Kelham Island Brewery

After 8 great years as head brewer, Iain Kenny has moved on. Under Iain the brewery has grown and our high standards have been maintained, everyone at Kelham wishes Iain all the best.

Succeeding Iain is brewing legend and all round great chap, Nigel ‘Hops’ Turnbull.

For his opener Nigel is taking us all back to the sixties summer of love with Hippy Chick 8% Imperial Indian Pale Ale. Hopped to the max with all the most aromatic American hops available. These beautiful resinous hop cones give a massively pungent aroma of lemon zest, blackberry, grapefruit and tropical fruits. Just to increase the aroma further we have added a further addition of pelletised hops before the beer starts to ferment to give a fresh citrus zing.

Making a welcome return for March we have one of Iain’s special ‘Specials’. Zombies of the Stratosphere 4.8%. A blazing extraterrestrial golden ale with a sweet caramalt flavour and a remarkable orchestra of noble resinous lime and pine aromas from two types of Styrian Golding hop varieties. The final adventure of the rocket man saga concludes with a zesty flourish of sublime fulfilment and satisfaction.

In the Kelham Shop we are getting down our limited run of Anniversary Ale 6.5%. It was run of only 5000 numbered bottles and when it’s gone it’s gone.
