Regular Ale sampling nights take place throughout the year.
We are proud members of the Cask Marque scheme which promotes good quality Real Ale, through good cellar practice.
Real Ales - Now available on tap
Hop Backs Summer Lightning is a trendsetter in the brewing industry; the original Summer ale brewed all year round.
Summer Lightening is an extremely pleasant bitter, straw coloured beer with a terrific fresh, hoppy aroma. This, coupled with an intense bitterness, leads to an excellent long, dry finish. Probably the beer to receive the most awards in Britain!
Hophead at 3.8% is one of our most popular beers and has a huge following across the south coast and I am sure even much further.
Hophead is a pale golden colour, cool crisp and refreshing with a slight hoppy bitterness. Many of our customers who drink it say that they seem to get drunk drinking this as opposed to drinking some of the stronger beers. That's because it's too 'moreish' and they always end up drinking more than they realise!
From time to time, in addition to Hophead, we will also be serving other Ales from Dark Star's excellent range.
A bronze best bitter from Downton Brewery
New Forest Ale is a bronze coloured best bitter. A combination of roasted malts and rich, aromatic hops provide a well rounded flavour and a distinctive hoppy bitterness.
