The ‘Total Package’

We love beer and have become rather partial to collaboration brews with our favourite microbreweries. Following on from the success of ‘So Solid Brew’, we’ve once again teamed up with Stuart Lascelles from East London Brewery to produce our new brew… ‘Total Package’! We’ve made 24 kegs that are exclusively available over our bar. No-one else has it.

‘Total Package’ is an American Pale Ale made from Amarillo and ‘hype-hop’ of the moment, Citra. The Amarillo has a distinct citrus flavour while the much in demand Citra (there’s a waiting list to use it) has intense hoppy characteristics. Combined they deliver a fresh, distinctive American Pale, perfect for summer drinking… Drop it like it’s hops!

Climpson & Sons Coffee

Climpson & Sons coffee has arrived at The Bull & Last and we absolutely love it! We’re using ‘The Baron’ espresso blend:

‘The emphasis is on sweetness, with a full-bodied mouthfeel and a lightly floral finish. This coffee extracts a lovely crema, inviting straight espresso lovers and milk-based drink fans alike.’

Available throughout the day and to take away, come and taste the difference.

Introducing ‘Journeyman’, Bull & Last brewed Real Ale

Tuesday 16th April shall go down in history as the day The Bull & Last connected our first self-brewed real ale to the pumps. Well, not entirely. Introducing ‘Journeyman’ , a collaboration with Cornish Crown Brewery and our first stab at making our own beer. At 5.5%, it’s a strong IPA with floral notes, made with Nelson Sauvin and American Cascade hops. Coupled with the water from a dedicated bore hole that supplies Cornish Crown, we’re rather pleased with what we’ve produced.

We would like to thank Josh Dunkley at Cornish Crown for his help bringing our ideas to life. We love beer at The Bull & Last and now, for the love of hops, invite you to come and sample ours. It’s going down a treat!
