In addition to a successful and award winning range of core beers which includes Barnsley Bitter, No.7 and Porter to name but a few, the brewing team at Stancill has announced plans to produce not one, but two special brews each month throughout 2017. The brewery plans to launch a series of new experimental brews, exploring different brewing techniques and beer styles which have not been previously available in Sheffield. This month, Stancill will release its American Nut Brown which offers a fresh perspective on the traditional pint – combining the full flavours of a traditional best bitter, with a strong hoppy aftertaste developed through the use of Chinook hops, commonly associated with IPAs. Head brewer Dean Pleasant believes the new beer will provide a completely different taste to all other Stancill beers, as he is planning to use a brand new yeast strain to create the beer. Dean said: “I’ve always believed that as well as producing our popular choice of beers, it’s important to experiment, innovate and develop – it’s the lifeblood of the brewing industry and by devoting additional time to the creation of new specials, we’re hoping to explore some old and long-forgotten beer types whilst adding our own interpretation to the recipes.” Each month will see the release of a brand new special alongside an as of yet un-named blonde ale, which also explores different characteristics of the popular beer variety. Previous Stancill specials have included 2016 world cup themed ales Zidane Zidane and Four Lions, summer themed special American Beauty and the much loved Christmas tipples Blizzard, Red Velvet and its unusual green beer Mistletoe. American Nut Brown will be making its way to pubs throughout Sheffield and further afield throughout January and will be available at the brewery’s pubs The Norfolk Arms in Grenoside and The Horse & Jockey in Wadsley. CAMRA members can benefit from a 20% discount in both pubs, making a pint of any Stancill tipple just £2.
