Tapping It Around Town: Verde, Shirley

As well as being able to shout about our own beer, we also love telling you all about the local places we get to work with and that serve our beers to all the happy punters. As a new feature, we will be featuring a venue on the blog every two weeks and giving you the low down on everything from the drinks and food to decor and atmosphere. 

We are starting with a brand new bar and eatery in Shirley, one of many new places to open on the high street over the last couple of years. Verde boasts a menu that serves both vegan, and non-vegan food, to support a new wave of eating as well as not excluding anyone with different choices. The chilled out vibe is matched by the large decking and seating area around the front of the venue, with large sliding doors opening up the whole place in the sunny weather.

We tested out the food too, and the vegan and non-vegan sides of the menu run in conjunction with each other so neither feels like they’re missing out. One of us went for the Pots Of Paradise (£7.95) with pulled chicken korma and rice, and the chicken was so delicious it melted in your mouth. The other was the vegan option, sporting Squash & Sweet Potato Kickin’ Korma finished with seasonal vegetables & rice (£7.95). Both were full of flavour and came out hot.

As well as supporting Tap It and serving a few of our beers on tap, they also have a cocktail selection and wines to choose from, as well as all the usual soft drinks you know and love. Even though summer is coming to an end, the venue will still be in full swing, with live music events from local artists and the venue being for hire to private events too.

Tell us what you think if you’ve had a chance to go down and try it. If not, what are you waiting for!

We’ll see you at the bar.


Our beer

Brewed with attitude

At Our Local Southampton Brewery

We brew the kind of craft beer we love because we know you’ll love it too.

To brew we only ever use the finest malt, hops and yeast to ensure our beers give you the highest standards of quality, freshness, consistency and drinkability.

Ultimately, it’s all about the flavour and the aroma – the proof is in the taste.

At our microbrewery in Southampton, we brew with attitude and from the heart. All you need is your senses, some curiosity and be ready to have your taste buds turned on.

Released Spring 2017
