Well we’re certainly ramping things up ready for the festive season so have loads of beers due out this month!
Firstly, you may remember that back in August we released Cryo Heathen, an amped-up, 5.0% version of our yummy Mosaic hopped American Pale Ale, as a special one-off for our 25th birthday… well, it ran out so quickly and we’ve had so many requests that we just had to make it again! It’ll be available on cask, keg and can alongside another variation – Fresh Hop Heathen! This one will be the same ABV as “regular” Heathen (4.1%) and sees us be amongst the very first in the UK to have access to fresh hops from America, frozen immediately after harvest to preserve all the gorgeous delicate nuances found within these amazing little plants. And just to round off the trinity of Heathen news, we’re happy to say that this is now a vegan friendly beer, across all dispense formats. So even more of us can now enjoy a pint!
As for non-Heathen related beers, we’ve rebrewed Salvation Sea Salt & Caramel Stout for a delicious 5.0% rich and creamy winter warmer. Damnation also makes a return – a 4.5% classic golden ale, with Columbus and Pacific Jade hops for a bold spicy character with notes of citrus to balance. The next in our Hopback series is due out mid-November too, at the time of writing the recipe is to be confirmed but expect a lovely light pale ale showcasing something delicious from our extensive hop store!
Doctor Morton’s Cold Store Jukebox is a brand new beer being released this month, this one will come with a QR code to take you to our brewery team’s current playlist of choice! (Assuming of course good old Doctor Morton can figure out the technology…!)
And after all that I think we’ll be ready for some Hibernation – our seasonal 4.2% dry hopped pale ale, with Centennial and Simcoe.
