Ricky, The Man from Bradford insisted that this was our Bier Rendezvous on Day 1 of the April 2014 Trip to Kraków. Something to do with a Football Match being shown on Sky TV. TEA Time, Traditional English Ales, had been open only Ten Days. Located on Dietla the arterial road between Stare Miasto and Kazimierz and metres from the River Vistula, this is a Prime Location. One cannot miss it, especially with the large sign on the wall above.
The Bar on street level gives access to a sitting room, with the TV in a basement room where the Brewing Plant is also housed. James the Brewer and Landlord was first met whilst watching the Football, and joined us a couple of days later on our Trip to Pracownia Browar Piwa.
Only Two Biers were available on draught our visit, though more are planned. There is a range of Bottled Bier, more on this when next Hector returns.
Pale Saint 0.5l Cask – Hand Pulled
At 4.4% not the strength of Pale Ale Hector hopes hopes for. It was assumed this Ale was Unfiltered, or maybe that was not the intention, it was also far too Sweet. . Serving the Ale Flat and Warm by authentic UK dispensing methods did it not favours. It was agreed by all that basically this Ale was on before it was ready. Next Time.
Black Prince 0.5l Cask – Hand Pulled
This is a Stout at 5.8%. Compared to the Pale Saint this was certainly much more drinkable. For a Stout it was not too Sweet and the body was Fine, belying the Strength.
Pale Rider IPA (6%) is listed on the website, looking forward to sampling this. Now where did they get this name from? Did the Kelham Island Yeast end up in Polska?
