Our latest brews have included Osiris – a 4.2% New Zealand Pale Ale hopped with Green Bullet and Pacific Jade. It is clean, crisp and zesty with a smooth bitterness and notes of citrus and grapefruit – and a tweaked version of our stout utilising even more varieties of dark malt. Our latest IPA, which was dry hoped with mosaic in the conditioning tank, has started making its way out into the world and showcases the unique characteristics of the mosaic hop nicely with a big and distinctive aroma and flavour.
The collaboration brew with Abbeydale, Kelham Island, Exit 33, Blue Bee and Sheffield breweries for the Sheffield Food Festival went well (though some unnamed brewers retreated to the Fat Cat rather early in the day) and we were delighted to have representatives from the Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind along for the brew. Watching a pink elephant (the charity’s mascot) adding the aroma hops to the brew made for a slightly different Thursday afternoon at the brewery than usual! The beer – a six hop pale ale – will be available at the Sheffield Brewer’s Co-op tent at the Sheffield Food Festival at the Peace Gardens on the 28th-30th May.
Next up in the brewing plan is our Breakfast IPA collaboration with Hopjacker brewery, lots more Blonde to keep the thirsty drinkers of the Sheaf View and Blake Hotel happy and a red rye IPA when we can squeeze it in.
