Real Ale & cider

Thanks to a special arrangement between Kelburn Brewery and the Crowne Plaza, we will have our very own mini-beer festival at Satellite 4, with a truly stunning range of ales and ciders on offer over the weekend!

There will be two or three real ales on tap throughout the weekend. In addition the brewery will supply smaller quantities of a number of their other beers at different times. Each will be available for a limited period only. Although the list isn't finalised, we expect it to include such popular favourites as:

Goldihops 3.8%
Pivo Estivo 3.9%
Red Smiddy 4.5%
Dark Moor 4.5%
Cart Noir 4.8%

...and more besides. So be sure to watch out for them!

We are also delighted to introduce:

Oook Ale 4.5%
A limited edition ale produced by Kelburn exclusively for Satellite 4. This is an intriguing dark ale, with an easy-going banana finish, inspired by Discworld's most famous Librarian (and named with Sir Terry's permission).

Kelburn Brewery has also sourced more than a dozen different ciders for members to try, covering the full range from sweet to dry. Again the list isn't finalised, but is likely to include:

Gwatkin Perry - dry
Westcroft Janet's Jungle Juice - medium/dry
Gwatkin Yarlington Mill - medium
Bollhayes - medium
Rich's Legbender - sweet

Best of all, the brewery will be on standby to monitor consumption over the weekend and supply additional casks of real ale should we be in danger of consuming all the stock at the hotel.


Please note that Satellite 4 encourages responsible drinking.
