Cuckoo brewed with John Dragun at the Robin Hood Brewery from mostly East Kent Goldings hops with a few German Hallertau Hersbruker hops added it is fermented by Nottingham Ale yeast.

It will be available at the Nottingham Beer Festival October 7th to 10th in the Robin Ales Marquee and we are planning to sell bottled bitter by Christmas.

Bendigo Ales Ltd is a new Nottingham company started by four old school friends from Lady Bay. Inspired by an old label which was on display in a pub on Mansfield Road, the four want a new bitter on the market, as much to revive the use of the word bitter as to remind Nottingham of a local historical figure.
