Jamaica Inn has proved a popular attraction at The London Tattoo Convention over the years, providing a varied and interesting selection of fine Ales and tasty Ciders. It seems every year the selection grows, catering for the explosion in Craft Beer and Ciders.
This Year in conjunction with The Beer Collective, we are showcasing a fine range of Cask Conditioned Real Ales, chilled and Hand Pump delivered alongside the very best of new and innovative Key Keg from a collective of respected Micro-Breweries.
Catering for every taste, from Dark and Traditional to Hoppy and Zesty via Exciting New World inspired creations, we aim to please.
Dark Star Revelation
A blend of Warrior, Cascade, Columbus, Crystal and Chinook by the sack full ñ then dry hopped during conditioning using our ëHoptimizerí (Industrial sized hookah).
We decided to make this beer based on our 2 successful ginger infused ales. This full bodied copper coloured beer displays a delicate blend of cloves, coriander and heaps of fiery ginger. You will find a generous depth of flavour which reveals more with every sip.
Crouch Vale Amarillo
A superb premium golden ale with wonderful aromas of Amarillo hops and a lasting spicy and orangy flavour. Cara malt provides a little burnished colour, but the light body belies its strength. Dangerously drinkable!

A hint of initial sweetness adds to the fruitiness and grapefruit tang of this summer ale without detracting from its clean flavour and rich hop aroma.
Dark Star APA
The yeast strain used for the brewing of this American style pale ale is specially imported from the USA, along with Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops. The low colour Maris Otter malt provides a perfect light colour and dryness to complement the crisp taste and full aroma of the hops. SERIOUSLY FULL OF HOPS

Northern Monk Monacus NZ
Monacus is brewed with 100% 2014 harvest New Zealand hops - Waimea, Rakau and Motueka - which add a resinous soft fruit character, with Peach and Passion Fruit to the fore.
The beer that began a revolution.
Our scene-stealing flagship is an India Pale Ale that has become a byword for craft beer rebellion; synonymous with the insurgency against mass-produced, lowest common denominator beer. Punk IPA charges the barricades to fly its colours from the ramparts ñ full-on, full-flavour; at full-throttle.
Layered with new world hops to create an explosion of tropical fruit and an all-out riot of grapefruit, pineapple and lychee before a spiky bitter finish, this is transatlantic fusion running at the fences of lost empires.
Nothing will ever be the same again.
Hop Fiction Pale Ale
Hop Fiction is an explosively tropical US-style Pale Ale. Weíve rolled up our hop-dusted sleeves and put some advanced brewing techniques to work in our latest seasonal brew.
Devoid of kettle additions, Hop Fictionís incredible aromas and flavours are down to a combination of early and late hops - bags of soft, rounded citrus and stone fruit layer up on a dry light biscuit backbone.
Five AM Red Ale
Five AM is clarity condensed into a single moment. Everything laid out before you is static, but nothing is set. The road runs straight into the shimmering distance.
Itís time to take that ride.
Out of this order and stability comes the rush of the pack. Berry and caramel riding alongside marmalade and chocolate. Spice and toast jostle with lychee and biscuit.
The needle flicks to all points of the compass. It drives you towards the horizon, towards the vanishing point. And it keeps going
Dead Pony Club
Paying hop-flecked homage to the glory of the Pacific Coast, Dead Pony Club has been crafted from an insane amount of US hops, delivering massive citrus aromas of lemongrass and lime zest.
Dead Pony is the invigorating surf that pounds the iridescent shoreline yards from the salt-encrusted asphalt of Route 1. The hop-heavy west-coast wonderland awaits.
Dive in and the toasted malt base soon yields to a huge box-fresh hop hit, washing tropical fruit, floral garlands and spicy undertones all over your palate.
Inspired by US-Style pale ales, Dead Pony is a low amplitude, high voltage hop hit; California dreaming for the craft beer generation.
