Abbeydale Brewery

SO MANY exciting new brews to share with you this month! First up, our friends at Opus Independents are hosting the Autumn Season of the Festival of Debate.  And so following on from Spring’s Why Not Give A Toss?, we’ve got Why Not Give More Of A Toss? coming out,  a 4% session pale ale brewed with Motueka, Cascade and Pacific Jade hops for a well-rounded, eminently quaffable brew with floral and spicy notes. Plus, an OUTRAGEOUSLY pink pump clip, so definitely no missing that one on the bar!


Doctor Morton’s been busy cooking up Mandarin Claw of Death (4.1%), featuring Mandarina Bavaria and Amarillo hops for a veritable burst of citrussy flavour – “not suitable for ducks”! We’ll also have a stout out towards the middle of the month, name and details as yet TBC but it promises to be a luscious and full bodied autumnal treat.


With all the festivities of the season coming up, we’ve got two spooky brews to be out ready for Halloween – the return of Evil (4.6%) and a brand new collaboration with BrewDog Sheffield. Brewed for their annual CollabFest, Iced Tea Dead People is a 4.6% iced tea beer using peach-infused Sencha tea from Birdhouse Tea Co. and a plethora of fresh peaches, to be available in both cask and keg.


Finally, for something a bit cheerier to combat all this talk of Halloween naughtiness, the next in our Beer Heads series will be out right at the end of the month. Our new pal Frolicker will be a 3.8% Sorachi Ace session IPA, promising tantalising flavours of lemon and coconut.
