Raise a glass to International Beer Day at the Montagu Arms.
Sample local Ringwood ales in the heart of the New Forest.
Beer lovers around the world will gather in pubs, back gardens, breweries and bars to celebrate the glories of their favourite tipple on International Beer Day this August 4.
And the Montagu Arms Hotel in the heart of the New Forest is now offering Ringwood Beer Tasting flights at the quaint and welcoming Monty’s Inn pub next door to the hotel.
Guests at the beautiful historic country house hotel in Beaulieu will be able to nip around the corner for a relaxed meal at Monty’s Inn, where they can try three different glasses of Ringwood beer alongside their delicious, traditional pub food.
With a choice of the wonderfully-named Boondoggle, Razorback, Old Thumper and Fortyniner, beer lovers can choose how they wash down their famous Monty’s burger, fish pie – or chef Robbie Maclean’s favourite Scotch egg.
The blonde Boondoggle is a deliciously fruity ale that works well with a few nuts before your meal. Old Thumper is full-flavoured with a moreish maltiness; its spicy, hoppy undertones perfect paired with beef.
One of the original 1978 brews, Fortyniner is a bitter-sweet golden ale that’s great with a barbequed sausage, and Razorback’s tempting hop aroma with fruity notes is the perfect supping beer.
The beer flight costs just £7.50.
And if you enjoy real ales and beer festivals, make a date as well for the Turfcutters Arms Summer Beer Festival in nearby East Boldre 18-20 August!
It's a lovely happy, family friendly all weekend event with fantastic live music and lots of activities for the children....
