So yesterday evening, before heading to a barbecue, I stopped off at the Student’s Union for a quick beer, and discovered something rather delightful! Being something of a fan of both astronomy and real ale, when I saw a beer called Super Nova I really couldn’t stop myself. It’s a crisp pale ale, light and refreshing, with a fruity aftertaste. Very nice for a warm Summer evening!
Actually, I’d heard of the Black Hole Brewery before (at the Nottingham Beer Festival last year) but hadn’t managed to sample any of their ales. Based in Burton-on-Trent, the Black Hole Brewers make a selection of beers with names like Stargazer, Red Dwarf and Milky Way. Which makes my inner geek rather happy!
In the future, I’m definitely going to look out for more of these in pubs!
