Blue Bee Brewery

After a busy October, with students back in Sheffield and the Steel City Beer Festival, November looks just as hectic. First of all our cask beers will be feature at Peddler Market in Neepsend over the first weekend November; look for our Amarillo Pale, Ginger Beer and Waimea IPA all featured alongside some great street food.

We have less time in October than ever to brew one-off beers with our core beers keeping us busy but we have managed to squeeze a few in. The one that we are most excited about is The Last Geek (6.5%), an IPA brewed with the addition of Vienna and Oat malt to give a smooth mouthfeel, but then with huge additions of Mosaic in both the copper and fermenter to give those big tropical and pine flavours we have come to except from this superb American hop.

On top of this in November we will have Waimea IPA (5.0%), a beer we have brewed before but with its great tangerine characteristics and high Alpha content it was one we had to brew again. We have also got our hands on some US Amarillo hops that we haven’t used for a good few years and have produced a great little session ale, Amarillo Pale (3.9%); expect citrus orange hop flavours leading to a dry finish.
