Westgate's latest micropub
Westgate's latest micropub has only been open for a few months (since November 2012) - but, in that time, they have sold over 90 different ales (93 ales as of 4th May - just 6 months from birth). The Why Not adheres in Martyn Hillier's micropub philosophy of NFL.
The Why Not are currently serving;
|PotBelly's Pigs Do Fly||A blonde ale with a hoppy aroma (yummy) (Golden Ale 4.4%)|
|Irving Brewery's Type 42||A well hopped malty bitter (Bitter 4.2%)|
|Medieval Beers's War of the Roses||Hoppy beer with a malty taste (Golden Ale 4.6%)|
|Medieval Beers's Gauntlet||Pale ale with sublime sweetness (Pale Ale 3.5%)|
And on the stillage is;
|Otley Brewery's Otley 01||(Pale Bitter 4%)|
|Goody Ales's Good Heavens||(Bitter 4.1%)|
|Goody Ales's Good Life||Fresh tasting ale, bursting with flavour (3.9%)|
The ales on offer, or pending, change on a regular basis - the above lists are only an indication.
- Some ales listed as 'on' may have been finished - the last pint could even be being poured while you're reading this!
- Sometimes an ale listed as pending (on the stillage) gets finished before the site even lists it as being on offer (sorry about that, but the locals can get rather thirsty!).
- Some ales listed as being available may not have settled and might not be available for another day.
Phone Lee on 07453 585588 if you want up-to-the-minute information of what's on.
A 'barrel' has a maximum life of about four days - but the regulars have been known to empty an entire barrel (technically not 'A Barrel' as this refers to 288 pints, but an Ale Firkin - a mere 72 pints or 9 gallons) in just a couple of hours!
To date, since birth (173 days), the Why Not has sold, or had on the stillage, over 53 different ales.
Monday - Saturday: 1200 - 1400ish
