The Magnificent Seven!



THIS week The Good Beer Buzz is delighted to start with exclusive news of an exciting development at The Allanwater Brewhouse!

Tommorrow, Friday June 8, we will be launching an exciting seven beer range of bottled brews from the core cask beer selection of the Brewhouse Bar.

We are sure the news of the release of ‘The Magnificent Seven’…for sale from the Brewhouse shop or online will bring a smile to the faces of our parched patrons and so thought we would share our soon to be most wanted with you here on The Good Beer Buzz!

Leading the gang and pictured below is our very own elixir of beer-drinking life, the Gold Pot, our best-selling, oh so hoppy 70/- which has fast gained a reputation as the ultimate session beer and weighs in at a hugely drinkable 4% abv.

There is no point wasting any time over the identity of the next bad boy! Procrastination has fast gained a reputation as a real winner and at 6% abv, this double-hopped IPA will leave your whistle well and truly wetted!

Next up is a beer bursting with malty barley flavour and brewed in the traditional Scottish style, the Choc Pot. At 4.5% abv, this beer is one with a growing band of admirers within the ranks of the Brewhouse cognoscenti!

For a certain generation the term Pot Black will forever be associated with the soothing tones of ‘whispering’ Ted Lowe and the lure of the green baize but in Brewhouse parlance it means an ‘oh so smooth’ oatmeal stout that will wrap your tongue in its velvety embrace and at a modest 4.5% abv leave your senses mellowed but not mangled!

It’s time to let your taste buds travel now as we explore the virtues of the Czech Pot. A mouth-watering tasty lightly hopped Eastern European style beer that at a pleasant 4% abv, is all you could ever have…well…err…’hopped’ for!

Of course people will always search for a pot of gold and at the Brewhouse we are delighted we have our very own in the shape of a premium bitter, packed full of flavour which at a full-on 5% abv, demands to be taken seriously!

Last but by no means least we want you to save your last pound for a pint of Wee Guinea, an exceedingly flavoursome table beer style brew which at just 3.2% abv means the car keys don’t have to be left on the coffee table!

Thirsty? We thought you might be! So if you want to track down our Magnificent Seven’ then just click on the shop section.

Of course at The Brewhouse we also pride ourselves in being a great supporter of local talent and the week that was has been a particularly busy one!

First up we had our Open Mic sesh on Friday which proved a huge success and then fast forward just 24 hours and it was the turn of Brewhouse stalwarts ‘So What’, pictured below, to tread the boards.Once again their set of classic covers proved a winner with our patrons!

But we will finish this week’s Good Beer Buzz blog with more exciting news! The Allanwater Brewhouse is delighted to announce that, back by popular demand, on the weekend of June 22, 23, 24, we will be holding our 5th annual ‘Beer, Cider & Bangers Fest’!

On sale will be 16 amazing cask conditioned and craft keg beers and a selection of 6 fruit ciders including the return of our super-sexy SANGRIA CIDER.

It goes without saying that there will be live music on the Friday evening – Saturday afternoon – Saturday evening, with the human juke box himself Luke Ivans, whose picture is featured above, making sure that your pick of the pops is perfect!

While on Sunday afternoon a light acoustic session will fill you with that not so black, mellow lazy Sabbath feeling!!

To accompany all this fantastic drink and music we will have a selection of sensationally over-stuffed beer flavoured sausages from our local butcher here in Bridge of Allan, John Cullens Family butchers.

These beauties will be served in a toasted bun smothered with our secret recipe caramelised beer onions….drooling? No wonder!

And to gain entry all you have to do is turn up!

But for now, as they say on all the best cartoons…’That’s all Folks!’
