On Friday 4th April a select number of CAMRA members were invited to the Fuggle Bunny Brewhouse at Holbrook (just off the main road from Halfway tram terminus to Killamarsh) to see the brewery and try the first two beers.
We tried and enjoyed ‘New Beginnings’, a 4.9% Malty amber bitter and ‘Cotton Tail’ a 4% pale ale brewed with a mix of 5 different hop varieties.
The launch is a gradual one, the only confirmed outlets this month are Doncaster beer festival and Barrow Hill Rail Ale Festival but will start appearing in various pubs soon.
The Brewhouse concept will also see the brewery welcome casual visitors wishing to drop in for a pint and they will also host tours and functions.
Whilst there we observed brand new casks still on the pallet and wrapped stacked up, they didn’t have to be delivered very far however as the supplier is based three doors up in the same building!
