Fancy a swift one?
Just a quick heads up and hats off (tricky manouver!) in the direction of our beloved Hop Hideout.
The dynamic duo of Jules and Will have been hard at it this year. Fresh from their hob- nobbing and award-winning in that there London, they have organised all sorts. As previously blogged, Jules (along with Feast and Glory Clare) made a splendid success of Sheffield's inaugural Beer Week. Next HH pulled the strings to help the cool kids at Picture House Social have a blast with their first beer festival showcasing some firkin marvellous ales (check out MnM's mouthwatering review here). Best of all though, they're expanding imminently, and it's nowt to do with over-carbonated keg beers!
From tomorrow (Friday 10th April) they will be moving all the way to 448 Abbeydale Road i.e. next door to where they were previously into what was the Electric Candlelight cafe. It'll be a bigger space to showcase their tremendous ale selection the likes of which I have enjoyed immensely recently, despite still telling folk ,"I don't really drink beer at home." A big Buxton beer will be launched there too; I can't wait to meet Two Ton IPA! This one will also be simultaneously debuting at Beer Central.
Buxton's Berry Saki Bastard (10.1%) went down a storm at Beer Central's 7th Bottle Share.
Siren keep hitting the high notes too. I loved Love of Work, an easy-drinking Earl Grey 3.6%er.
And Bones of a Sailor is one of the best drinks I have ever had! PX Barrel-aged with big hits of raspberries and chocolate. I know, you need a sit down! Hopefully, Hop Hideout v2 will have a seat or two to allow a leisurely libation from the kegs they plan to have. Also longer opening hours are promised plus it is even closer to the brilliant Broadfield. Spring is definitely here!
