Blue Bee Brewery

It’s been a busy start to 2018! Firstly, Triple Hop (4.3%) has proven so popular we have added it to our core range. Starting with a personal favorite brew of ours, Born in the USA (6.0%), we dropped the ABV to create this session IPA. Combining three great American hops (Citra, Mosaic and Ekuanot) to give a big tropical and citrus hop kick, along with additions of both Vienna and Munich malts to give a slight sweetness to counteract the dry hop finish this is a great addition to our core range. If you are yet to try Triple Hop, it can be found on the bar at the Kelham Island Tavern as well as on the guest pumps of other great pubs throughout the city and beyond.

February also sees a couple of specials leaving the brewery. First up is a rebrew from a similar time last year, Land of the Long White Cloud (3.5%). Slightly tweaked from the previous brew, this time this session pale is packed with Motueka, Dr Rudi and Waimea hops, all from New Zealand, to give resinous hop flavours with hints of lime and tangerine. Secondly we have Planet Caravan (6.0%) a black IPA named after a lesser-known Black Sabbath song. This black IPA combines Eureka, Columbus, Ekuanot and Simcoe to give the citrus hop flavours you come to expect from a conventual IPA but is balanced by a slight roasted malt flavour in the background. Both this beers should be hitting bars of Sheffield throughout February.
