When I was in university, my favourite drink was the Snake Bite Black. It is a mixture of beer, cider and cranberry juice. I was told that the cider that they use is Strongbow cider.
This is me and my former classmate Cindy holding a pint of Snake Bite Black each..
This is Alan after few pints. GAHAHAH
Good old days!
My girlfriend is also a big fan of cider when she was studying in the UK.
However, when we were back in KL, we totally forgot about cider until we recently learned that Strongbow is available at our local pub, Boathouse!
We made a trip down to Boathouse on a Thursday night and ordered a pint of it.
A tall chilly pint of sweet apple cider mmmm.
Straight from the tap!
A sip of it immediately brought many memories. Especially the one during my birthday back in 2001. I had 4 pints of Snake Bite Black at my hall together with my classmates and this happened..
Those drinking snakebites or cider must control intake as drinking them quickly can result to being drunk and belligerent XD
Other than being a watering hole, Boathouse is also well known for its tasty pub food. I had this awesome Bangers and Mash.
If you’re wondering how Strongbow taste like, it’s like mildly sweet carbonated apple juice. It is made of fermented juices of apples. It is currently the best selling apple cider in the world and is currently imported from UK to Malaysia by GAB.
Gulp gulp gulp..
Other than Boathouse, Strongbow is now widely available in many other pubs such as Finnegan’s (Bangsar, Hartamas, Changkat BB, Mid Valley), Laundry Bar, Sid’s Pub, WIP and The Magnificent Fish & Chips Bar.
