Early evening and fairly quiet, our group's arrival easily doubled the amount of customers. Only one cask beer on offer compared to a sea of keg varieties which was disappointing.

Hop Stuff - Single Hop Ekuanot4.20GoodDespite only using one variety of hop this was full on with lingering intensity - I can still taste and smell it 12 hours later!

I was eagerly anticipating my first visit here only to find it closed. Disappointed hence we decided to pop in The Swan around the corner.

I had arranged to meet Jason (aka Magnus) here at around 4.30pm as their web site stated that the pub opens at 4pm on Tuesdays. We waited for some time but there was no sign of life inside so we eventually moved on to the Swan. I found out the following morning that there was a mention on Twitter that they would not be open this Tuesday but as neither of us do Twitter we (and a fair number of other prospective customers) were not aware of that.

Two of us arrived for the grand opening at 4pm. The CAMRA discount button on the till did not work so we gladly accepted two pints for the price of one. The pub soon got very busy which is only to be expected on opening night.

Hop Stuff - El Dorado Single Hop4.20ExcellentI was told this was the first time that this beer has been on sale so I was quite pleased to get the first one out. Quite moreish and refreshing, a little hazy.
Hop Stuff - Fusilier4.30Good

My third attempt and at last a successful attempt to avoid the trick or treating nuisance.
