Real ale and sky

Recommended Posts

I have said for years that there is a gap in the market for a pub that has sky sports and does real ale.

Will 'tickers' even venture into a pub that has television or a juke box?

What about people wearing grey blazers with a 'Canal Trust' lapel badge?

Tribute is alright, but if you live in Cornwall, try Cornish Crown brewery ales much better.

Have you tried Cardinal Syn and Bad Habit from St Austell Brewery?

It's definitely not for everyone but St Austell Brewery do a Baobab. It took me almost the whole pint to decide that I really enjoyed it.

Is that the witbier? I'm really looking forward to my week in Mevagissey in July. I may never leave the Ship Inn.

A couple of weeks ago the Memsahib said "We haven't been to Cornwall for the last 15 years or so". It's actually 14 - we were at the Eden Project the day Steve Harmison clobbered Ricky Ponting during the first morning of the first Ashes test - so I looked at their website and noticed the connection with St Austell Brewery - the baobab witbier that has already been mentioned. Then I looked at the St Austell Brewery website and the decision was made. A quick firtle around and I had found an interesting little B&B in Mevagissey close to the harbour, and the rest is history (if history can be in the future, of course).

The missus thinks that the attractions swung it - she's right. Beer IS an attraction (although she may be a little more interested in the attractions at Heligan and Par).

The Memsahib has accompanied me on many brewery tours - and it's interesting that Skinners brewery tap website has a sign for Brugse Zot - which is among her favourites.

The star in Beeston is a great pub for that.

Yes. In Derby surely there is a market for it. Not a full on sports experience like bar sport or walkabout but discreet screens and and pull down big screen for big occasions.

I think someone has already asked this, but is there a real ale pub in Derby with sky sports? I'm getting the train down to watch the game. Cheers

 

The Waterfall, sells Doom Bar, bottled ales, got sky sports, next to the train station.

How about a pint of Old Blacksmith’s Gussetsweat from Grimreaper Ales; 6% quite tangy.

* @Carl Sagan Well Carl, can it? Might one day history be something in the future or would time need to be switched to reverse for that to happen for example, could Florist be champions of Europe in 40 years’ time? What does Science tell us? 🤪

6%?

That's almost alcohol-free.
