I was able to nip in to The Malt House on Friday after work for an hour and I knew that they had the limited Carrig Coalface Black IPA on draught. It’d be rude not to give it a go. It’s pretty darn good. Very quaffable. But it’s quite mild for a beer labelled an IPA. I’d call it a dark English style ale. We even managed to persuade a stout drinker to try it and he liked it a lot!
Another beer that won’t be around for much longer is Bo Bristle’s Double IPA so that was my next tipple. It came in one of their very fetching new glasses bearing the words ‘Don’t Mess The Boar!’ Rob and Michelle being dead sound as they are even let me bring one of the glasses home for my collection. So call in to The Malt House soon and give these beers a try and sláinte!
