Enjoy a session of delicious cask ale
A NEW pub in the heart of Knutsford has announced when it will be opening by unveiling a special ale with a huge help from a Longridge-based brewery.
With the opening of The Old Sessions House, the former Red Cow, confirmed as Monday, September 10, restaurateurs Paul Newman and David Mooney celebrated their affiliation with Gregg Sawyer of Knutsford-based Tatton Brewery by getting their hands on Sessions cask ale.
Located on Princess Street, the Old Sessions House Pub and Kitchen will be the second venue for the New Moon Pub Co, the firm run by the pair.
Townsfolk will have noticed in recent weeks that the pub has had a makeover on the outside as well with a new lick of paint.
According to the company the new pub will pride itself on buying from local producers for the majority of its culinary ingredients and their specially-commissioned cask ale is no different.
With a renowned family-run business, the Tatton Brewery, based in Longridge, Paul and David decided to commission some real Cheshire cask ale to take pride of place behind the bar at the new venue.
David said: “Tatton Brewery has a well-deserved reputation for draught and bottled beer, and we’re delighted to be working with Gregg and the team.
“We can’t wait to get our laughing gear round the Sessions Ale.”
Gregg Sawyer, owner and head brewer of Tatton Brewery, added: “We use an historical local yeast to brew traditional and contemporary beers in a modern brewery, so the Sessions Ale will be a perfect fit for Dave and Paul’s style.
“It’s great to be working with the New Moon Pub Company team, and everyone in Knutsford is really looking forward to the opening of the Old Sessions House.”
If you’d like to taste the specially-commissioned Sessions Ale for yourself, it will be on draught at the Old Sessions House from the opening day, September 10.
