The Plough Round Up - 15/05/2013
Looks like it’s going to be a classic British summer! Lovely, warm and sunny one minute; cold, wet and gloomy the next, no surprises there then.
However, bank holiday weekend was fantastic, for those of you who couldn’t join us check out the shots from our beer garden. Fingers crossed for a few more of those glorious sunny days!
Plough coffee blend
Last week our Plough baristas visited ‘Has bean’, our coffee supplier to check out what’s been roasting and to make sure our espressos are the best in town. After tasting numerous samples of coffee we think we’ve almost perfected our Plough blend, we’ll keep you posted. www.hasbean.co.uk
What’s On Tap
This week we have Twisted Spire 3.6%, a light ale from Hobsons Brewery www.hobsons-brewery.co.uk and UBU 4.5%, a dark, full flavoured ale from Purity with a slightly sweet finish. www.puritybrewing.com
What’s Behind The Bar
Our whisky collection continues to grow! From Japan we welcome Nikka Pure Malt Black, made from Yochi malt. It’s well balanced and flavoured and really good to drink at any time for any reason, try one and see.
What’s on the hi-fi
Bill Withers - Lovely Day. Towards the end of the song, Withers holds a note for 18 seconds. This is believed to be the second-longest note in UK chart history, behind Morten Harket of A Ha’s 20-second note in Summer Moved On. #fact
Please tweet us anymore classics you want to hear being played over the summer.
Did You Know?
If you stacked the burger buns that we sell each week on top of each other, you could reach the height of Birmingham airport’s air traffic control tower!
Meet The Team
This week we chat to our very lovely Hattie Partington.
What’s your story then?
HP. Well I’m Hattie Jay. I’m 21 from Oxford. I moved to Brum last September… so let’s see, I’ve been here for 6 months and i’m loving it!
HP. Yes… having a smashing time (giggle)!
What’s with the giggle?
HP. Well I’m a bit clumsy and have a habit of dropping stuff. So if you here a smash behind the bar followed by a chorus of “Haaattie…” that’s because a glass has smashed, but it’s not always me… I promise.
What would you recommend from the menu?
HP. Fave thing on menu is the Plough burger, because i’m nuts about gherkins.
What is your drink of choice?
HP. Spiced rum & ginger beer because i’m spicy!!!
And last of all but not least please tell us two truths and one untruth about your good self?
- I have sung twice at the Royal Albert Hall
- I made my parents wedding cake
- I was born on the side of Mt. Vesuvius
Please tweet if you think you know the answer.
