Unfortunately not. We would love to see your pooch, but given how busy the venue can get it just isn’t safe from a health and safety viewpoint.
Absolutely! Complimentary bottled water as well as a selection of soft drinks will be available to purchase from beside the cider bar.
We don’t have the ability to provide this at the Briggait, however if you require a fresh glass then visit the entrance and ask to exchange your glass for a new one.
Real ale is a natural product brewed using traditional ingredients and left to mature in the cask from which it is served in the pub through a process called secondary fermentation. It is this process which makes real ale unique amongst beers and develops the wonderful tastes and aromas which processed beers can never provide.
As a natural, living product it has a limited shelf life and needs to be looked after with care in the pub cellar and kept at a certain temperature to enable it to mature and bring out its full flavours for the drinker to enjoy.
For much more detail on real ale, please visit the CAMRA ‘What is Live Beer?‘ page for definitions, statistics, and much more.
CAMRA members wishing to volunteer should use the staffing form to register their intent to volunteer.
