flying-monk-696x522Our Brewer of the Month for June is The Flying Monk Brewery based in Malmesbury.

An interesting piece of trivia for you: Apparently early in the 1100 Century, a monk called Elmer, after observing the Jackdaws soaring on the breeze around the Abbey towers, thought man could possibly fly. Elmer constructed wings and launched himself from the top of Malmesbury Abbey managing about 200 yards!

That’s a little aside and doesn’t have anything to do with beer, unless Elmer had been drinking some of course! This great micro brewery brews some fantastic beers and we’re looking forward to trying beers such as Birdman Bitter, Habit and Pioneer.

Our featured ale for just £3 all month is Elmers. This 3.8% pale bitter (a great summer ale) is brewed with Maris Otter Malt hopped with East Kent Goldings and Nelson Sauvignon.

If you haven’t tried a pint of Flying Monk before, now’s your chance!
