Blue Bee Brewery

The students are back in Sheffield and beer is flying out at the moment however we are still finding time to squeeze in brewing plenty of specials. Firstly we had Stuart down from the excellent North Riding Brewery in Scarborough to brew a colab with us. So we decided to brew something extra special, the result is Little & Large IPA 6.5% which combines 3 of our favourite American hops: Citra, Mosaic and Sorachi Ace. This beer is big on hops with loads of tropical fruit flavour and citrus aroma.

As ever we also have another single hopped IPA this month this time using the new American hop: Jarrylo IPA 5.0% which has the rather interesting characteristics of spice, banana and pear so this is sure to be something a little different.

If you prefer your beer a little more sessionable we have brewed Centennial Pale 3.9%, a refreshing hoppy pale ale with lemon and pine flavours once again using American hops. On top this we are on to American 5 Hop Version 7 4.3% which this time will combine: Citra, Columbus, Comet, Centennial and Jarrylo.

Finally it is not often we rebrew our specials but Ginger Beer 4.5% is proving that popular we will be brewing it for a third time in November, it will be packed with as much fresh root ginger as before if not more to give that fiery kick!
