IT’S THE RE-ALE DEAL!
In your face big brewerie! You may have owned the high street once, but not anymore. You see it’s all going local in the huge market of the bitter drinker. The age old picture of the tankard and toby jug and the old man sitting at the end of the bar has been well and truly swept away. The insurgence of micro-breweries and the re-branding of the whole ale image have meant the traditional English pint will keep moving forward with the times.
In Sussex alone there are huge numbers of real ale producers. Barlogic will always support these products not just because they are local, but also superbly made and the quality of taste is amazing. The two brewers that stand out to us in the area are Hepworth of Horsham and Darkstar of Partridge Green.
Not only do these guys know how to make a wide range of stunning ales, but they know their markets too. Lewes might still be dominated by Harveys, but Lewes is not Brighton and that’s where these guys are starting to really target. Either as guest ale or as the regular fixture, there are not many pubs and bars about now that don’t serve a pint of “local”.
Granted prices have gone up, but that’s across the board. So if you want to get value for what you pay for, and make sure your taste buds are satisfied by more than a lager full of chemicals and lack of taste. (It says a lot about the UK lager market when the trendiest pint about is Italian!Peroni) Join us for a tipple; these are just a couple of the fantastic real ales I recommend and the reasons why. Happy ale drinking!
A dark mellow beer with a hint of burnt smoky sweet flavour & restrained bitterness from the Golding hops. Brewed with mixed grist including Chocolate malted barley.
