Craft Beers new to Bunkers Hill
Although we've been selling craft beers for over two years, we've watched and waited as the market for these qwirky lagers grows and develops. We also opted for more niche draught ciders, as cider drinkers become more informed and knowledgable about cider Strongbow just doesn't cut the mustard.
We've sourced FOUR brand new craft beers from some of London's top brewers. We have Frontier Craft Lager, a 4.5% clean, refreshing lager, brewed with new world hops by Fullers of Chiswick in London. Another popular craft brewer in the big smoke is Meantime Brewing Company, and we will be going through their cast range of beers on a rotating fount. The third pump is dedictaed to Suffollk outfit Adnams who are producing complex and rounded beers, all of which are real connoisseurs' session beers. The fourth pump is to showcase brewers from all over the country and beyond, the furthest we've sourced a beer is California, Lagunitas is dispensed on our bar three weeks from leaving the USA.
Discounts for Panthers fans
Being situated next door to the Capital FM Arena we are swamped by Nottingham Panthers ice hockey fans every match day. Couple that with the fact our manager, Nicky, is a devoted Panthers fan himself we inevitably became a bit of an unofficial hockey pub. These discounts will all be available for the upcoming 10th Elite League Play-Off Finals weekend which take place on the weekend of Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th April 2013 and is the highlight of the UK ice hockey calendar.
Every home game we now offer a plethora of disocunts valid only for those with a valid match day ticket. Simply present your ticket at the bar when ordering your beers and you'll be entitled to 15p off a pint. If beer and cider ain't your thinkg then look out for a string of other offers such as VK Flavours 3 for £5 or Smirnoff and Red Bull only £3.15 [plus more].
