Abbeydale Brewery

Huge thank you to all those who came out to support SunFest once again! It just keeps on getting better and better each year! We will announce shortly how much we managed to raise for JBMF, so keep you eyes peeled on our website and also I think we will sit down for a moment before we start planning next year’s festival which will be the 10th!

Talking of beer festivals, anyone heading down to London for GBBF can sample our Belfry. We have had to re-brew a small batch just for the festival, but I’m sure a few casks will find their way out into the local trade!

In other beer news this month, we are making a few beers with different types of barley other than Low Colour Marris Otter’.  Golden Promise malt will feature in Dr Morton’s Insane Root and give a more golden colour with a bit more sweetness. Expect plenty of hop character from the Australian hops, Galaxy and Vic Secret. Bold tropical and citrus fruit flavours come to the fore coupled with a lasting bitter finish.

Transformation has been brought back from the brew books and makes it first appearance for three years! A trio of hops from the US, Australia and New Zealand give tropical fruit flavours and zesty aromas. The use of Pearl malt gives more subtle toffee notes than our normal pale ales.

Look out for another signature beer to follow Bex and Gazmalti (we promise they won’t all be 6.0%!) and a Dr Morton’s Transfers for China toward the end of the month!
