If you’re getting a little tired of the cold weather, Stancill Brewery has developed a brand new special designed to take your tastebuds on a journey. Endless Highway (4.1%) is a new brew which brings together three US hop varieties, resulting in a refreshing light American-style pale ale.
The unique flavours created within the beer are a result of the way in which hops are added during the brewing process. Each hop variety is added at different times in during the brew, allowing the different flavours to infuse and blend together to create a beer with a tropical flavour burst, citrus aromas and a zesty lime finish.
The beer is currently available in selected pubs across South Yorkshire – including Stancill’s quartet of brewery taps. CAMRA members can benefit from a 20% discount on all Stancill ales at any of the pubs mentioned above.
Meanwhile, last month we introduced you to Charlie Brown; the first instalment from Stancill’s new Full of Dank range. The first batch of cans arrived in the brewery in mid-March, but never one to rest on his laurels, head brewer Dean Pleasant has been carefully developing the next beer in the range – a 4.1% brew, which he describes as “Barnsley Bitter with attitude”.
Based upon a Vienna style beer, ESB (or Extra Session Bitter; 4.1%) is created using a secret hop combination, creating a nutty aroma and sweet malty taste, which is offset with a powerful hoppy kick.
Managing Director, Thomas Gill, said: “Barnsley Bitter is one of our best known and most recognisable brews, but we began thinking about what the recipe might have been like if the brewers who first developed the beer had access to modern ingredients and brewing techniques. ESB is a contemporary take on a timeless classic and, like all the beers in this range, features plenty of dank!”
ESB is currently available in cask and keg and will soon be available in cans.
