It’s arrived!

Green Man IPA (5.7%) brewed with locally grown hops!

Back in February we had the idea of members planting hops across S18 in the unlikely event of a first year crop. Well, 30 took up the challenge and with varying degrees of success we got enough to green hop an IPA.

It’s now on at the Three Tuns and shortly at the Coach and Horses, The Dronfield Arms, The Pebley, Kelham Island Tavern, The Ale house (Chesterfield) and the Miners at Hundall.

Lauren at the Miner’s and her gardener got the best yield and got to name the beer.

Try the Green Man IPA – It’s delicious. A one of brew until next year…..

Try it before it goes! Cheers
