After showcasing the New Zealand Sticklebract hop in July’s single hopped IPA its Australia’s turn for August, we have used the Helga hop which is developed from the German Hallertau Mittlefruh hop. A versatile hop bursting with floral aromas. Looking forward to this one.
The team down in Barnsley are also busy brewing the regular seasonal and always popular in late summer Forester, a 4.5% Amber ale brewed with Challenger and Mount Hood hops.
In other news, we’ve recently had a Taiwanese student working with us on a placement from his brewing course at Sheffield University. HanNing has been with us throughout July learning about the brewing process and the day to day operation of the brewery and he’s been a great help. He decided to give teaching a break in Taiwan and come to the UK and learn how to make great beer – we’d like to think that’s the reason he chose to spend time with Acorn!!
