Nottinghamshire is brimming with an array of great pubs and bars, with craft beer becoming increasingly present throughout the city centre and beyond.
Endorsed by Experience Nottinghamshire, the Creative Quarter, Nottingham BID and the City Council, the first Craft Beer Week to be held outside London is packed with venues celebrating beer. Whether it’s in keg, bottles or cask, whether it’s a sweet fruit beer or a tongue twisting sour beer; there’s (at least) one for you this Nottingham Craft Beer Week 2015.
At Castle Rock, brewer Dan Gililand has created his latest masterpiece for the Traffic Street Specials range: #5 Maggie’s Farm is an apricot and ginger saison at 4% abv. It’s anideal brew for a sunny day or balmy evening; refreshing, flavourful, and skilfully crafted. Look out for it on Castle Rock bars throughout NCBW and beyond.
Discover World Beers is of course at the forefront of Nottingham’s craft and world beer scene, bringing to our bars the most prestigious and unique brews from across the globe. There’s loads going on in our pubs so read on to see what’s happening, and be sure to tweet using the hastag #NCBW15 – we’d love to hear from you.
