The change from Hopscotch is now complete. My launch night as Crosspool Ale Makers Society took place on Thursday 14 February, so by the time the next issue of Beer Matters is due I’ll hopefully be in full swing.
The first pubs and bars confirmed to be taking the first batch are: Boozehound @ Cutlery Works; Two Sheds Micropub, Crookes; Guzzle Micropub, Woodseats; and The Itchy Pig, Broomhill. Plus more to be confirmed, (hopefully!). The first beer for the launch was my 4.5% Citra-hopped golden ale, Horatio Bright.
The plan is to do a Tap Takeover on 11 March at Two Sheds as part of Sheffield Beer Week. By then, I should have 2 more beers in the lineup; a 5.4% extra pale, The Lost Tribe, and a 3.6% session blonde, Sandygate.
