    Castle Rock Screech Owl - Available Now

    I wrote back in October about Castle Rock Screech Owl winning SIBA Beer Of The Midlands in spite of its apparently being a one off beer.

    My learned friend Mr Reluctant Scooper commented that it would become a permenant beer in the New Year. Well it appears he was right (not that I ever doubted it). I went to three Castle Rock pubs yesterday, and it was available in all three. And very good it is too. Nice and hoppy with a lovely long, almost warming body. I'm glad that it has turned out to be a beer I would recommend and that, indeed, it may be coming to a pub near you soon.

    It was rebrewed for the SIBA Champions beer festival held in Nottingham and may now be a permanent addition to the Castle Rock range

    As it is brewed in Nottinghamshire, can one find it in Derbyshire, I ask myself?

    Did you know that Ye Old Cheshire Cheese in Longnor allows dogs to partake of a drink or two?

    @Cuckoo Whereabouts are you in Derbyshire? There's a Castle Rock pub in Derby (Alex Hotel) and Chesterfield (Derby Tup) that may offer it.

    Cuckoo is this blogger's Dad and lives in France. However we are holidaying together on the Staffs/Derbys border in May. I'm going to show him a beer or two including a trip to Dronfield.

    I've always enjoyed Castle Rock ales when I've been lucky enough to come across - just wish more made it eastwards
