Welcome to The Nip and Growler Craft Ale House
Bar Red is no more. After 10 years Elise & Clare are creating a craft ale bar at 68 High Street which was the old Jessops shop, opposite M&S. All being well the bar will open later in July selling local craft ales, local ciders and local spirits to all you local people. As you may gather, LOCAL being very important.
Have a look at our Blog for more images of the progress on the bar.
Why Nip & Growler?
A Nip is a measure of beer, usually ½ a pint. Barley wine was usually bottled in nips.
Or a small drink of spirits, a 1/4 of a gill where a gill is 5 fl oz
[C18: shortened from nipperkin a vessel holding a half-pint or less]
A Growler is a larger measure of beer, a half US gallon jug or just over 3 pints in English.
