March sees the return of Sheffield Beer Week and we can’t wait to enjoy some of the great beery events planned throughout the city. We were really pleased to welcome Luicenne from the Shakespeare down to the brewery to brew a beer for their Collabracadabra brew fest, the beer in question is a style we have not brewed for a while, a Black IPA showcasing American Ekuanot hops. At the time of writing the full details had not been decided but expect a dark ale packed full of hoppy bitterness. We also headed down to Steel City/ Lost Industry to join the Shakespeare team, Abbeydale and Neepsend to brew a beer for the event and can’t wait for Friday 13th March to try both beers at the Shakespeare.
Other beers we have available for March are the new American 5 Hop version 43 4.3% this time combining Amarillo, Columbus, Cascade, Centennial and Mosaic. We also managed to get our hands on some Australian Galaxy hops for the first time in a long time and have combined it with Mosaic to create a citrusy and fruity West Coast IPA with a bitter finish, inventively named Galaxy Mosaic IPA 5.8%. On top of this we have Citra and Simcoe session New England Pale Ale in the pipeline so watch this space.
