Acorn Brewery

Acorn’s new IPA range will feature hops from Austrailia and New Zealand starting with Dr Rudi. This hop has a mix of aromas such as pine needles & lemongrass.

3 new 25 barrel conditioning tanks are now in place enabling us to increase brewing capacity by 20% These additions to the plant along with the new cask washer and casks brings total investment for the financial year to over £60,000.

Seasonal beer for March is 4 monkeys, abv 4.3% (for those who don’t know, a ‘monkey’ is 500). After a meeting with the 4 brewing staff, not to be confused with the beer name 😉 a recipe was formulated. Brewed using Maris Otter pale ale malt and Dark Crystal malt for a rich golden colour. Brewers Gold, Aramis and Cascade make up the hop grist.

Old No7 beer festival will take place over the Easter weekend featuring a selection of beers from the Isle of Man and also some of our local South Yorkshire breweries (please see thw website for updates).
