Pomona was a staple on cask and keg during pub hours, we've missed them but luckily they've managed to get some great cans to us today from Salford. With a few more next week.
We were lucky enough to obtain some Deya today. If you manage to grab some then well done and enjoy. Its tasting fabulous as ever, as I sit here writing this update I'm drinking the DIPA. This will be the last from Deya for over 2 weeks, they have been selling massive amounts direct so we struggle to get a look in at present. But good on them and hopefully they'll do well through this tough lock-down period. Keep an eye on their website.

Naparbier started in 2009 in Pamplona, Navarra, Spain — a place probably best known for bullfights and Hemingway.
They're are focused on freshness — with the exception of something like an imperial stout, their beers shouldn’t be aged, they say — as well as creativity. Head Brewer Juan Rodriguez is passionate and innovative, exploring both classic styles and more out-there endeavors, like the Pumpkin Tzar Russian Imperial Stout, brewed with pumpkin and habañero chile. They also recently launched a new range of “avant-garde” beers that the brewer calls “a little bit different” from what they usually brew, including a Belgian dubbel and a barley wine aged in whisky barrels.
Dry & Bitter Brewing Company, Denmark was founded in early 2015 with a strong focus on brewing some of Europe’s finest hoppy beers. They have an ambitious sour program, working both with fruited kettle soured beer and barrel aged funky saisons and sours.

The Lendal pub was up tonight for the Visit York Pub of the Year award. The finalists were @TremblingMad (Lendal) @The_Ackhorne @thebotanistuk York and @TheDroversArms. We didn't get it this time but a huge congratulations to the winners The Drovers Arms. Here at Trembling Madness we have all worked so hard to get a new pub up and running in an amazing historic building. It would have been our 2nd birthday very soon if not for the lockdown and current situation.
I do hope the UK hospitality industry has some positive feedback and support from the UK Government. I note that some journalists are saying that drinking is an issue and pubs are responsible. Drinking is an issue and people are still drinking at home, a lot of people are drinking more in isolation. Hospitality is so important in society. The pub is a positive place, a happy place, a place to socialise, meet family, friends and to give many lonely people a place to interact. Most couples meet their partners in pubs, a place for romance, conversation. Our pubs have walking groups, police meetings, breastfeeding groups, tours, weddings, gaming nights and so many diverse functions.
Owners of these establishments have invested there life, hard work, time and money into their businesses. The current opinion that there will always be another business to replace them is terrible.
Landlords are still charging rent and there is no income. Its as simple as if rent is frozen we survive. Pubs will be the last places to fully open.
Stay safe everyone and see you on the other side x
This craft brewery based in Deal, Kent, focuses on quality and flavour, making juicy, hoppy creative beers. If you haven't had them before then give them a go. Highly rated on Untappd and highly rated by us. Four fresh arrivals from their chilled storage in today.
One of our favourite breweries bringing you hop forward modern craft beers. Fresh in stock, a great Northern Powerhouse.
Fresh drops from Abbeydale, Salt, Rudgate, Arbor, Magic Rock plus the range of Kernel!
One of the grandfathers of the London craft beer scene, Kernel Brewery was founded by Evan O'Riordain back in 2010. His mission then was to brew beer worthy of attention, and was one of the first UK breweries to brew huge, hop-forward IPAs. Now internationally recognised as one of the best breweries in the world, Evan's beers changed the way that people drank in the capital and was the inspiration behind most of the new wave of London breweries. They still brew in small batches and now produce wonderful sours and fantastic porters and stouts.
One of my favourite highlights of the beer calendar "Hop City" was a year ago today as my phone reminded me this morning. No doubt we'll make up for it and all pull together a great festival once this is all over. A big thanks goes out to all those breweries still managing to produce fantastic beer during this period, and also good luck to all those who have knuckled down hibernating until this is over.
Northern Monk have managed to keep things going and we have a new exciting release Monday morning - this beer sounds fantastic and it's extremely limited so you need to be quick ! We have found some Heathen stock if you miss out.
We'll try to update everyone with anything that's exciting or new. Give us some feedback!
