Blue Bee Brewery

As I write this now we are currently racking Gyle 400 at Blue Bee. To mark this milestone we had originally planned on Brewing a 6% coffee milk stout using coffee from Frazers Roasters of Sheffield. However due to bad planning on our part we had to postpone this brew, not to worry though the stout will be gyle 402.

Land-of-the-Long-White-ClouSo instead for gyle 400 we brewed something quite different: Land of the Long White Cloud 3.5% the lowest abv Beer we’ve brewed for a long time. This New Zealand hopped session pale is packed with Motueka, Rakau and Waimea hops which impart citrus, lime and pine like flavours. Although low in alcohol this beer won’t be short in flavour.

On top of that, March will see Chinook Red  4.7% hitting the bars of Sheffield. This red beer has a biscuity malt base along with punchy grapefruit hop flavours from the American Chinook hops.

This month’s single hopped IPA is Waimea IPA  5.0% showcasing the New Zealand hop Waimea which is said to have tangerine, citrus and pine characteristics; expect a bitter finish from this high alpha hop.
