Blue Bee Brewery

The first week in April is not just Easter weekend but also the Sheffield Sessions Festival which is centred around the fantastic pubs of Kelham Island. This festival sees folk musicians playing in numerous pubs in the Valley of Beer. This year we have been asked to brew a special beer for the event: Oh Good Pale 3.8% which is a refreshing pale session beer packed with Chinook and Brewers Gold hops. It should be available throughout the Easter weekend at venues including The Shakespeares, The Kelham Island Tavern and The Three Tuns.

On top of that we have a few other specials hitting bars this month. First up is the next in our series of beers named after types of numbers:  Rational 4.4% is a hoppy Cascadian dark ale with a full flavoured malty body and bags of hop flavours from a combination of Cascade, Citra and Columbus hops.  Also our single hopped IPA for April will be Comet IPA 5.0% this will  feature American Comet hops. Comet IPA 5.0% has spicy grapefruit flavours and a dry bitter finish.
