Irrespective of the weather outside, in the cool, quiet interior of the Bow, beer is king. Check out the two Tweets listed above for the full beer list, and follow the Bow to find out what’s on the taps when. As ever, expect to find the best and most-up-to-date mix of thoughtful British cask ale and kegged beer.

Also on Monday, Dalry’s Appellation Wines is the place to be, as the Archerfield Ace himself, Robert ‘call me Bob’ Knops is in town. Head along for a great Meet the Brewer session, try some of Bob’s great beers, and find out how he’s faring in his multi-million pound brewery in exotic East Lothian.
