Quite busy on a Thursday afternoon.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Everards (see entries against Joule's & Robinsons from now on) - Regimental IPA5.00AcceptableStrong amber bitter not really hoppy enough to be called an IPA. Quite bitter but from malt rather than hop. My score 14/20.

The pub is found in Derby, Derbyshire, DE1 2RU.

Lovely pub that was part of the original Midland Railway village. Flat iron building 5 minutes walk from Derby railway station. Multiple rooms. Real red leather seats. Brewery at rear with lots of railway and pub memorabilia on walls. Home of the Brunswick Brewery which is managed separately from the pub. A long standing licensee here retired in early 2013. Real ale price discount for card carrying CAMRA members. 16 handpumps in total in banks of 6, 5 & 5. The two banks of 5 have (at Spring 2014) been fitted with dual outlet nozzles for each pump - 1 with a swan's neck and sparkler and the other with a straight tap with a screw fitting for an optional sparkler. The units were manufactured by CFBS (Colin Farrar Brewery Services of Keighley). There are also 3 handpumps in the upstairs function room.

We have visited this pub 36 times, seen 139 different beers and tried 32 of them.
