August is our birthday month! And it’s an extra special one this year as we’re celebrating our 25th anniversary, so we’ve worked hard to bring out a series of beers befitting the occasion.
We’ve put twists on a couple of our most favourite beers which we’re very excited about – first up is Double Deception, an 8.2% DIPA version of our much loved Nelson Sauvin hopped pale ale. And we’re making Heathen even Mosaic-ier with a 5.0% Cryo hopped version, which we’ve imaginatively decided to call Cryo Heathen! Dr Morton is getting in the party spirit with his Birthday Extravaganza (4.1%), hopped with Citra and Centennial, and we couldn’t have a birthday without a cake so the next Indulgence is a super sweet and sumptuous chocolate cake stout (7.0%).
We’ve also got the next in our Hidden Treasures series being released – Dreadnoughts Upriver to Peaceful Power (4.0%) is hopped with Chinook and Green Bullet and features the River Don Steam Engine on the pumpclip. Brewery co-owner Sue used to work with this engine and was there when it was run for the very last time before being moved to its current home at Kelham Island Museum, so we really wanted to include this connection in our series of Sheffield’s lesser known gems.
As well as all these newbies, we’d love it if you helped us celebrate our milestone birthday by enjoying one of our flagship, classic cask ales, which have been a part of our history for a quarter of a century. We reckon that’s worth a pint – mine’s a Moonshine!
