New manager launches new ale and menu in Crosspool pub

The Sportsman in Crosspool has teamed up with Yorkshire brewery Black Sheep to launch an exclusive new pale ale.

From Good Friday, 25 March, customers at the Crosspool pub will be able to enjoy a pint of Ember Inn Pale Ale, a 4% ABV beer with a crisp, bitter finish.

Easter also marks the launch of the new brunch menu – the latest addition by pub manager Samantha Chapman. Celebrating six months behind the bar, she has brought in a new team and relaunched the weekly quiz night.

Samantha said: “With 11 and a half years’ experience in the industry, The Sportsman posed an exciting new challenge for me to develop its reputation in the local community. I won an award for Manager of the Year in a previous role in 2014 as I helped make the pub a social hub for residents, groups and clubs in the local community – that’s something we are hoping to replicate here.”

“Introducing this exclusive ale will add to our already extensive cask ale range and is just the beginning of our plans for the pub. From our pub quizzes, to our new seasonal menus, I am hoping to build great relationships with our locals, evolving the pub to become a part of everyday life in the community.”
