News from the Ale Mail

We have takeaway only 500ml bottles of Gyle 59 beers. All £3.00 each. Ask at the bar for details. As before, when they are gone, they are gone!
Piper’s Crisps. Without coming across as some shopping email… we have obtained a large quantity of 150g (equivalent of 5 of our 30p bags in weight) bags of Piper’s crisps. These normally sell for about £3 a bag, but we have them for just £1.20! This is better value than you can get on other brands of top end crisps in supermarkets! So you can either rip a bag open to share, or take some home. Flavours are as in the picture. Sea Salt, Cheddar & Onion, Chorizo, Cider Vinegar & Sea Salt, Sweet Chilli, Black Pepper & Sea Salt and Spicy Tomato. These are the crisps you find at the GBBF and other CAMRA festivals.
