Our Beers

The secret of good beer is a great cellarman, and the guy who looks after The Colly's cellar is a master at his craft. He knows his taps from his spiles and his shives from his pegs and often jokes you could perform surgery in his cellar because it's so 'nipping' clean!

It's due to our cellarman's vast experience, thorough preparation and his attention to detail that The Colly's beer tastes so damn good. Our current range of draught ales and lagers includes:

 

Cask Ales

Transient

Deuchars
ABV 3.8%

Distinctively radiant, deliciously refreshing! Deuchars is a naturally brilliant blend of malt and hops. A fabulous cask beer with enormous drinkability. Awards for Deuchars include CAMRA Supreme Champion Beer of Britain and World Champion Cask Ale. Discerning beer drinkers have stated it is the perfect gateway to quality cask beer.

 

Golden XPA
ABV 4.3%

An exceptional golden ale, delivering the lightness and glow of an endless summer evening, perfectly harmonising a gentle biscuity sweetness with a refreshing medium bitterness.

With a malty moreish flavour this beer has really come to the fore within the booming golden ales category.

London Pride
ABV 4.1%

London Pride is best known for its exceptional balance of malt and hops, giving rise to well-rounded flavour. It is brewed with Pale malt, plus Target, Challenger and Northdown hops.

Malty sweet, with a clean bitterness. Toffee, biscuit notes with a zesty character.

Wainwright
ABV 4.1%

Exquisitely lovely golden ale. Named after Alfred Wainwright, the renowned Lakeland author who was born in Blackburn.

Wainwright is a refreshing golden ale with subtle sweetness and delicate citrus fruity overtones. 

On Draught

Kronenburg 1664
ABV 5.0%

A lager with a noble history, characterized by its fine taste. Its golden hues and delicate bitterness come from selecting the best hops (the Strisselspalt), and the unique know-how of one of the French master brewers, for over 300 years.

 

Strongbow
ABV 4.5%

Strongbow cider is made from a blend of bitter-sweet cider and culinary apples making it a well rounded, balanced cider with a good mix of fresh apples and cidery flavours. 

Fosters
ABV 4.0%

A bright, golden refreshing lager with a crisp, clean hop finish. First brewed in Melbourne in 1888, Foster's first arrived on our shores with Paul Hogan proclaiming it tasted 'like an angel crying on your tongue', a ringing endorsement.

 

Three Hop Lager
ABV 4.5%

Golden with a white head. Aroma is a light caramel malt, nice hoppiness. Taste is a bit lagery with a light bitter, hoppy finish. Quite nice alternative to generic lager.

Murphy's
ABV 4.0%

Murphy's Irish Stout is brewed to be less heavy and less bitter than its chief competitor Guinness. Its flavour is evocative of caramel and malt and is delivered "black as strong cappuccino" with an inch of head.
