Stancill Brewery has been working on two new summer specials: First up is a 4% summer ale and a genuine first for new brewery apprentice Jonathan Brown.
Jonathan joined Stancill in April and after working closely with head brewer Dean Pleasant over the past few weeks, Dean challenged him to make a beer of his own.
Jonathan’s first beer features First Gold and Styrian Golding hops, resulting in a well balanced brew with a slight orange aroma and delicate spicy notes. Jonathan was given the honour of not only brewing the beer to suit his own tastes, but to also naming it. He chose Jaxon, naming his first brew in honour of his newly born child.
Stancill’s second summer special pays tribute to one of the best known detectives of the 1980s with a brand new American pale ale, brewed using magnum hops. The result is a delightfully moreish 4.5% brew called Magnum PA. We know what you’re thinking… and you’re right. Hawaiian shirt and big moustache optional!
