The official description from their web site as follows: Unique in taste. The secret lies in the water, which is still …

Having been opened for over four years, we reckoned that Just Beer needed a little spruce up and what better time to do it than at the start of a new year? We have therefore taken advantage of the historically quiet time after the Christmas holidays to close for a couple of days and give the place a bit of a facelift. We hope you like the look we’ve created – a little airier and lighter, with bold colour and …

So the revised (and final) IPA menu is as follows: BlackJack (Manchester) – Farmhouse Red (Red IPA) 7.0% Calverley’s (Cambridge) – IPA (English …
