Drinks at THE CROOKED CROW BAR
Okay, okay, we admit, "technically" The Crooked Crow Bar is not a pub, BUT we do pride ourselves on the fantastic drinks we have on offer (as well as our fantastic events)!
On draught we have 3 great lagers:
Staropramen - a Czech belter of a premium lager, which has been brewing for 150 years. Full of flavour, 5% (but with the capacity to knock out a donkey)!
Pravha - from the makers of Staropramen, a crisp tasting pilsner lager, 4 % making it a perfect 'session' lager (until the next morning)!
Madri - Our newest addition to our range. A gorgeous, easy drinking (sometimes a bit too easy drinking) Spanish lager, 4.6%
Also on draught:
Blue Moon - A Belgian wheat beer, 5.4% with a hint of orange. Categorised as a Craft Lager (we assume, because this crafty pint will definitely sneak up on you & knock your socks off)!
Aspall Cyder - A crisp tasting cider made from 300 year old Suffolk orchards, 4.5%. (As our bar staff find sweet, syrupy ciders give them flashbacks to getting drunk in a bike shed, this tasty dry cider is definitely for the big boys & girls)!!!
We have 2 real ale pumps (usually serving Doom Bar + a guest ale), bottled beer (Hobgoblin), cider (Thatchers haze/Rekorderlig), lager
(Peroni) & alcohol free lager (Becks Blue), plus a Guinness Surger which (according to Guinness), uses the exact same Guinness as kegs, but the surger machine activates the gasses within the stout to produce the like-draught head and it means we can offer a decent pint of Guinness that has not been sat in our pipes for hours/days!!
All of our beer is supplied from a great Leighton Buzzard based company, Edward's. We have excellent wine on offer from Majestic Wine (all thoroughly road tested by the staff)!
We have the usual spirits plus a range of Whitley Neill flavoured gins, Captain Morgans, Sailor Jerry, Havana Club & Kraken rums as well as 10 flavours of Dead Mans Fingers delicious Cornish Rum, most of which feature in our fantastic Crow Cocktails.
We sell tea and our cafetiere coffees use locally roasted beans from the House of Coffee and we have a range of soft drinks available.
During seated events, drinks can be ordered via the TableDrop App. This can be accessed by hovering your phone camera over our QR codes (then clicking the pop up link to our menu) or you can download the app for free from your App Store.
