We are excited to announce that our exclusive ale, prepared by local Cheviot Brewery is now available on draught in the pub! After the successful launch on Friday 22 March, our visitors, as well as locals will have an opportunity to enjoy a fresh, truly local ale, brewed only 5 minutes from the pub!
Mattia Marras, the General Manager of the Black Bull pub introduced the idea of the unique Black Bull beer to the Cheviot brewery owners around February, and since then they have all been working collaboratively to create something special for the customers of the Black Bull. Mattia, with his personal passion for the craft beer and long years of studying and discovering new flavours of malts and hops, supported Cheviot owners in the development of the Black bull ale. We are certain that this initiative will show our commitment to the local community and strengthen the relationship between locals and the businesses on the estate.
Mattia states "since reopening we have decided to focus on local products as much as possible and we are delighted that Cheviot Brewery has agreed to partner with us. The Black Bull Pale Ale has been developed over months of testing and is assured to be flying off the pump"
Jonathan from Cheviot Brewery is also delighted with the initiative:
"Since July 2018, when we produced our first brews, the support we have had from the people and businesses around the Ford & Etal estate has been fantastic. The Black Bull at Etal has been no exception, serving our ale since day one. It has been great to develop an exclusive ale with The Black Bull for their customers to enjoy alongside our regular beers.
Black Bull EtAle is a Triple hopped dark bitter predominantly featuring the popular Fuggle hop to balance the rich blend of crystal malts and we hope becomes a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike."
