Itchy Pig

The birth of a Sty-lish beer

There’s no ham-fisted attempts at pig jokes here!

Local brewery Exit 33 Brewing has joined forces with Broomhill micropub The Itchy Pig to create their very own beer, a beer with a twist in the tale.

Pete Roberts of Exit 33 said ‘The Itchy Pig owner Ted is from Kent and completely swapped career to open his own take on the micropub, just like I did when I opened the brewery – so, it seemed a good fit to collaborate on a beer together.

Ted and Vanders trotted along to the brewery and spent the day creating a pale ale dubbed      ‘Sty PA’

The pub guys where itching to brew a hoppy IPA style beer so after an early mash in we sat down for a quick ‘Pignic’ before adding large hop additions to the kettle.  ‘No porkies, this is a great beer!  All in all, it was a great day and nobody felt boar-ed or was left dis-grunt-led by the experience.

Ok I’ll stop now,. Sty PA is 4.5% and available at the Itchy Pig Glossop Road.

A beer launch party is planned for Good Friday.
