Blue Bee Brewery

Firstly we were really pleased to win two awards back in October at Huddersfield Beer Festival. We won gold in the strong bitter category for Attack of the Geek 6.0% which also just missed out at Sheffield Beer Festival coming second in the same category as well as this Ginger Beer 4.5% came third in the speciality category  at Huddersfield.

Ginger Beer will be available throughout the festive period. Although Attack of the Geek has sold out, the next in the series will be available in December: Revenge of the Geek 4.5% is a red hoppy beer packed with Mosaic hops to give plenty of tropical fruit flavours and a combination of five different malts to give a robust malt body.

On top of this the next two single hopped IPAs will both feature southern hemisphere hop varieties the first from New Zealand: Rakau IPA 5.0% the hops impart tropical fruit passion fruit and citrus characteristics. The second will feature Australian hops: Galaxy IPA 5.0% these hops impart passion fruit and peach characteristics.  Both beers are sure to have plenty of tropical fruit hop flavours.

A few other beers we are working include Into the Void 6.0% a black IPA containing Columbus and Motueka hops. As well as Motueka Pale 3.9% which will be a crisp refreshing pale beer showcasing this New Zealand hop.
