Always a pale, hoppy beer brewed to between 3.8% and 4.5%. Our most popular guest line, you can routinely find a beer from Kelham Island (Sheffield), Daleside (Harrogate), Abbeydale (Sheffield), Phoenix (Heywood) and Bradfield (Sheffield) to name but a few.
Resident – Horbury Ales. Brewed by us on site this has quickly become our most popular line. We’re currently rotating our brews on this line (Now Then, What Now, First Light & New Dawn to name but a few) but, rest assured, each one will be pale and hoppy (some more than others!)….which one do you prefer?
As an ‘Oakademy’ outlet, Brewers Pride dedicate this line to Oakham Ales from Peterborough. Beers appearing on this line will be beers from their core range, JHB, Inferno, Citra, Scarlet Macaw and Bishop’s Farewell, as well as seasonal specials.
Dedicated to a low gravity ‘session’ ale, with a gravity of no more than 4%. Beers from Elland (Elland!), Leeds (Leeds!) And York (York!) Appear on this line regularly together with guest beers from further afield.
Often regarded as a ‘test bed’ for Line 1, you’ll find lots of new beers from microbreweries around the country plus some particular favourites of ours such as Whim Ales – Hartington IPA and Moorhouses – Blond Witch that are slightly too strong for Line 1 but just too good to miss!
Some real favourites on this line – strong (> 5.0%), pale and hoppy with regular appearances such as our own Horbury Ales Sundown (brewed on site), Hopback Summer Lightning (Salisbury), Kelham Island Pale Rider (Sheffield) and Abbeydale Absolution (Sheffield).
On this line you will find a more traditional type of beer; more chestnut in colour and, generally, more malty in flavour. Gravity ranges from 3.8% up to 5.1%. Regular breweries appearing on this line are Moorhouses (Pendle, Lancashire), Hambleton Ales (North Yorkshire), Leeds Brewery (West Yorkshire), Elland Brewery (West Yorkshire), Marston Moor & Rudgate (Tockwith, York) and many more.
Resident – Rudgate Ruby Mild 4.4% – Champion Beer of Britain 2009 (we always knew it was good, which is why it has been resident since 2006!). Slightly stronger than your average mild but don’t let that put you off unless, of course, you’re driving!
Always a dark one; Stout or Porter, which could realistically be anything strength wise, from 4.2% up to 5.5%. You can expect these beers to be quite bitter but they can often have fruit flavours, liquorice or even a hint of chocolate!
