Well, what a year! I think it’s fair to say that 2017 has been one of the best yet for us here at Abbeydale… we’ve undergone the first rebrand of our core beers in the brewery’s 21 year history, launched our magnificent Brewers Emporium range, had the BEST DAY hosting our first ever event in the brewery itself, embarked upon the beginnings of an exciting barrel aging programme and have even made the move into packaging our beer in cans!
Next up we’d like to introduce a new series, with artwork created by Adam Cooper, who has designed a film inspired collection for us. Space Opera (4.3%) is being released just in time to coincide with a certain space themed epic franchise hitting the big screen! The pump clip will feature (in what we believe to be a first for beer!) a QR code which will lead you on to a little animated surprise once scanned, so be sure to give it a go!
The merriment of the season is undoubtedly upon us, and so we have a couple of tasty festive beers to get you in the holiday spirit – Advent (4.6%) features Mount Hood and Liberty hops for spicy and herbal notes with a floral finish, and Doctor Morton’s Santa’s Helper (4.1%) – we hear the big guy prefers this to sherry so get on his nice list with this quaffable pale brew.
Resolution (4.2%) will take us nicely through into 2018 with an orange peel aroma, citrus and bubblegum notes and a peachy finish. January will also witness the return of Doctor Morton’s ever popular Duck Baffler (4.1%), a pale beer with shedloads of magnificent Citra hops, for a wonderfully fresh and fragrant aroma, citrusy on the palate with a refreshing bitter finish. And finally we will have Bootlegger (4.4%) ready to take you on a swashbuckling adventure with flavours of grapefruit and citrus, balanced by a fresh piney character.
We’re so excited to see what 2018 brings… we have a feeling it’s gonna be a good ‘un!
