First up, we have some news on an award for our wonderful Moonshine! We are pleased to announce that at this year’s Champion Beer of Yorkshire competition, held at Rotherham CAMRA’s beer festival in March, our beloved flagship ale brought home the Gold medal in the Best Bitter category, and was awarded Silver in the overall “Champion of Champions”! It’s great for us to see our core range getting some love and we’re very proud that Moonshine continues to hold its own amidst a beer market which sees hundreds of new releases every single week.
Talking of those new releases, as always we’ve got a few of our own coming up this month. Following on from Waltzer, the next in our Fairground series designed by Carl Flint will be Carousel (4.1%), a pale ale with Sorachi Ace and Mount Hood hops for herbal notes with a zing of fresh lime.
We’ve also got a collaboration with Manchester’s Alphabet Brewery on the cards, and between us we’ve rustled up Kid Rynamite – a Baltic-style porter with a hefty amount of rye in the malt grist for robust spiciness alongside the classic roasted flavours you’d expect. This one is to be released in cans as well as cask and keg so keep your eyes peeled!
Doctor Morton’s Non Stick (4.1%) is making a comeback having last been seen on bars in 2016. A deliciously refreshing golden ale with mango and subtle melon flavours and a crisp, bitter finish. We absolutely guarantee this one won’t stick in the glass for long!
The Wanderer returns this month, and this time it will be a Bergamot and Grapefruit Tea Beer (4.5%), using the delicious Duchess Georgiana blend from our friends at Birdhouse Tea Co. We’re all really looking forward to trying this one and it sounds a perfect springtime brew. Let’s just hope we start getting a bit of beer garden weather to sit and drink it in!
Until next month, cheers and beers!
