After a busy start to 2017 with the launch of not just our new look core range, but also our brand new Brewers Emporium series, we show absolutely no sign of slowing down! BIG NEWS first… we are throwing open the doors of the brewery for the very first time, to hold a massive party on the premises on Saturday 6th May! This will be a ticket only event, intended to raise awareness for something even bigger. The brewery is 21 years old this year, you might say we’re all grown up and moving out! We have completely run out of space in our current premises and are bursting at the seams and in need of a new home. Come along to see just what we’ve been up to and hear about our exciting plans for the future, all alongside drinking plenty of beer as course! We’ll have some one-off casks and kegs of our own available alongside a cracking selection of guest beers from our good friends around the country. It’ll be a fantastic day with a real festival atmosphere – there’ll be food trucks outside and live music curated by Now Then magazine, as well as the opportunity for brewery tours and exclusive tastings. We are planning that by the time you read this, our project will be live! Search for Abbeydale Brewery on crowdfunder.co.uk or look on our website for the link and grab your tickets before they sell out. Phew! After that massive announcement I suppose we’d better get on with what beers we have available this month. Our Beer Head series returns with Marauder (3.9%), swashbuckling it’s way across the palate with Mount Hood and El Dorado hops, promising a delicate herbal aroma and flavours of grapefruit and apricot. We’ve also got the return of one of our most popular beers, Dr Morton’s Duck Baffler, a pale ale packed chock full of Citra hops for a light aroma with lemon and passionfruit, and a refreshing bitter finish. Next up, we’ve been so excited to tell you all about our next collaboration, Four Degrees of Separation – a reunion back here at Abbeydale for three guys who were here in the early days of their career, and are now at Northern Monk, Magic Rock and Siren! This one’s going to be a big, bold and oh so juicy IPA, weighing in at 7% and taking full advantage of our mammoth hop store with our favourite hops from around the globe. Rounding off the month is our second iteration of sour beer Unbeliever – this time we’re releasing a Gose at 3.9% brewed with coriander seeds and sea salt for a classic gose flavour. Hope to see you all on May 6th!
