3. Cool...will help you get through them (Meantime and Rogue)!

    Any hints on which Rogue's are coming?
