Abbeydale Brewery

Apologies for last edition’s missing news, so there is LOADS to talk about this month! Firstly check out Laura’s Brimstone eulogy, so I won’t repeat anything here. We are delighted to welcome both Scott and Christie to our production team, moving from Brewdog and The Closed Shop respectively.  I hope everyone enjoyed Sheffield Beer Week and SIBA BeerX, what fantastic way to showcase what this wonderful city has to offer in beery delights.
Onto our beers! Drumroll PLEASE!!! First up is my very own Signature beer! ‘Baker’s Wheat’ a 4.9% Hopfenweissen.  I love German wheat beers, I love American and Australian hops. Why not put the two together? Expect classic German wheat beer flavours from the authentic yeast strain used, subtle banana and clove giving way to a quartet of hops with lovely tropical and citrus fruit flavours.  As with all traditional German Wheat beers, this will be unfined and intentionally cloudy.
safety beer 16
Dr Morton is rather concerned about everyone’s welfare and therefore insists that you have some of his ‘Safety Beer’ to avoid any accidents! Pale beer brewed with a combination of Australian hops, Galaxy and Vic Secret. Bursting with grapefruit, pineapple and passionfruit flavours, this will have you rushing back to the bar for another!
give a toss clip
We have a long standing working relationship with Opus Independents and the Now Then Magazine, and are delighted to announce the return of ‘Why Not Give A Toss’ to support their Festival of Debate season.  A wonderfully pale, blonde session beer made with European and American hops. A distinct earthy and grassy, pine aroma leading to a sweet dark berry fruit flavour and subtle hints of peach. Also look out for ‘Why Not Give More Of A Toss’ for their Autumn season…
duck baffler 16
Dr Morton’s Duck Baffler will also be making a return. One of our favourite recipes that we keep coming back to.  A pale beer with light, passion fruit and lemon aromas and flavours and a refreshing bitter finish. Made with Citra hops from North America, dry hopped with even more Citra for good measure!
We might sneak out a few other new beers if we can between now and the end of the month plus keep your eyes peeled for an announcement about our Mosaic American Pale…
Until next month, cheers and rest in peace Brimstone.
Robin Baker
