Abbeydale Brewery

It’s been a busy month to say the least here at Abbeydale. The gargantuan task of laying our new brew house floor has begun, and we have seen our team grow by two. Amidst the mayhem, we’ve just about had time to do what we do best; make beer!

The burning question from every Landlord this month seems to have been; “Has tha owt dark!?”, a question we have hopefully satisfied with our pun very much intended, full bodied, oatmeal stout, Horrable Skellington. Holding our record for the most amount of malt used in a single brew, this deliciously dark and delectable drop descended upon ale drinkers, warming the insides of those who have felt the sudden change in temperature.

For those whose appetites leant towards the lighter side of dark, November also saw the much anticipated return of the Abbeydale Speculation which sees the New Zealand Wakatu hops harmoniously married together with some marvellous munich malt which gave a gloriously golden glass-full to enjoy in the autumnal months.

For all the connoisseurs who search for ales new and newfangled, this month has seen two Dr. Morton’s beers being produced. There was the quite quaffable and pleasantly pale Pasticide and many enjoyed blowing the froth of the ferocious five percent Four Yorkshire men of the Apocalypse, not to mention a beer to celebrate 50 years of Dr Who.

As we get ever closer to the Christmas months and without giving too much away, we shall be reviving some old classics as well as some new beers to tantalise your taste-buds!

  1. Hi

    Do you hold tours and tastings in Abbeydale Brewery, as I am looking for a birthday present for the new year.

    Kind regards
    Tim

    1. Hi Tim,

      Abbeydale don’t generally do tours as they don’t have any hospitality facilities – Sheffield Brewery or Kelham Island are better for that sort of thing. However if you fancy a visit there is a rare opportunity when we visit to present a special award to the organisers of Tramlines festival (Abbeydale brewed the official festival real ale). See the diary for details.
