Drink at the Cardinal’s Hat

Marstons - Oyster Stout 4.5% ABV

(Wolverhampton) Dark in colour with a mocha coloured head and a slightly fruity aroma with a hint of chocolate. It delivers a rich, smooth, full bodied flavour.

Hogans - Hogans 4.5% ABV

(Alcester) A medium dry cider with a distinctive, appley aroma and some peaty notes. Well-balanced on the palate, Hogan’s draught has an abundance of classic cider apple tannins and a pleasing complexity.

Westons - Old Rosie 7.3% ABV

(Herefordshire) Mid golden in colour, Old Rosie is a traditional, unfiltered, cloudy cider matured in oak vats. This classic ‘scrumpy cider’ is medium-bodied with a wonderful aroma of wild berry-fruits, honey and vintage cider barrels.

Wychwood Brewery - Hobgoblin 4.5% ABV

(Oxfordshire) Traditionally craft brewed, featuring a blend of rich and satisfying flavours from Chocolate and Crystal malts, combined with a rounded bitterness from Styrian, Golding and Fuggles hops to produce a full-bodied ruby beer with an overall fruity character.

Thatchers - Cheddar Valley 6% ABV

(Somerset) Produced from a blend of English apples, Cheddar Valley is a naturally cloudy cider with a unique hazy orange colour. Fermented and matured in oak vats to ensure the distinctive full flavour is retained. Quite dry, but with a hint of fruit sweetness.

Bayreuther Bierbrauerei - Original Landbier Dunkel 5.4% ABV

(Bayreuth, Germany) Landbier FRÄNKISCH DUNKEL is a full bottom-fermented beer, robust and full-bodied in flavor, left in its natural state and dark in color. The classic selection of special roasted malt and pale barley malt grown in Franconia and the spring water from the Fichtel mountains, endows it with its typical character and the fine malt fragrance. Brewed in the good old-fashioned way, it develops over a long fermenting and maturing period to emerge as a very well balanced and extremely agreeable specialty beer. A dark lager beer with a flavor of caramel and bread crust.

Purity Brewing Co - Mad Goose 4.2% ABV

(Warwickshire) Light copper in colour with a zesty hop character and citrus overtones. Brewed with English Maris Otter, Caragold and Wheat malts with Hallertau Northern Brewer bittering hops and Cascade and Willamette aroma hops.

Wye Valley Brewery - HPA 4% ABV

(Herefordshire) A pale hoppy ale which is smooth on the palate and boasts a citrus hop aroma before leading to a balanced bitter finish. Brewed with locally grown Target and Celeia hops, Maris Otter pale malt and malted wheat.

Cotswold Lion - Golden Fleece 4.4% ABV

(Cotswolds) An IPA packed with citrus grapefruity flavours.
