The beer list features a wide mix of beer styles, some old favourites and some collaborations. I can highly recommend The Blue Bee/North Riding Little & Large which was on excellent form yesterday at Shakespeares' in Sheffield. Plenty of hops: mosaic, citra and sorachi ace. I'm looking forward to drinking that one again and many others, like the seldom brewed Viva Cas Vegas made by Five Towns and festival organisers Revolutions, of nearby Whitwood. I'm sure Elvis would've liked it!
