Just when we think The Grove has done all it possibly can to corner the market in scarce and fascinating beer, it goes and pulls out yet another almighty stop that simply leaves us speechless. The announcement this week, through it's Facebook page, that draft American beer (that's craft - not mass-produced Duff) will become a permanent feature from this weekend, is fantastic news and will undoubtedly be the most impressive feather in this legendary boozer's cap to date.
Alongside the already hugely exciting line up of dedicated handpumps (that includes BrewDog, Thornbridge, Marble and Dark Star), we understand that not one, but two new pumps will be dispensing a changing range from the States. Sierra Navada's Torpedo IPA & Bigfoot will be amongst the first of an opening salvo that will also feature the magnificent Stone Ruination IPA, a true giant in it's class, weighing in at a little under 8%.
Anyone who has enjoyed sampling the wonderful hop-monsters of the San Diego region of southern California in particular, is in for a real treat right here in Huddersfield this summer. And for those who haven't - just be prepared to have your eyes, and taste buds, opened like never before!
