A beer that was originally going to be called the Clock Tower, until in the week it went into tank the brewers at Holgate noticed that True South was releasing an IPA with the same name. So back to the drawing board it was and up came the Bruges Bombshell. Why? Well, because it's a bolshy Belgian style ale and Bruges is in Belgium, where head brewer Paul Holgate had just been on holiday and... you get the message. So what of the beer? Well, we're told it's "full flavoured but easy drinking with an emphasis on the biscuit malt flavour accented with sweetness from Belgian candi sugar and the fruity esters from the Abbey ale yeast used". So there you go.
