We hope a good time was had by all at the Steel City Beer Festival down at Kelham Island Museum last month! It’s always a fantastic event and it was great to have the opportunity to show off so many of our new specials, including the Sheffield debut of 1868 (10.3%), our collaboration with Jules of Sheffield Beer Week and renowned beer historian Ron Pattinson.
Onward to what we’ve got coming up! Setting sail this month we have Voyager 6 (5.7%), a juicy IPA with a heady fruit aroma – this time, Ekuanot, Cascade and Galaxy hops have been selected to pack in an abundance of tropical flavours.
Classic English pale Dr Morton’s Chicken Vindaloo (4.1%) is making a return, but with a bit of a kick this time as we’ve added some cayenne pepper to the recipe! Whilst the main batch is intended just to give a gentle tickle, we’ve got a bit of extra spice to ramp up a couple of casks, so look out for these special editions!
Now we’re into November I just can’t wait any longer to start talking about Christmas (sorry not sorry), and so we also have a few festive treats lined up for release later in the month. New to the Beerheads series we have a merry Caroller (3.8%), this time showcasing the Cashmere hop, which promises notes of tangerine, lemon, lime and honeydew melon. And our next stout, Salvation 6, will be themed around Christmas cake, being released just in time for stir up Sunday!
We also have some hugely exciting upcoming beers from the Brewers Emporium range. We’re getting our brew on with our very first imperial stout – the recipe is still to be fully confirmed but we can tell you that Lost Souls (11.0%) will be a smooth, full bodied, boozy treat that’ll knock your socks off! As well as this we’ve got a couple of new releases from the Funk Dungeon, which will only be available in very limited quantities, so look out with particularly beady eyes for Methuselah 2 (8.1%), a wild stout with cherries and cocoa nibs, and Brett Tangerine, a superb dry yet fruity brett fermented pale.
