Hello all. We had some bottles of the Rocky Head Pale Ale on sale here not too long ago – they didn’t hang around for very long. Very good beers tend to sell out very quickly, you see. We are very pleased to announce then that we have a KEG of Rocky Head Pale Ale for your enjoyment. It’s just the one, so make sure you don’t miss out – we’ll be putting it on the bar this Tuesday 16th April at 6pm.
…and the very next night at 6pm, Wednesday 17th April, we’ll be putting another keg beer on the bar that is new to the Rake – Birrificio Italiano’s Extra Hop, a hoppy take on the German Pilsener style. One keg. Click here to read up on it.
So that’s Rocky Head Pale Ale on Tuesday, and Birrificio Italiano Extra Hop on Wednesday. Both at 6pm – come join us.
As promised following yesterday’s brief update on our Facebook and Twitter pages, here’s the lowdown on our Flying Dog Tap Takeover, which will be happening on Wednesday 24th April from 6pm.
We’re going for a full takeover on this one, with a Flying Dog beer on each of our beer lines. Yes, that does include handpull. We’re confident we can sidestep any technical gremlins there, so here’s a list of what we’re looking to put on for you:
(Click links for more info…)
Green Tea Imperial Stout
Single Hop Imperial IPA with El Dorado
Chipotle Dark Ale
Lucky SOB Irish Red Ale
Underdog Atlantic Lager
Snake Dog IPA
International Arms Race
…and we’ll be getting in bottles of Steadman, Wildeman IPA, Kujo Coffee Stout, Gonzo Imperial Porter, and Horn Dog. Ain’t no one gonna be going thirsty, that’s for sure.
That’s Wednesday 24th April from 6pm – come on down!
Tap East Nebula Galaxy IPA, 330ml, 7.4%
From our ‘sister’ microbrewery, Tap East…
…Nebula is an India Pale Ale that is late-hopped and dry-hopped with Galaxy, a hop hailing from Australia. This results in lots of tropical fruit flavours with aromas of passion fruit and peach and a piney, lingering hop bitterness on the palate.

Rooie Dop Chica Americana IPA, 330ml, 7.1%
In the words of the brewery…
“At Rooie Dop, we don’t really care about styles. But this is our version of an American IPA. Classic example of the style? Fits perfectly into the category? No. Does it need to be? It just needs to be pretty tasty! Chinook and Cascade hops dominate this beer and are assisted by a biscuity malty backbone. You just can’t resist a Chica Americana!”
In my words…
…it’s a hop bomb. If you like your IPAs to smack you in the face will a bag full of hops, then this is the one for you. A personal favourite of mine. So leave some for me, please…
