The Fan Bar

There is no getting around it, standard Hilton Hotel bars can be expensive and not that exciting. To counter this we have the Fan Bar that will be serving the standard bar products, but at a 10% discount making it a little bit cheaper. But also to make it a little more interesting, the Hotel will be serving a range of real ales from the Purity brewery and a still cider from Henney's in the Hotel Lobby. The real ales and cider that will be on sale from Thursday are:

Pure Gold
(3.8% ABV,  IBU 42) - is a refreshing golden ale with a dry and bitter finish. Brewed with English Maris Otter, Caragold, Caramalt and Wheat malts, plus Pilgrim, Styrian and Hereford Goldings, Styrian Bobek and Citra hops. Winner of nine awards.

Pure UBU
(4.5% ABV, IBU36) - is a distinctive, full flavoured beer with a sweeter finish. Brewed with English Maris Otter, Crystal, and Wheat malts, with Pilgrim and Cascade hops. Winner of seven awards.

Mad Goose (4.2% ABV, IBU48) - is a zesty pale ale with a smooth and citrusy finish. Brewed with English Maris Otter, Caragold and Wheat malts, with Pilgrim bittering hops and Cascade and Willamette aroma hops. Winner of five awards.

Bunny Hop (3.5% ABV, IBU 55) - is an extra hopped pale ale brewed with Maris Otter, Lager Malt, Cara Pils and Wheat Malts. Then generously hopped with Pilgrim, Eureka, El Dorado and Chinook. It is a bold beer, which perfectly balances its low abv of 3.5%, pale malts and powerful hops.

Henney's Vintage Still Cider (6.5% vol) - is made from a single year pressing and is naturally still. Appley and Intense with a real depth of flavour it tastes of late summer with notes of apricot, herbs and apply crumb.
