Well first of all we would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! We hope that you have all kept to your resolutions, and ours is to carry on brewing more beer for all of you lucky people! 2015 is looking like the year of collaborations over at Abbeydale HQ, early January saw the launch of the Birdhouse Tea Beer. Rebecca at Birdhouse made us a special blend of green tea, jasmine, hibiscus, rose petals and summer fruits, which were combined with some lovely Cascade hops. If you haven’t been to their shop at Nether Edge, we recommend checking it out! This month brings the launch of a collaboration with another brewery, and we are excited to be brewing with Rat Brewery of Huddersfield for the first time. The recipe is still being formulated, however expect the brew to be a strong Red Rye beer with plenty of hops!!! Mmmm hops! Did we mention we like hops? Keep your eyes and ears open for more collaborations with other exciting people for later on in the year, with the return collaboration with Raw Brewery on the cards soon! Dr Morton has been very busy recently with the return of Duck Baffler and new arrival Stamped Addressed Antelope last month, and there are several other new arrivals this month with Accent Compensation (4.1%), Sane Again (4.3%) and the return of Cask Paint (4.1%). All of these will appear at some point in February. We are looking forward to SIBA BeerX returning to Sheffield next month, we hope to see a lot of you there for that. Until next time mine’s a pint!
