Nottingham Road Brewery

27 Aug 12

Nottingham Road BreweryNRBC started in 1996 as a small micro brew making 50lt of beer for the Rawdons Hotel (where we are based). From there the brewery gained fame and so began the journey of the four lads.

The brewery tuns were soon upgraded to 1000lt and fermentation vats added to take the capacity to 21 000lt a month. The “main” ingredient, spring water comes from an artisan well on the Rawdons Estate.We do not pasteurise our beers and filter to 2micron into PET bottles, giving the lads a very short shelf life, 8-10 weeks refrigerated.

Tiddly Toad Lager

Tiddly Toad is our lightest beer, but should never be confused with the wishy-washy “lite” brews that make real beer drinkers cringe. Our lager has a delicious fullness, and has more fine hops than a hyperactive toad. But it’s light enough to ensure that no matter how much you drink, you’ll never feel like you’ve had enough. In fact, some Tiddly Toad fans believe that regular drinking of this brew gives you more years before you croak.

Pye-Eyed Possum Pilsner

It took months of careful fermentation and maturation to bring this excellent bottle of Pye-Eyed Possum to you. So savour it. Delight in the rich, bitter flavour and the noble hop bouquet. Designed for serious beer drinkers, this pilsner is also fairly high in alcohol. Which means that, more than a few bottles might make you a bit unsteady on your feet. But don’t worry – should you find yourself unexpectedly horizontal, simply explain to your friends that you are playing Possum.

Whistling Weasel Pale Ale

Whilst imbibing Whistling Weasel Pale Ale, you may wonder just what makes it so tasty and invigorating. It’s not the finest quality hops, malt and barley. It’s not even the pure spring water that makes our Pale Ale so special No, it’s got something to do with our whistling brewer, who believes that whistling a tune while tending his brew adds a dash of joy and light-heartedness to every glass. So there you have it.

Pickled Pig Porter

Pickled Pig Porter is a full, dark beer, slightly bitter, and perfect for cold-weather (actually; all weather) drinking. It is also brewed with pure spring water and is rich in minerals. “So what?” you say. Well, that means that our delicious Porter is good for you – the more you drink, the better you feel! We believe; after extensive “research” Pickled Pig won’t give you a hangover. So you can get as picked as…. Well, as a pig, and feel fine tomorrow morning
