Don’t let the name fool you: While this traditional English pub does serve locally brewed beers, they’re not brewed on-site nor are they made by the Northrock Brewing Company, a now-defunct Bermuda brewer. All of this mid-island watering hole's local tap beers are brewed at the Dockyard Brewing Company in the Royal Naval Dockyard on the island’s west end, and delivered by truck. The good news is that those beers are still very good and fortunately can all be sampled at once, because Northrock is one of two bars in Bermuda that provides beer samplers, five 6-ounce glasses of what’s on tap: Whale of a Wheat, a German Hefeweizen; St. David’s Lager, a straw-colored pilsner; Somers Amber Ale, a traditional English Bitter; Trunk Island Pale Ale, a hoppy IPA; and Black Anchor Porter, a chocolately dark ale. If all that drinking has gotten you hungry than stay for typical pub grub, such as wings, nachos, burgers, and of course, fish 'n' chips.
