Isn’t this year just flying by?! Here at Abbeydale we can’t quite believe it’s already Sunfest time again, and for the 12th year the Rising Sun will be hosting an epic weekend showcasing 72 cask and 30 keg beers from ourselves and many of our beery pals. Hope to see (or have seen… depending on when you’ve picked this up!) you there between 5-8 July.
As usual we will be launching our annual charity beer at Sunfest, this year in support of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. Brewbell Wood (like what we did there?!) will be a 4.1% classic Abbeydale pale with Rakau and Motueka hops for a fruity body with hints of pine.
We’ve got a couple of other new beers out this month brewed in collaboration with real Sheffield institutions. You might have spotted our deliciously light and easy drinking Tramlines Session IPA (3.8%) out and about after its release last month – Tramlines itself takes place from 20-22 July (the tenth time the festival has taken over our fair city!) and we can’t wait!
We’re also releasing a big and bold IPA in collaboration with our friends at Peddler Market, exact details still to be confirmed as I write but guaranteed to be perfect to accompany all that tasty street food.
From the Brewers Emporium we have Wanderer 4 (4.5%), this time a re-imagining of our Japanese Citrus Pale previously released in 2016 – a light and crisp pale ale with ride added to the malt bill and infused with oranges, lemons and yuzu fruit.
And finally from the Doctor Morton’s range we will be releasing Myar Skikt, a 4.1% pale with a bitter finish. Originally named as a brewer’s apology following a brew that went awry, but went down well enough to warrant us making it again!
Until next month!
