Lager's & Beers


Fosters    ABV 4%

Scotty's beverage of choice helps him keep his eye in on the pool table. But let's be clear: Foster's lager, as we know it in the Howff, is an Australian brand; it is not an Australian beer. "Australian for lager" it may claim to be, but 1.2bn pints of the amber nectar a year are brewed in Manchester, not Melbourne. And almost all of them are drunk in Britain, (many of them in the Howff) making Foster's UK's second best-selling standard lager.  Fosters is an easy drinking lager with a delicate balanced taste that rolls of the tongue to leave a crisp clean finish.

Kronenbourg 1664    ABV 5%

Made with selected malts and an exclusive yeast Kronenbourg 1664 is a darkish lager with golden highlights. Its aromatic hoppiness and a subtle bitterness come from lomg maturation in the cellar.  Its unique recipe is distinguished by the use of the aromatic Strisselpalt hop - known as the caviar of hops.

You may have spotted the band Madness in the recent Kronenbourg 1664 advert. Three decades after it was originally released, Suggs and the band have specially rewritten and sung a slowed down version of their legendary track ‘Baggy Trousers’ for the beer company. And now, you can download the track for free.

This is all part of Kronenbourg's 'Slow the Pace' campaign, with Madness being one of their special guests with their 'Baggy Trousers' single.
