Big Hand Atramentus cask stout - ace tonight. Bogs still a disgrace. On balance then, worth a visit caskateers.

Good selection, have they not bound and tied you to their own beers then?

The Big Hand beers have been terrific so far, what an excellent micro!
The forthcoming list looks very interesting. Tried the Jaipur at the Cross Keys last night, not impressed, hope you do a better job Johnny!

It'll be interesting to sample the Jaipur. The last three times I've tried it (Philharmonic - Liverpool, Borough Arms - Crewe and most recently Cross Keys - Chesterville), it's been grim. Not sure if the quality of the beer has changed or it's simply not been kept well at these three locations.

Put a post on here when it's on Johnny.

Jaipur IPA would have been one of my Desert Island Beers a few years ago. Maybe I've just been unlucky recently but i agree with Tarquel that the quality seems to have deteriorated alarmingly.

jonny that's 8 beers you only got four/five pumps, hows that going to work then? Thought you only allowed one guest. Have enterprise relaxed their rules?

Will be interesting to try the Jaipur. The classic has been coming in for some stick lately. The said IPA was quite acceptable at the Cross Keys last Saturday - put it this way, I've had far worse. The plethora of IPA's about atm seems to be shifting the Thornbridge tipple into the shadows a tad.

Hiya all, we have been going through a fair few cask which is good! The cask is on rotation. When one goes then I will put a different cask on. The selection from the brewery is quite good at the mo. The list is the ones that will be available from Friday pm and the following days. Pls note no Wye valley HPA was delivered with the dray so can strike that off the list.

Big Hand beers, especially Atramentus & Melyn continue to be on good form. Keep up the good work Jonny.

Thanks for the sneak preview of the Jaips* tonight Jonny - tasted good to me. Looking forward to it flowing freely.
