Downton has a hand pump for the the Downton Brewery a mile away. They rotate between 'Quadhop' and 'New Forest Ale' during the season. Downton also has a hand pump for Ringwood Brewery.

Can confirm two ales from said brewery on hand pump at Downton FC today.

I want cider, though I'd imagine that I'd have to go west for that. Best I have found is at Forest Green (GL Cider) and Berkhamsted (Thatchers Gold)

When visiting Melksham Town last month, I had several pints of Black Rat cider from the local Moles Brewery. Both 'normal' and pear.

Also, I remember Southport having their own real ale on tap...the Grandstand Gold (if memory serves me right).

I've noticed no-one has mentioned Mickleover Sports yet. They always have 2 handpumps selling real ale. Recently one of those has been Sweet 16 by the Derby brewery. It's a shame that one real ale tends to be a more well known brand, rather than a local brew, but the beers do rotate.

Since I last contributed to this thread Camberley have Alligator Ale by Ascot Ales on almost permanently. The second pump is a guest ale that changes every week or so.

I had a nice drop of Windsor Knot at Windsor FC on Saturday. Straight from the barrel. This was the best I've ever had at a non-league ground. The pretentious ***** on ratebeer.com don't rate it as highly as I do.

It appears to have a decent rating on Ratebeer. If you want a really high rating though you have to brew a 20% imperial stout that needs to be drunk with a spoon!

I didn't realise that was a high rating. It's just the language they use on there. It's the sort of stuff wine buffs come out with. This is one review - "Clear medium orange colour with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, caramel, moderate hoppy, citrus, orange - citrus, grapefruit notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, sweet orange - citrus, fruity. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat."

http://www.ratebeer.com/...sor-knot/142775/2/1/

My rating - "I like that. I'll have another please".

Long Buckby have 2 Dowbridge beers on in their clubhouse, and they were good. The next door rugby club has 3 cask beers on, but they're more of the national variety.

Resurrecting an old thread, but Penistone Church had a good choice on Saturday for the hordes from Hemsworth in fancy dress, with three handpumps serving Doom Bar, George and the Dragon (or something similar) from Wadworth and the local Stancill Blonde, from Sheffield, which was well kept and good value at 2.65.

Re: [Sale Holmfield] Local Ales at Grounds [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Was thinking about looking for this thread myself:

Lepton Highlanders (West Riding County Amateur) have 2 changing beers on, Copper dragon Golden Pippin and Black Sheep best Bitter last night.

Bashley only had Doom Bar in bottles last Saturday, handpump not in use these days it seems

FC United have 2 or sometimes 3 cask ales on, one by Ninety-Ninety Brewing under the terrace (the brewer is there to serve you / discuss it!) at the end of the bar. In the main bar at the top of the seating stand there's a cask beer on each end of the bar, Holts and a FC special beer, the brewery for which has switched between local brewers but is currently made Holts.

At Tring Athletic we are only open usually open on matchdays, but stock bottles from the excellent Tring Brewery who are less than a mile from the ground.

Usually a choice of at least 2 or 3 of Colley's Dog, Side Pocket for a Toad, Jack O'Legs or for the brave Death or Glory at 7.2%.


About half a dozen different ales in bottle available in the well-run Tring Athletic FC clubhouse yesterday, from the excellent local Tring Brewery.

Re: [oxpete] Local Ales at Grounds [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Hope I'm not repeating a post here. I remember seeing (and tasting!) some excellent ales at Prescot Cables, think they were essentially home brews sold from behind the bar. Very nice, not been to Cables for a time so can't say if they're still sold.



I count as a groundhop whatever I feel appropriate.

Reserves? Yes, why not?
Friendlies? No problem.
Bracketed ticks? Come on in, I say.

They also do an excellent festival every year, with around 30 choices. Well worth saving an excellent ground until then if you can

Not NL. But Palace usually have one on from Sambrooks Brewery. And Reading have 'Good Old Boy' from the West Berkshire Brewery.
I don't know whether either are served in the away sections though, probably not.
But being league grounds, elf and safety, of course, served in plastic glassesCrazy.
