Brirra Moretti +

4.6%abv. Birra Moretti was an Italian brewing company, founded in Udine in 1859 by Luigi Moretti.

To produce Birra Moretti, only the highest quality raw materials are used and a particular mixture of valuable hops give the beer its unique aroma, intensifying the pleasant slight bitter flavour.

Amstel +

4.1% ABV, In 1870, Charles de Pesters & Johannes van Marwijk Kooij felt that the bier available to the people of Amsterdam simply was not good enough.

They looked to the Bavarian pilsner brew techniques to create a bier with more depth and flavour – one that would surpass the thin, top fermented beers of the day.

Meantime Yakima Red +

Meantime Yakima Red is brewed with British and German malts to give a deep ruby colour and medium to full body. The addition of five varieties of US hop from the Yakima Valley in Washington State imparts spectacular fruit and citrus flavours with a restrained bitterness. Yakima Red is 4.1% ABV and delivers all the flavour and character you come to expect from Meantime's variety of craft beer styles.

Guinness +

Ireland. 4.1%abv. Guinness stout is made from water, barley, roast malt extract, hops, and brewer's yeast. A portion of the barley is roasted to give <em>Guinness</em> its dark colour and characteristic taste. It is pasteurised and filtered.

Westons Stowford Press +

UK. 4.5%. Stowford Press combines century-old traditions with a flavour designed to appeal to more modern tastes. Stowford Press began its life as one of the traditional cider blends called ‘Vat 53’.

World Beers

@ The White Cross we pride ourselves on having some of the best craft beer on offer from near and far

These include but are not limited to: The Wild Beer co, Brewdog, mallinsons, Einstok and Timmermans.

Plus a rotating selection of others…depends on when you visit!

We believe in serving only the best in local produce and J.Atkinson’s and co reflect this.

The company was handed down from husband to wife to son, to son-in-law, to his son and then to a daughter over five generations until the Atkinson line was exhausted. There must’ve been something in the air besides the aroma of roasting the day that they returned to China St. with a career epiphany into coffee looming just around the corner.

Importing only the finest coffee beans from around the world and by finest we mean Fair Trade. Hence the reason we are proud to serve their products.
