Local Beers for Local People...

Adding to our selection of local beers are new arrivals from Bromsgrove..

Nestled in Old Burcot Lane, Bromsgrove, head brewer Ian Hughes began a 6 barrel micro-brewery back in 2009

Formerly the Landlord of Bromsgrove's Hop Pole and latterly The Ladybird Inn, Ian previously operated his own micro-brewery, 'Red Cross Brewery', from outbuildings at his home

Since then Bird's has been traditionally crafted, matured, and has flown into reputable pubs to spread that rustically local taste.

Audacious  5.0%          £2.20

A stronger version of the Bronze age, still with the same deep bronze colour and brewed with Citra hops to give a citrus, dry hoppy, bitter finish to balance the delicate sweet maltiness from the pale malt and crystal malts.

Black Widow Stout  4.5%          £2.09

Dark and dangerous, Black Widow is a traditional smooth and satisfying Stout. Brewed using Phoenix and Bramling Cross hops, together with Roasted Barley, Black Widow has a roasted malt flavour with a bitter edge and overtones of blackcurrant, raisins and liquorice.

Bronze Age  4.2%          £2.09

A bronze coloured ale brewed with Citra hops to give a citrus, dry hoppy, bitter finish to balance the delicate sweet maltiness from the pale malt and crystal malts.

Mild High Club  3.7%          £2.09

A full malty flavour gives way to a dry finish with a creamy, nutty aftertaste with just a hint of dark chocolate

Natural Blonde  4.0%          £2.09

A refreshing pale blonde beer. Floral on the nose, plenty of fruit and hops in the mouth with just the right amount of malt to balance. A pleasantly hoppy aftertaste with a gently crisp bitter finish.

Nightjar   4.0%          £2.09

Brewed using First Gold hops from Suckley in Worcestershire, together with Maris Otter and Crystal Malts giving a smooth malty beer with a hint of sweetness and a distinctive nutty finish to this well balanced, easy drinking beer

Skullduggery   5.2%          £2.20

A strong tawny ale, well rounded with an initial sweetness followed by hoppiness provided by Cascade and Nelson Sauvin hops with hidden tones of molasses

Summer Daze   4.2%          £2.09

A pale golden ale with an aroma of tropical fruits and dry citrus flavour of grapefruit and peaches giving way to a pleasant hoppy finish.

Amnesia   4.5%          £2.09

A pale straw ale with a fruity zest, a slight orange citrus undertone combining with a mixture of hops to provide a dryish hoppy finish. Brewed using Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand to add a distinctive fruitiness.

Apocalypse  4.8%          £2.09

A tawny ale with a hoppy, caramel aroma, smooth malty flavour and an aftertaste of smoke and toffee, with just a hint of liquorice.  Brewed using First Gold and Fuggles hops with pale and crystal malts enhanced with West Indian molasses.
