Hello! We hope you’re all enjoying your indoor pints now that more pubs have been able to re-open – we here at Team Abbeydale certainly have! Our pub The Rising Sun is back open indoors, with a full food service running too, so do pop along for a pint!
We’ve got some lovely new releases out in the coming weeks. The next in our Hidden Treasures series is Explorer’s Sweets from Cobbled Streets, a classic 4.1% pale ale which features the Simpkins Sweets factory, located in Hillsborough, on the pumpclip. A family owned business, Simpkins celebrate their centenary this year and their travel sweets are recognised nationwide. The beer itself is hopped with Enigma and Green Bullet, available in cask only.
We are also releasing the first of our Hopback series since the easing of lockdown, this time featuring British Fuggles! We don’t get many opportunities to shout about English grown hops, so thought this series was the perfect place to showcase them. Gently earthy and floral, we’ve chosen to boost the aromatic characteristics with some bergamot juice for a delicately perfumey and well rounded beer.
And from the Brewers Emporium we’ve got two exciting new beers on the way – the next in our Deliverance series is a DDH Mosaic NEIPA at 8.5%, showcasing Mosaic in leaf, T90 and Cryo hop form! And our popular stout series is back with Salvation Tiramisu (6.3%), with coffee and cocoa combining over a complex malt bill, with sweet vanilla for a rounded finish and a fluffy creaminess. Delicious!
Laura, Abbeydale Brewery.
