First up, if you’re reading this after 7 April, a HUGE thank you to everyone who joined us at our second Piss Up in the Brewery event! We are loving welcoming you to our home and showing you our progress as we continue to evolve and grow. Next stop, Sunfest at the Rising Sun from 11-14 July… save the date! Thanks also if you joined us at our events during Sheffield Beer Week, and a big cheers to festival organiser Jules for another great celebration of beer in our wonderful city.
Anyway, on to April’s new beers! In between all of those Sheffield Beer Week events we managed to squeeze in a collaboration with our pals from Ridgeside Brewery and have created Wayward Son, a 5.0% dry hopped wheat beer.
From the Brewers Emporium range we have a couple of newbies – the next version of our Voyager IPA is the first time we’ve experimented with cryo-hops (super intense, concentrated hop powders) and we’ve sprinkled in A LOT of Citra, Ekuanot and Mosaic. So expect tons of beautifully fruity and resinous aromatics off of this one. We’ve also got a new iteration of Voyager’s baby sister Serenity (3.8%), this time showcasing Jarrylo hops which promise notes of oranges and pears with a spicy finish.
We’re also really looking forward to be supporting the Festival of Debate again, which runs throughout April and May and is organised by our good friends at Opus Independents. We are proud to be sponsoring the “Who We Are” strand so look out for details of all the events, and of course our beer brewed especially for the festival! It’s currently unnamed, but we have plans for a deliciously quaffable 4.0% pale.
And finally, you might have started seeing our first batches of what is to become Heresy lager popping up at the Devonshire Cat and the Rising Sun – trials are going really well and we’re now just working on those last little tweaks to the recipe.
