As I write this we’re back in national lockdown again – this isn’t the start any of us wanted to 2021, but there is hope on the horizon and we hope you’re all doing ok.
We’re really missing all our amazing pubs – much of our production has now shifted to canned format, but we’re making sure we keep brewing so that we maintain supply of delicious cask stock too, ready for when pubs are able to re-open. So look out for our minikegs which we hope bring a little bit of pub experience to your home! We’re also currently offering collection of freshly handpulled cask beer from the brewery door (served in two or four pint sealed containers – pre-order online before popping down to collect!). As I type the beer available is Grus, a delicious 4.0% easy drinking pale with a lovely ripe nectarine kinda character.
Onto our new beers! We’ve just re-released Huckster, one of our most requested beers of all time. Originally brewed in collaboration with Peddler Market, this beer a 6.0% NEIPA that’s super juicy, with added cryo hops for even more of a flavour boost.
And in big news… Brimstone is back (soon)! The first beer to be released in celebration of our 25th anniversary, many of you may remember it as being part of our core range from 2006 to 2016. It’s a tasty Amarillo hopped American brown ale and a real favourite here at the brewery, due to be released in the first week of February.
Also out in February, we’re looking forward to the next in our Deliverance series, which this time is a West Coast DIPA (8.0%), hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo and Centennial. This one is influenced by one of our brewer Jim’s favourite beers, inspired by a 2019 trip to California. We might not be able to travel at the moment but at least we can do our best to take your tastebuds on a journey!
And finally we’ll be releasing a new iteration of our puddingy Indulgence beers – a raspberry and vanilla muffin pale (4.5%) Previously released under the name Lady RaRa as part of our signature series in 2016 and now returning as part of our yummy range of dessert inspired beers! It’s a pale ale with a delicate hint of pink, creamy and cakey with oats, lactose and Vienna malt, plus of course oodles of raspberries and sweet vanilla. We hope you’re as excited as I am that it’s back!
