Our brand new fermentation tanks were installed last month and they look fantastic! Our brewers are well chuffed with them and it means we can brew even more fantastic beer for all you thirsty folks!
We’ve got three old favourites back this month as well, including one of our most popular specials, Fruit Arcade (4.7%). This fruity pale ale uses a blend of hops from three different regions to give a fresh and clean fruit punch flavour, with an overarching grapefruit flavour from Chinook.
Duck Decoy (4.6%) is our next special and it’s absolutely “quacking” (see what we did there). Named after a quiet and secluded mixed broadleaf woodland spot on the Welbeck estate, this USA pale beer is filled with the mouth-wateringly fresh aromas of pear, orange and passion fruit, however at a low strength it’s a pleasantly light indulgence.
Lastly from our Brewers Choice range we have Seth’s Hillbilly Rye (4.5%). Named after one of our previous assistant brewers who had a love for vintage cars and kitsch tattoos, this classically American red rye beer pays homage to his beloved Western cowgirl tattoo.
This style of beer sees the addition of crystal rye malt in the mash for spice and heaps of delicious American hops to keep it punchy and fresh.
We have also collaborated with The Welbeck Farm Shop on a brand-new, limited edition brew. Earlier this year the brewery was asked to create a beer that was the perfect accompaniment to the shop’s butchery counter, and this 4.9% American-hopped craft pilsner is just that. The Crafty Butcher, a super fresh, lightly citrus pilsner-style beer is recommend to be served alongside grilled meat or veg (preferably outside, with music and people you love). Available from mid-July, it will only be available from the Harley Café in Worksop and The Welbeck Farm Shop.
Lastly, if you’re interested in one of our brewery tours we’ve only got tickets left online for our September date! Grab ’em while you can by visiting our website at www.welbeckabbeybrewery.co.uk.
