THE WORLD CUP AT THE SPARROW

Posted by Mark in Sparrow News

That’s right, we have installed a small but perfectly formed television in the basement especially for the World Cup. Now you can enjoy great beer while you are watching the beautiful game. Drink Bavarian Weiss beers while watching Germany, Lambics when watching Belgium and good old pale ale when cheering on England!!! Lets hope that England’s form is as good as the beer.

Two of our favourite local breweries have come together to create a one off Smoked Porter.

Inspired by the old industrial smokestacks of the North, the second beer to be released from the Northern Monk Brew Co Northern Alliance series is a smoked porter brewed in collaboration with Saltaire Brewery. This dark smokey beer takes its unique flavour from specialty beachwood smoked malts.

Join us for the launch of this unique collaboration which will be available in cask, keg & bottle. Food will be available from the first Northern Monk Refectory kitchen pop-up.
