The latest special beer from Stancill Brewery is an experimental beer which has been named after the largest city in Kansas. Wichita is a 5.2% beer which features all the hallmarks of a classic American Pale Ale.
Brewed using three different malts and generously hopped with a unique combination of Citra, Amarillo and Mosaic varieties. To help give the beer the classic taste of a US beer, it has been produced using a US yeast variety, packing every pint with plenty of flavour from first sip to last.
Meanwhile, Brad Fitton has joined Stancill Brewery as director of sales. Brad has held previous roles at the now defunct Crown Brewery and Retford-based Springhead Brewery. In 2014, he was part of the original Stancill team who launched the brewery, and was responsible for developing the company’s sales strategy before leaving to pursue other opportunities. Brad returned to Stancill in August 2017, where he will be responsible for overseeing the company’s business growth strategy.
Brad said: “Returning to Stancill Brewery is a really exciting challenge for me. I’ve spent quite a bit of time working in the brewing industry during my career and it’s great to re-join the brewery team. I enjoyed working with Tom and Adam when they first launched their business. It’s incredible to see how much they have achieved in such a relatively short period of time and I’m looking forward to helping support the brewery’s ambitious future growth plans.”
