We have been so busy recently we haven’t had time to write updates for Beer Matters, so here’s the first for a while.
Back in May we celebrated our 500th brew with Enigma 500 (5.5%) – you should still be able to get some if you are quick. But if you’ve missed that then here’s what should be making its way on to bars over the next few weeks…
First up is (unusually for us) an all-English-hopped pale: Jester Pale (3.8%), brewed with the relatively new Jester hop which will produce a punchy grapefruit and tropical flavour. Our single-hopped IPA for August will be Mandarina IPA (5.0%), brewed with the German Mandarina Bavaria hop which produces tangerine and light citrus flavours and aromas.
On to some more off-the-wall specials, the first of which is a Mango & Citra Milkshake IPA. Around 4.5%, this will be packed full of Citra hops and fresh mangoes with the addition of lactose and oats will result in deliciously smooth tropical fruity pale ale.
As well as this our next big 6.0% IPA was brewed to celebrate The Bar Stewards first birthday, with Charlie and Alan coming down to brew with us. The IPA was brewed using generous amounts the guys’ favourite hop, Mosaic, along with New England yeast and oats – expect bags of tropical fruit Mosaiciness.
