IT’S A TRAP LAUNCH PARTY // THURS 30TH JULY

Posted by Mark in Events, Sparrow News

Later this month NORTHERN MONK BREW Co. will be launching a very special beer here at The Sparrow. “It’s a Trap”, named after Admiral Ackbar (one for the Star Wars fans), is a 7.2% New Zealand Hopped Belgian IPA which uses a La Chouffe yeast strain. The beer was the brainchild of Brian (Northern Monk), Stu (Yeastie Boys) and James Kemp (formerly Buxton & Thornbridge).

The event is free, other Northern Monk beers will be available on the night and there’ll be the usual free nibbles courtesy of our mates at Roswitha’s Deli.
