How has it got to July, or as it’s known here at Abbeydale “Sunfest month”, already?! We all can’t wait to put Sunfest on at the Rising Sun for the 11th time this year and hope to see (or have seen, depending on when you read this!) many of you there between the 6th and 9th of July. Make sure you try a pint of our beer brewed in support of Cavendish Cancer Care too, with 10p from every pint going to the charity.
In other news! Firstly, we’re very excited to announce we will be brewing three collaborations this month. We will be creating a historical collaboration brew with renowned beer historian Ron Pattison and Jules from Sheffield Beer Week. Look out for our strong Scotch ale coming soon, with some of the brew being kept back and aged in wooden barrels to be released during Sheffield Beer Week 2018! We’re also rustling up another fruity concoction (as yet unnamed) with the pups at Brewdog Sheffield, to be released towards the end of the month. And finally, two of the team are heading over to Barcelona for the return leg of our collaboration with the lovely guys from Insituto de la Cerveza Artesana, who brewed Encantada with us earlier in the year.
In terms of beers making their way onto bars this month, we’ll have our latest Beerhead, Schemer (3.8%), plotting his way into your pint glass! Dry hopped with Azacca for a hit of mango on the aroma, and a piney, citrusy flavour. The aforementioned charity beer will be on offer too, Triple C, hopped with three different hops beginning with C! Doctor Morton is up to his old tricks shaking his Bag O’ Nuts (4.1% pale) and finally we have a release of Arson (4.4%) with brand new artwork. Expect fruity aromas with hints of biscuit and caramel complemented by a bitter orange finish.
