Ah finally, warm weather! The sunshine (albeit fleeting) has been making us a bit jolly over here at the brewery and we are whistling while we work. And work we are doing! We’re having our busiest season yet and our new fermentation tanks couldn’t come soon enough.
As always we’ve got three fabulous specials this month starting with and old favourite, Ayrshire (4.6%). Brewed using English Bramling Cross hops, this timeless British auburn ale offers subtle hints of hedgerow berry fruits.
Our next special, Nightingale, is named after a beautiful mature woodland spot right in the heart of the Welbeck estate. This IPA is as British as they come, packed full of herbaceous notes from English Goldings and UK Cascade hops. The balance in this golden brew comes from honey-sweet caramalt. At 5.5% it’s dangerously drinkable.
Lastly from our Brewer’s Choice range we have a brand new brew that is seriously delicious. Jess’ Canadian Summer (4.5%) pays tribute to our Creative Director (and Canadian native) Jess. Summer time makes Jess dream of lazy days at the lakehouse, drinking a ‘Gin Smash’ (we didn’t know either), wearing over-sized sunglasses and reading a book. Super-hip Mosaic and Simcoe hops give truly tropical flavours making this a ‘totally stellar’ blonde with bodacious vibes, man.
Lastly, there are only a few spaces remaining on our summer brewery tours so if you’re interested in attending you can grab tickets via our website at welbeckabbeybrewery.co.uk. Tickets cost £10 per person and include a guided tour and 2 free pints!
