Neepsend Brewery

We’ve been busily brewing more new beers over the last month.

Mosaic IPA (5.5%) is the latest in our series of single hopped IPAs and was brewed (and dry hopped) with a fairly silly amount of the the wonder hop, Mosaic, for big tropical, pineapple and blueberry notes. After the success of Manna, our mango infused tropical pale ale, we thought we would have a go with another fruit – this time oranges in Mandarin (4.3%) brewed with German Mandarina Bavaria hops and curacao oranges for big citrus bitterness and bags of orange aroma and flavour.

Our latest stout saw us experiment with coffee and the result is Coffee Oatmeal Stout (4.8%), a seriously smooth oatmeal stout brewed with coffee from a local supplier with loads of roasted, coffee and chocolate notes. We also found time to fit in a rare repeat brew of Triton (4.5%), a pale ale tipple hopped with Citra, Cascade and Chinook with a brand new 4.6% American Red Ale coming up next.

At the time of writing, our return collaboration with Hopjacker Brewery (a 6.7%ish Lemon and Earl Grey IPA hopped with bags of Centennial) brewed at the Dronfield Arms was freshly pitched and we we’re looking forward to trying it at the Steel City Beer Festival.

By the time you are reading this the Wellington on Henry Street will finally (after one or two delays!) be open showcasing a range of our beers and we should have brewed our 100th gyle. Expect something 6%+ with one or two hops in it! Citra. Mosaic, Amarillo and Centennial have been put aside for this one…
