It’s been a great year for us at Neepsend Brew Co. and we’d like to take the opportunity to say thanks to everyone who has enjoyed our beer over the last twelve months and for the lovely feedback we get, which is always very much appreciated. We’ve got big plans for 2018, including installing a cold liquor tank and extra fermenting vessel in the brewery, expanding the malt store, a mini-kit for trial, experimental and strong brews and hopefully putting a bar in at the brewery so we can host monthly tap sessions. There are also some exciting collaboration brews in the pipeline. Should keep us busy!
Of course there will be plenty of new and returning beers appearing on bars over the next few weeks. We’ve managed to get in a re-brew of Mosaic IPA (5.5%), showcasing one of our favourite hops. Maru (4.7%) is a brand new NZ Pale hopped with Waimea, Motueka and Rakau for lime, citrus and passionfruit notes. Breakfast IPA MkV (5.1%) is the latest in our ongoing series of breakfast-themed collaboration brews with our pals at Hopjacker Brewery. This iteration is a Bucks Fizz IPA brewed with champagne yeast, bucket loads of Amarillo hops and multiple orange additions for an orange zest-fest of an IPA.
We’re teaming up with the good people at Rain Rescue Animal Shelter to brew a red ale called Raining Cats & Dogs, which will see 10p per pint donated to Rain Rescue. Klikitat (4.2%) will be an American Pale brewed with Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic – some of the juiciest US hops around – and a coconut stout may well be making an appearance soon too. The brew plan only goes as far as the end of November at the tine of writing so you can expect several other new beers too, though anyone hoping for a Christmas beer or anything involving cinnamon may be disappointed.
2017 was a busy and exciting year for us and we’re hoping for more of the same for 2018 as well as the chance to enjoy some of the many great independent pubs and breweries Sheffield has to offer over the festive period.
