    just noticed this place on cleveland road after i left the gym so popped in.

    Lad behind counter reckons hes going to try and create a "Rehills" type of place and is awaiting a bloke from york to start supplying him. He is open to ideas of what people would like so ive hoyed my two penneth in, mainly IPA's obviously but for those who like their ales get yourself in as he says he will get whatever you want.

    Anyway the Jakehead and Hickey The Rake are mine lads!

    Wish him all the best but I'm not paying £4 for a bottle of beer to drink at home.

    If the prices aren't cheaper than B&M's then they'll not be getting my trade. They got a website?

    Aye, they're going to have to gan canny. Saying that, it's a good location for anyone passing on the way home from the pub I suppose.

    The road that splits the ABC streets up High Barnes. Can only think he's taken over the florist, the barbers, the bakers, or the newsagents over the main road.
     
  8. Sounds class. I'd definitely be interested in stuff other than the boring shite the supermarkets and places like b & m get in. Interesting to see how many others would though. I get the impression quantity rather than quality might do better for many on here.

    Because something is brewed by in a small batch by an independent brewery does that make it better beer?

    All the super markets get loads decent stuff in now.

    They do aye, but it seems to be the same stuff. I like getting pissed on a range of delectable delights, like Bucket's Golden Stew, and Tangiers Fanny Buckler.

    Unless you've got a really sensitive palate then there ain't much of a difference in taste between many of the ales in my opinion, and once you've had a few they all start blending into one.

    The joy is in the journey, not the inevitable destination. :lol:

    It's on the corner of Cleveland Rd and Chatsworth St. It's not exactly a main road so is only going to survive by word of mouth.

    No, IPAs were in about 6 year ago. Lowest common denominator shite.

    Has this place taken over the hairdressers or the newsagents? Can't find it on Facebook either...
