It has been a great year for beer at The Thatchers, we started this blog for a start! Then we were crowned Colchester & North Essex CAMRA Pub of the Year 2011  securing our fourth consecutive year in the Good Beer Guide. We were also featured in Adrian Tierney-Jones’ book Great British Pubs and a got a review in the Daily Telegraph! We have held two Beer Festivals celebrating both the new wave of London breweries & new locally brewed ales.  We have also hosted two Beer & Food Matching & two Beer vs Wine & Food Matching evenings.  We are keen to make sure we keep up the pace for 2012 so have made a few New ‘Beer’ Resolutions…

1) We will continue to serve the best Real Ales we can get our hands on.  Adnams Bitter & Crouch Vale Brewers Gold will stay as permanent beers with ever changing Guests coming from outstanding microbreweries both locally and around the country.

2) We will endeavour to always offer a range of beers for everyones tastes, malty, hoppy, light, dark, just ask us for some help if you’re not sure what to go for, if it’s not a draft we might have something in a bottle…

3) We will remove Carlsberg from the bar and replace it with a monthly changing Guest Keg beer. From Brewdog Punk IPA or Calvors Dark to a Meantime, Hardknott, Black Isle or Camden Brewery beer, watch this space…

4) Our bottled beer selection has evolved to a carefully considered list of interesting and exciting beers with a great balance flavours & mix of styles. The list contains predominantly UK craft breweries.

5) We aim to use beer more in our cooking and to develop our Beer & Food matching even further.

6) I personally intend to get started on the Beer Academy courses with the eventual aim of becoming a qualified Beer Somelier, follow this blog to see how I get on…

So join us for a lazy Sunday afternoon on January 8th where we will be tasting our first Guest Keg beer Punk IPA from Brewdog, Adnams new 2.7% Sole Star and a selection from our new bottled craft beer list including some stunners from Camden Brewery.

Please book so we have an idea of numbers for nibbles.
