draught beer here too soon,
Draught? Real draught? Inflated landlord's right arm draught?

Really?

You wouldn't tease us, would you?

You're just imagining ogling buxom barmaids having a work out. No, not hand pulled, but draught non the less.... and the Punk IPA on draught is a killer.

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

I always thought that real ale didn't travel or keep very well, hence you don't see much of it outside the shores of the UK.

Mind you it could be that most people from mainland Europe, plus myself, simply don't like drinking lukewarm dirty soapy water.

There, I've said it, I don't like real ale, and as a Brit that's tantamount to blasphemy.

Anyway good luck with your draught beer grumpy. I'm sure there are enough people around that enjoy this "speciality" of the UK to make this a flying success.

In yer dreams.....!

We have a new beer fridge so you can now see all that we have cool. And a new delivery has just arrived including 6 of the Brewdog beers. This time we ordered 10 times as much of the incredible Punk IPA so we shouldn't sell out for a couple of weeks. The draught is still set to arrive soon too.

Regular Thursday night "Pub Night" kicks off soon, see you later!

Thanks grumpy, yesterday was great. Especially since you always had my beer cool. I also had a lovely bagel breakfast.

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

The market is closing at 6 tonight but I'll be staying open later if anyone is drinking at the bar. We are closed tomorrow to celebrate Yorkshire Day and it's nice to see the rest of the market and shops around here are also celebrating with us!

We'll be holding our regular Thursday Pub Night this Friday this week and will stay open until 9 or later.

See you at the bar!

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

We have a new delivery of beer in.... the very popular (in summer) Wychwood Brewery Wychcraft Triple Hopped Blonde Ale is back as is the Brooklyn East India Pale Ale and for the first time the Brooklyn Lager and Budvar Lager..... probably the cheapest in Zurich at 5.00 CHF a 33cl bottle at the bar.

Further exploring cider options we also have some Normandy Cider, very "appley", medium sweetness and light alcohol at 4%.

If you didn't know, you can order beer and cider by the case for a 15-20% off the "to go" prices on this list. Note that pedigree, Scarecrow and Proper Job are currently out of stock.

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

A new beer delivery has just arrived and we have some new ones to try. Adnams Explorer, Ghost Ship and Lighthouse and from Brewdog, Fake Lager. We're still waiting for the pumps for Punk IPA to be on draught but we do still have Spitfire on tap.

See you soon for a cold one!

Yes, but will you be bringing your now celebrity former flatmate?

Thursdays are always a fantastic evening to come by for a beer or two.

I shall ask her. She might have plans, though. I seem to recall that Thursday is a day she's busy.

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

A massive beer delivery has just arrived, just in time for our regular Thursday night session.

The powerfully hopped St Austell Proper Job is back, as is Brewdogs 5am Saint. And after many requests, we hope that we have found an alcohol free beer worth drinking. Brewdogs Nanny State. I'll crack open a few bottles tonight for a free tasting.

See you soon!

Thanks! And thanks too to Jobsrobertsharpii for all of the Thanksgiving Pumpkin and Peacon pies too, they were fantastic!

Just a heads up, the market is also open this Sunday from 11 - 6 so the bar should be pretty busy. I don't have any Mince Pies yet, but there will be some free warm Christmas Scones with Clotted Cream on the bar during Sunday afternoon, and we should have the Hot Toddies up and running by then too. All of a sudden, it feels like Christmas is coming

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

We're holding our Christmas apero tonight at the Mousetrap, 6pm until 9pm or a bit later. Loads of free cheese nibbles, warm Christmas scones with Clotted cream and Anet, who bakes our scones, will be bringing some other baked goodies to try.

Everyone is welcome!

But if you can't make it tonight, tomorrow night Daniel Graf from Scot & Scotch is doing a whisky tasting with Scottish cheeses. He'll also be playing his bagpipes for a while, well, until the other shops complain. And yes girls, he will be wearing his kilt.

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

There a set of photos here (on FB, but public) of last weeks Christmas apero and Whisky tasting evenings... that was also combined with an office Christmas apero. We still have a few evenings available for bookings of up to 30 people over the next 2 weeks, get in touch by PM for prices and availability.

This coming Thursday will be another busy "Pub Night" too, hope to see you there, we have some seasonal Winter ales just arrived!

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

To celebrate Christmas we've got 3 seasonal beers in. The Brewdog Santa Paws is fantastic. We'll be serving until 8 tonight, all day tomorrow and from 11 - 6 on Sunday and on Christmas Eve we're open "officially" until 6, but as most years, we expect to be enjoying ourselves a bit later than that.

Cheers everyone!
