Have a good day all πŸ™‚

Well that’s a Tuesday. ….

Thornbridge now shelved and already on the way out the door 😁 Scrawl is a newbie for us and a welcome return for Twin Peaks…..

A new brewery for us is Hop Back from way down in Wiltshire. ….important for us with Crop Circle been our first Gluten Free beer, others been sourced……

And something that’s a little bit different but worth a try again, proved popular last time and now accompanied by a side kick πŸ˜‰

image

And there’s more

Opps….forgot about these from yesterday……..well I didn’t πŸ˜‰ enough said me thinks……enjoy image The Rogues make a welcome return, the others are making their BH debut……well over 120 beers in “Continental Corner” now……..

Time for a Move

We have now that many Continental beers that they no longer fit in Continental Corner of the Beer Cafe, so the Americans have had to move out. They now have their own space, we will be putting up flags, albeit small ones to help you find them, or we could just let you have a rummage around. πŸ˜‰
