Now this is really good...THIRD WEDNESDAY at Sambrook's

Every third Wednesday of the month we will be hosting a thrilling tasting event at Draft House Westbridge.

We kick off 21st April at 6.45pm with a FREE brewery tour of Sambrook's Brewery to see how the wonderful Wandle is actually made. Then *STOP PRESS* it's all back to Westbridge to be the first to taste Junction Ale - the stronger and darker of the two beers brewed by Sambrook's.

But this is not just any old Junction - this is a special batch which has been Oak-Barrel Aged and Dry-Hopped giving great richness and complexity.

Attendees will be the first members of the public to taste this unique and extreme interpretation of one of Draft House's best selling beers (which most likely will never go on general sale). And there'll be plenty of Wandle too. Duncan Sambrook, who is not as excitable as I am, says: "Junction Ale will be conditioned in a traditional oak cask for a week and dry hopped with Bramling X hops.  We are hoping that this process will help to enhance the maturation of the beer during the secondary fermentation to produce a uniquely flavoured take on our award winning Junction Ale."

Just to be clear - the tour is free, but the beer won't be when we get back to Westbridge - but Junction will be charged at the usual price of £1.15 per third pint so it'll be a steal, really.  Places are limited for the Tour so let us know asap at westbridge@drafthouse.co.uk.
