On tap we have a great offering of local IPAs and world class lagers. Alongside our resident ale Frigate from Irving Brewery. Frigate is a golden bitter with citrus hop flavour derived from the generous addition of English Challenger and Styrian Goldings hops in the hopback. Complemented by a background toffee sweetness from the subtle use of light crystal and cara-malt.
