Abbeydale Brewery

A couple of returning cask specials to tell you about this month, with Doctor Morton’s Djinn Jar Beer (4.2%) making an appearance. With a hit of real ginger amped up by just a prickle of cayenne pepper, this is a pale ale with a bit of a kick! We’re also bringing back one of the first beers we ever created, Matins (3.6%). Formerly part of our core range, it’s great to see this old favourite (known by some as brewery owner Pat’s “breakfast beer”!) popping up on bars again!

To the Brewers’ Emporium range, we have a new addition! Splendour (4.4%) sits alongside the seasonal releases which also include Pilgrim, Hibernation and Reverie. It’s a beautiful hazy pale ale with literally hundreds of lovingly hand sliced fresh oranges added, the first recipe created by our new sales team members Mick and Sam. We’ve also got our next Serenity session IPA (3.8%) which is the tenth in the series, this time with an All-C combination of Centennial, Cardinal and Citra hops. And we have a new Wanderer in the pipeline, which is to be a kaffir lime leaf and lemon grass saison at 5.0%.

The final piece of this year’s artwork puzzle from the series illustrated by Lewy is coming out this month too, which is an as-yet unnamed collaboration with Box Social, a 7.0% IPA with Simcoe, Citra and Mosaic hops.

Finally, a couple of Funk Dungeon releases might start to creep out towards the end of the month as we gear up for Funk Fest (7-8 September, tickets via bit.ly/funkfest19) so keep your eyes peeled for those!

Cheers,

Laura
