Californian beer on sale

Four Doncaster pubs are offering their customers the opportunity to enjoy an American cask beer which is available for the first time in the UK.

Red Nectar Ale, an award-winning beer from California, will be on sale in The Gate House in Priory Walk, The Red Lion in Market Place and The Old Angel in Cleveland Street, as well as The Old Market Hall in Market Street, Mexborough, from next Tuesday.

The gold medal winner at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival, will be on sale from £2.20 to £2.30 a pint.

Red Lion manager Emma Sayles said: “I am confident that the beer will prove very popular with the pub’s real ale enthusiasts. We are receiving only two casks, approximately 150 pints, so I expect it to sell out quickly.”
