Blue Bee Brewery

As ever we continue to brew new beers. This month sees Born in the USA 6.0% appearing on bars around Sheffield and beyond. This IPA brings together our favourite three hops at the moment: Mosaic, Citra and Equinox all from American and when combined give big tropical and citrus fruit flavours along with pine like notes.  This not the only IPA we have out this month we have Equinox IPA 5.0% too. We love this relatively new hop variety and thought we should try it in one of our single hopped IPAs, on its own Equinox gives tropical fruit and pine like flavours leading to a bitter finish.  Also Geek is back and as for the time been we have run out of Star Wars films we have gone with Wrath of Geek 4.3% (some Star Trek reference I’m told) as ever this hoppy American pale ale is packed with delicious Mosaic hops.

In other news Ginger Beer 4.5% is also back this month and promises to be as fiery as ever, so be warned this is not a beer for those of you who don’t like ginger! As well as this we are on the eleventh incarnation of American 5 Hop 4.3% this time this pale ale combines: Equinox, ADHA 484, Chinook, Columbus and Willamette.

May sees quite a few beery events featuring our beers including over the May Day bank holiday Sheffield Students Union Beer Festival, Barnsley Camra Beer Festival and the British Oak Beer Festival at Mosborough.  And over Spring Bank you can find our beers at the Closed Shop Beer Festival at Commonside and at the Brewers Collective Tent at Sheffield Food Festival. So there is no excuse not to try one of our beers.
