May is going to see some pretty epic changes for us here at the brewery and we’re excited to share that we will be installing 4 new fermentation tanks this month! This will increase our capacity by 44% and allow us to experiment more with flavour development. This will also reduce the amount of water and cleaning chemicals we use, helping reduce our impact on the environment around us.
Once again we’ve got 3 fantastic specials this month, starting with The Governor. This luscious, robust dark beer is black in colour but deceptively hoppy. There is a touch of light roast to give body and depth as a backbone for a blend of resinous American hops. At 5.5% it’s a real treat.
Our next special is a real beauty to behold. Our Rapunzel is a very pale blonde, brewed with a blend of New World Nelson Sauvin and continental lager hops. Subtle hints of summer gooseberries and floral overtones are present throughout. Delicious!
Finally from our Brewers Choice range we have Tom’s Firey Fox. This year, Tom graduated from delivery driver and occasional mash-tun digger, to a fully-fledged full time brewer. With renewed enthusiasm and vigour, this gas-fuelled, turbo-charged chap is virtually on fire. His classic pale ale is brewed with the addition of fresh root ginger with a hint of lemon citrus.
Lastly, if you’re interested in attending one of our seasonal brewery tours you can grab tickets via our website at www.welbeckabbeybrewery.co.uk. Tickets cost £10 per person and include a guided tour and 2 free pints!
