Join us during Nottingham Craft Beer Week as we take up residency at The Lion in Basford, between Thur 22nd and Sun 25th June. Pouring no fewer than TWELVE different beers, on both cask and keg. Our very own Matt will be on hand on the Thursday to bend the ear of anyone who likes chatting beer (that’s you right?).
