Tribute 4.2%vol

The South West’s favourite beer. Tribute is a huge supporter of sport in the region. It’s the official beer of South West rugby and sponsor of Somerset & Gloucestershire CCCs. Customers love Tribute, it’s light, hoppy, zesty and easy to drink. Chicken or fish dishes are especially good partners and pub classics like burgers, fish & chips and the Cornish pasty also go well.

Trelawney 3.8%vol

The unique and harmonious blend of English Golding, imported Endeavour and Galaxy hops from distant South Australia gives Trelawny a distinctive character of the old and new world. This full-bodied, malty beer is a great partner to robust flavours. A hearty sausage & mash, or a wholesome steak & kidney pie would both make superb matches.

HSD 5.0%vol

St Austell Brewery’s legendary ale. HSD is full bodied, strong and unmistakably Cornish; brimming with a kaleidoscope of flavours. Brewed with plenty of malt and lashings of English Fuggles and Golding hops, HSD is a truly classic ale of considerable depth and complexity. Named after the brewery founder, HSD stands for Hicks’ Special Draught. But this legendary Cornish ale is often known by its nickname, High Speed Diesel!

Proper Job 4.5%vol (cask)

A powerfully authentic IPA with a modern twist, Proper Job is brewed with a blend of imported hops, Cascade, Chinook and Willamette for a punch of citrus, pine resin and hint of spice for a classic IPA. Not easily overpowered by strong flavours, Proper Job refreshes and revitalises the palate, making it a wonderful partner for classic Indian curries or rich barbecues.
