Derbyshire Craft Beer Review: Wild Holly from Thornbridge

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Derbyshire craft beer review is for  Wild Holly from Thornbridge.

Share It!

Wild Holly was a dark red. Malty, coffee, boozy, almond, fruity red current, and somehow, don't ask me how, Stilton.

This our first festive beer of December. They are easier to find in the city where the turn over is higher. The landlord at our local usually doesn't come out with the Christmas beers until January!

A very pleasant beer indeed.

We've found a decent after work craft beer haunt in The City: The Lord Aberconway across from Liverpool Street station. They have six pumps and a few interesting things on tap. They know how to take care of their beer there and if you get there at the right time it isn't too busy to find a seat and chill out.
