Brewery Bits

Bradfield Brewery’s six month Barrel Aged Kerry stout has now been released! For this limited edition of Kerry, the original Kerry stout has been aged in Jack Daniels and Buffalo Trace Bourbon and Speyside Whisky barrels. Blending after six months of aging has created an 8% ABV imperial stout with flavours of oak, vanilla bourbon and spicy whisky, backed up by roast coffee and chocolate with a warming finish. There are 1,000 individually numbered bottles available from the brewery shop, hand bottled and wax sealed by brewers Sam, Kieran and Bruce.

South Yorkshire’s answer to the Coca Cola truck has been to kick off the countdown to Christmas – yes, the Bradfield Brewery dray vans have been delivering Belgian Blue, their seasonal fruit flavoured pale ale, to pubs and shops and it is now available!

That said it is no longer the only show in town for if you head down to Perch, Dead Parrot Brewery‘s taproom you can try their Norwegian Blue, a naturally hazy 4.7% ABV pale ale brewed with Citra, Simcoe hops and blueberries.

Stancill Brewery celebrated bonfire night by bringing back Treason, their spiced Yorkshire parkin porter. Treason brings all those comforting toasty, roasty flavours thanks to it’s nine-malt blend, with added ginger for that signature spark of warmth.

A recent brew at Neepsend heading for cask is Nago, a 4.3% pale ale brewed with Mosaic, Simcoe, Bravo and Azacca hops bringing lots of tropical fruit character.

Triple Point have been growing hops in their beer garden and these have now been put in a one off beer! Flora was launched in cask at their bar on 18 November.
