We’ve had a busy few weeks at Neepsend Brew Co. with a number of exciting things to update you on.
Neepsend are getting involved in Sheffield Beer Week in a big way this year and celebrating the collaborative and friendly nature of the beer industry by joining forces with a number of other breweries to produce some special beers.
We’re collaborating with some of our local friends to brew a dry hopped sour with Steel City and Lost Industry breweries, a grapefruit pale ale with Blue Bee, the latest iteration in our Breakfast IPA series brewed with Hopjacker and finally getting round to hosting the return collaboration brew with Sheffield’s smallest brewery, Regather.
We’re also brewing a beer to celebrate the connections between two of our finest beery cities – Sheffield and Norwich – with a Sheffield Beer Week and Norwich City of Ale collaborative beer, which will be made with Norfolk malt and a Sheffield ingredient.
If that doesn’t keep us busy enough we’re also hosting some of our very favourite brewers from a little further afield in North Riding, Hopcraft and Waen breweries. Expect hops!
All these beers will be showcased at the opening of our new onsite tap room for the closing party of Sheffield Beer Week on Saturday 17 March and you can keep up with details by finding us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
We have also, of course, kept the beers coming over the last few weeks. Our latest brews have included: Pax (5.7%), a transpacific IPA hopped with US, NZ and Aussie hops; Djanggawul (4.6%), an Australian pale hopped with Galaxy, Vic Secret and Enigma; Ottokar (4.1%), a Styrian amber ale; Raki (4.3%), a pale hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Rakau; Summit IPA (5.5%), the latest in our series of single-hopped IPAs; Lacuna (3.8%), a Mosaic and Ekuanot session pale and Zipa (4.7%), a Citra and El Dorado pale.
Heading to the Sheaf View, Wellington or Blake Hotel is – as ever – your best bet if you want to try some of these new brews locally.
