Last month we visited Budweiser Budvar Brewery in the city of České Budějovice, Czech Republic, with our colleagues from Lancaster Brewery. This month we've added one of their best beers to our range on the bar - Budweiser Budvar B:Kräusened (4.0%) is a naturally hazy Czech lager and we love it. Kräusened lager (pronounced Kroy-Zened) is everything you’d expect from a golden lager with a fuller and crisper feel. Krausening is the time honoured way brewing bohemians would finish their beers. It is unfiltered, unpasteurised and matured in the cellars we saw on our trip. Freshly fermenting Budweiser Budvar original is then added to kick start a second fermentation before it goes into kegs. In doing so the beer continues to ferment adding a softer, natural carbonation and finishing drier and cleaner as the fresh yeast works its magic in the beer. Come and try it at The Sun Hotel & Bar! 🍻
We've got two fab beers on just in time for Lancaster Music Festival this weekend at The Sun Hotel & Bar 🍻 First up is festival sponsor VELTINS - a lager famous for its clean and crisp quality and delicious flavour, thanks no doubt to being brewed using natural spring water from its own mountain! And making a return to the bar by popular request after a couple months away is 13 Guns American IPA, which offers an intense hit of hops and a salute to the original 13 states of America. Here's our line-up for Lancaster Music Festival... *** Thursday 20.00 - 22.00 Alex Hulme (Singer Songwriter) From: Lancaster *** Friday 15.00 - 17.00 Chris Price (Singer Songwriter) From: Morecambe 17.30 - 19.30 Jack and Tanya (Folk/Blues) From: Lancaster 20.00 - 22.00 Billy Jo The Canadian (Blues) From: Manitoba *** Sunday 13.00 - 15.00 Glynn Shipman (Singer Songwriter) From: Preston 16.00 - 18.00 Billy Jo The Canadian (Blues) From: Manitoba *** Come and join us at The Sun Hotel & Bar this weekend! 🍻
We didn’t have to go too far afield for our Gin of the Week this time - Hunters Gin is a single batch distilled, London Dry Gin that includes a unique blend of citrus botanicals and apples sourced from the company founder’s own orchard and the Norton Priory Gardens in the heart of Cheshire. This spirit is based on a 300-year-old secret recipe and is produced by re-distilling neutral spirit with natural botanicals such as juniper berries, citrus peel and coriander seeds, all heated in a still. As the alcohol vapour is driven off, the flavours and aromas are released into the spirit vapour giving Hunters Cheshire Gin its unique, special flavour. We recommend mixing Hunters Cheshire Gin with elderflower tonic water by Bottlegreen Drinks. Come and join us for a taste this week at The Sun Hotel & Bar ❤️🍸 #ginoftheweek #lettheweekendbegin #ginandtonic #gin #gandt
We’ve got a truly delicious traditional cider on the bar now from our friends at Ross Cider Farm. It packs a fair punch at 5.2% and is named in honour of the farm’s dog, who barks and scares away all the birds in the orchards!
It's Cask Ale Week until 1 October and we're helping celebrate Britain's national drink with some fab specials to go with your favourite ale. 🍴🍻
Our Gin of the Week is one we’ve had our eye on for a while. ❤️🍸🇫🇷 Combining the heritage of the Charente region, the avant-garde attitude of Paris, and the effortless chic of the south-west, G'Vine Gin Floraison aims to embody the creativity and joie de vivre of modern day France. We recommend G’Vine Gin de France Floraison with Fever-Tree Original or Bottlegreen Drinks Elderflower Tonic & Fresh Grapes.
So many beers, so little time... We've got some absolute beauties in the cellar at The Sun Hotel & Bar waiting to surface in the coming days. How many do you recognise? Pop in soon to try them - once these guests are gone, they're gone 🍻👀
There's a new Gin of the Week at The Sun Hotel & Bar - and it's a special one. Monkey 47 - Schwarzwald Dry Gin is from the Black Forest in Germany and contains delicious cranberries. The 47 comes from the number of botanicals that go into this unique gin, and the fact it's bottled at a healthy 47%. Monkey 47 has won the World Spirits Award Gold in the Gin category and Gold for best in class for the Gin Worldwide at the International Wine and Spirits Competition London. We recommend with 1724 Tonic Water and a wedge of fresh orange. 🍊 It's good stuff. If you like gin you should try it! ❤️🍸 #lettheweekendbegin #ginandtonic #gin #gandt
