Abbeydale Brewery

Lots to get through, so little column space! Be sure to look out for some VERY special beers this month, we are really spoiling you! Let’s start slowly and build up to the big ones!

Funny Luckv1

The latest in our Doctor Morton’s range is Funny Luck and it’s a classic Abbeydale style pale at 4.1%. A couple of pints of this is sure to bring about a change in fortune.

temptation smaller

There’s nothing like a bit of Temptation to liven up any evening. This 4.5% deep golden beer, has sultry dark fruit flavours, in particular sultanas, leading to a long bitter finish. It’s a beautifully balanced premium bitter if we can say so ourselves!

Everyone loves Black Mass, but we are going to push the boat out even further this month and brew a Russian Imperial Stout. Weighing in at a monstrous 7.1%, this behemoth of a stout will anything but subtle! Expect big in your face flavours and we will be dry hopping it for good measure.

Galaxy small

Making it’s triumphant return, just in time for the Steel City Beer Festival (hopefully!) is Galaxy 55! This caused quite an impact a few of years ago when first brewed and rightly so! A strong golden IPA jam packed with the Australian Galaxy hop. Aromas of tropical fruit with mango and passion fruit dominating the palate before a crisp bitter finish. I’m getting thirsty just writing this!

We had a good response to our blog on using wooden casks, if you missed it you can find it on our website. Expect more blogs in the near future plus a couple of firkins of Old Ale may well have sneaked out of the brewery by the time you are reading this.

The observant amongst the readers may well have noticed that both of our pubs, The Rising Sun, Nether Green and The Devonshire Cat have had a spruce up last month, and plans are in the pipeline for the expansion work at The Rising Sun, watch this (extra) space for more details in the following months!

Until next month, mine’s a pint!
