It’s been a while since we’ve contributed to Beer Matters but that owes more to my lack of organisation than a lack of news as we’ve certainly been busy.
We’ve brewed plenty of new beers and brought a few old favourites back in recent weeks and months. Just a few of these include: Godgifu (4.5%), an experimental English Pale Ale brewed with new hop varieties from the Charles Faram hop breeding program; Idaho 7 IPA (5.5%), our latest single hopped IPA brewed with a new US hop variety; Babayaga (4.4%), a Mosaic and Ekuanot red rye ale; Demeter, an American hopped IPA brewed with wheat, oats and spelt; Jambhala (3.9%), a six-hop pale ale; (pause for breath…) Massa (5.1%), a marzipan stout; Hildur (4.8%), a wheat beer with rhubarb; Lubin (5.2%), an oak-smoked wheat stout; and Brizo (4.2%), a Columbus, Citra and Nelson Sauvin-hopped pale. Alongside these we have our usual myriad pale ales jammed full of interesting hops.
We have also been opening up our new brewery bar for tap room sessions once a month (usually the first Saturday of the month, but keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter accounts for specifics) and had a blast for each session so far. They have got busier each time and we’ve had loads of lovely feedback and kind words from customers, so thank you very much to everyone who has come along to one. If you haven’t been yet but drinking beer direct from the source in a relaxed, friendly environment sounds like your cup of tea we would love to see you at the next one.
The next outside event we’ll be involved in will be running the beer tent at the Folk Forest in Endcliffe Park alongside fellow Sheffield brewers Blue Bee, Exit 33 and the Sheffield Brewery Company. The festival takes place on 21-22 July and is organised by the excellent folks at Regather. We’ll be nestled among the trees serving Sheffield-made beer alongside a host of independent food stalls and producers and a stellar line-up of music for what promises to be a great weekend.
