News & Events FLYING HORSE TO SERVE BEER ONCE MORE AFTER 30 YEARS SOBER
BEER, ale and cider are back on the menu at a former Nottingham pub following the opening of Brew Cavern in The Flying Horse Walk.Over the last 400 years, the city centre site has been home to the Flying Horse Inn as well as five other pubs, including the Punch Bowl Vaults dating back to 1758.
Now, after 30 years ‘dry’ following the conversion of the inn into a shopping arcade, beer is once again on offer to the general public – unlike its predecessor though, you won’t find beer on tap, but bottled craft beers, ales and ciders which have been lovingly brewed from across the UK and further afield.
Matthew Hinton, owner of Brew Cavern, said: “It’s great to have opened, and so far we’ve had a really positive reception from our customers here in Nottingham.
“I discovered a real passion for beer whilst living in Sheffield; they have a couple of craft beer shops and I when I moved to Nottingham I noticed that there wasn’t really anything like that in the city centre and noted a gap in the market.
“The beers, ales and ciders we have on offer here are all made to a high standard and each one is individual – we have a wide range to suit all from a vegan friendly beer, flavoured beer and beer that has been brewed to aid wildlife conservation.”
Brew Cavern stock a range from breweries across the UK and Europe – ‘From The Notebook’ designs blends in Nottingham that are then made created at a Worksop brewery. Other stock includes popular London brewery The Kernel and Bevog a German style beer that has been brewed in Austria
Craft beer and ales have seen a substantial increase in popularity during recent years and Nottingham is no stranger to this growing trend as can be demonstrated by the popularity of this month’s Nottingham CAMRA beer festival.
Simon Blair of London and County which owns the Flying Horse Walk said: “We are delighted to welcome the Brew Cavern to the mall. It is a great new independent business which is not only a great addition to the niche shopping centre, but to Nottingham as well.”
Ben Tebbut from FHP, who let the unit on behalf of London and County, said: “The Flying Horse Walk is home to a number of independent stores, each one offering something unique and of value to the Nottingham consumer market – Brew Cavern is no exception to this and we hope to see it go from strength to strength.”
Brew Cavern is an independently owned shop selling brewed craft beer, real ale and bottled cider.
