The celebrations for Sheffield Beer Week are taking place this month, so there will be tons going on all over the city. We’re very excited to be representing at Indie Beer Feast at Abbeydale Picture House again this year, it was a brilliant day in 2018 and great to see that it’s already expanded to a two-day festival. Hope to see you there on Friday 8 and Saturday 9t March!
We are also particularly looking forward to the Food & Beer Pairing evening to be held at the Devonshire Cat on Wednesday 13 March – please check the pub’s website for all the ticket information. The event is being hosted by the magnificent (not to mention world famous) beer writer Melissa Cole, who we were lucky enough to collaborate with, so one of two beers we created with her will be released in time for the event. Keep those eyes peeled for the details!
We’ve got plenty of other new releases this month too. New to the Brewers Emporium and ready to lead us into springtime after a very long winter, we have Reverie (4.2%), a Citra and Cascade dry-hopped pale intended to transport your mind to a glorious daydream. Bursting with a fruity, floral flavour that blooms upon the palate.
We’ve also got a (name currently TBC) Farmhouse IPA coming up, brewed in collaboration with the incredible Siren Craft Brew. Look out for the barrel aged version coming later in the year too, and if you get hold of a can then be sure to save your label as artist Lewis Ryan has come up with another mind-blowing idea for our artwork!
Our next (very) limited edition Methuselah (10.5%) is going into cask, keg and for the first time into can, and this iteration is a Bretted barrel aged imperial stout. Potent and robust, a quintessential impy with just a hint of a bretty twang which rounds the beer out perfectly. This one’s been a long time coming and we’re very excited to see it finally making its way onto bars and shelves around the country.
Staying on the dark side, the next version of Salvation is to be released and takes the guise of a classic Breakfast Stout (5.4%). A carefully selected malt grist (with some smoked malt for added complexity) and plenty of coffee from Sheffield based Cafeology provide a smooth and balanced bittersweet stout. We reckon it’s the most important beverage of the day…
And finally, we have yet another collaboration, this time with Leeds-based Wilde Child, a brewery we’ve long admired. We’ve teamed up to make a punchy West Coast style IPA with a winning combination of hops. These guys will be showcasing a range of their beers (including this one!) at a Meet the Brewer and Tap Takeover at the Devonshire Cat in April too, so look out for all the event details coming soon.
