Late lunchtime- a swift one before tackling the lung-busting climb up the hill. Drizzly, so no one outside. A group of golfers inside chatting about par this and that and getting totally muddled between ABV and degrees proof when discussing the strengths of exotic spirits. Tried a Unit 1 IPA at 4.2 but it was cold and fizzy. My mistake - not obvious it was keg.

This has really developed since the picture taken in 2016 - good seating, large umbrellas and even some outdoor heating - not needed today. Well exercised COVID precautions. I sat outside in the warms sunshine with about 30 others. Good table service and a couple of excellent Hop Fuzz beers.

Hop Fuzz - Fallout3.60ExcellentSuperb beer at a low ABV

Short walk with the family along the canal and then we were inside just after 12 bagging the comfy corner table (an upcycled cable drum) next to the wood burning stove. By the time we’d finished our drinks, and rather good bake potatoes, all tables inside and out were occupied - each with a dog it would seem. We like this place.
Hop Fuzz - Bullion Bomb5.00ExcellentNow sold just as “Bullion” A winner with my son and son-in-law.
Hop Fuzz - Small Batch No. 3 Best Bitter4.00ExcellentSmooth, tasty trad bitter. Marked up as “Small Batch (best bitter) 4.0”
