Sharps Brewery – Doom Bar

Doom Bar is inspired by its namesake, the treacherous sandbank at the mouth of the Camel Estuary near Sharps’ home at Rock. Accomplished and precise, Doom Bar is the epitomy of consistency, balance and moreish appeal and is now the UK’s no.1 selling cask beer.

An enticing aroma of resinous hop, sweet malt and delicate roasted notes. The mouth feel is a balanced, complex blend of succulent dried fruit, lightly roasted malt and a subtle yet assertive bitterness. The finish is dry and refreshing.

Note that the bottled version is not actually brewed in Rock

  1. Doom Bar has a come a long way – literally. Hailing from a tiny coastal village in North Cornwall and found almost nowhere else, I used to enjoy drinking a pint of Doom Bar, in the Doom Bar, overlooking the Doom Bar! Now, Sharp’s is owned by Molson Coors, the Doom Bar has gone (it’s now just a hotel) and the beer is apparently the UK’s no.1 selling cask beer.

    It’s a very smooth pint, in the vein of a country best, and almost unparalleled as a sup on a summers evening.

    1. Doom Bar splits the beer drinking community, it has no hops in it and so some connoisseurs dismiss it out of hand. I say who gives a crap, I watched a movie the other day and no-one died in it and I still enjoyed it. Doom Bar tastes great, pint after pint, end of.
