Proper Job is a refreshing barbeque drink which is fantastic with marinaded meats, burgers and flame grilled sausages.

Sussex Gold

Sussex Gold

Arundel Brewery in Arundel

4.2%

Arundel Brewery has been operating since 1992 – Sussex Gold at 4.2% is a great ale. We try to have it on our pumps a few times a year.

Tasting Notes

Sussex Gold is a rich golden beer with a hoppy, citrus finish. Very smooth, light and refreshing.

Hophead

Dark Star in West Sussex

3.8%

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.

Tasting Notes

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.
