Abbeydale Brewery

After the success of our 6% full-bodied-belter of a brew North American IPA and our Belgian Saison, we’ve decided to pencil in a number of extra special brews in our brew plan, with a West Coast Pale being planned for later this month.

May also sees the return of our very drinkable Surreal Ale series of 3 beers, starting with #1. This 4.1% pale was first brewed back in 2011, but its wonderful floral aromas and fruity flavours from the New World hops just had to be brought back for spring time supping.

Dr. Morton started the month with two new brews; The Wrong Stuff a 4.9% Mild and The Right Stuff a 4.1% pale and plans on squeezing in one more new beer before the month ends; Dr. Morton’s Chicken Vindaloo.

Our big news this month has to be our collaborative brew with American giants Founders Brewery.  Travelling nearly 4000 miles from Grand Rapids, Michigan to brew in the Steel City, brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki and team are pairing up with our brewers to create a beer representative of both breweries.

Ever the perfectionists, the Founders team are not committing to a hop grist until they have rubbed an smelt each hop variety in our hop store.  But you can almost certainly expect a strong, full bodied beer full to the brim with hard hitting hops.

On a final note, we’d like to thank everyone who came down to the Founders “Meet the Brewer” at the Devonshire Cat at the end of April!
