After a bit of a summer break, Steel City have had a busy month! After the collaboration brews Four Horsemen of the Hopocalypse (with Raw, Trulla and Shakespeare’s) and CC (with North Riding), which are currently doing the rounds, Dave travelled again to Great Heck to brew Yule Twig, a humbug-themed ale but definitely not conforming to seasonal expectations!
The next collaboration is something you probably wouldn’t expect – Steel City and Fullers! Gazza, Dave and Shazz are travelling to London to brew at Fullers’ historic Griffin Brewery. Steel is very much in the Steel City style, being 3.5%, pale and very hoppy!. Steel City beer in the Fullers tied estate, who’d have thought it…
Back at home, the latest brew is All Hallows Eve, referencing Type O Negative as well as Halloween. Pale and hoppy, All Hallows Eve packs 135IBU (Summit and Chinook) with Galaxy and Mosaic (including 2.6kg Mosaic in the fermenter!) providing intense tropical fruit flavours.
Bottles should be available from Beer Central (in the new Moor market) when it opens late November, along with Communication Breakdown. The first bottled SCB beer, In The Nightside Eclipse, lasted only 2 days on the shelves of Cotteridge Wines, so don’t hang around – you snooze, you lose!
