Happy New Year! Well 2016 came around rather quickly, and hopefully you have been participating in #Tryanuary rather than Dry January, but regardless, February will give you plenty more opportunities to try new beers! More on those later…
We would like to welcome our newest member of our sales team, Janie Hamilton, to Abbeydale and she is settling in very well! Those of you in the trade will get to know Janie well as she is going to be out and about on the road the majority of the time!
If you fancy joining us and working for the brewery (as long as you are reading this before February 12th!), we are looking for a new brewer! Dave Kerr, who many of you may know, has moved on to Northern Monk in Leeds, and although sorry to see him go, we thank him for all his hard work, and wish him well for the future! All details regarding the job are available on our website (abbeydalebrewery.co.uk).
Hopefully many of you have made the journey up to see the new and improved Rising Sun, with the extra floor space and brand new kitchen and toilets installed. We look forward to seeing you up there soon!
So as promised, back to the beer!
San Jose is the newest offering in our Lost Treasure series, expect big bold hop flavours with plenty of citrus and tropical fruit. This bountiful pale beer weighs in at 4.3%.
Mem in Black – another in our Signature series this time featuring our very own Jamie Memmott, who has fashioned this robust plum porter at 5.2% With plenty of real plums gone into the brew, expect deep rich fruit flavours with a nice dark malt backbone.
“Look into my eyes, no not around the eyes…” – a return of possibly one of our most scary pump clips, Trance Sister is a cracking little session pale ale at only 3.8% but has plenty about itself with its trio of American hops.
We are also releasing a three-way collaboration that we are very excited about! We have got together with Brewdog Sheffield and the Skull and Bones Boys Club (a Sheffield clothing company) to make a very exciting beer indeed! However, we are keeping things under wraps for now, but expect a mid Feb launch at Brewdog on keg, and also available on cask at other reputable pubs in and around Sheffield!
We should be rustling up a new British hopped beer in our Albion series, plus a brand new Dr Morton’s beer called Alphabetti Forghetti with recipes being concocted as we speak!
Until next month, cheers and beers
