We have two beers out to celebrate Sheffield Beer Week, taking place from 7th-13th March! It’s always a wonderful time to go for a few pints in our fantastic home town with absolutely loads going on, and we’re paying homage to our city’s brewing traditions with Sheffield Rocks (4.1%), a heritage pale ale given our own modern twist. A balanced beer, completely characterised by drinkability and made using all UK ingredients. We were joined by Sheffield brewing legend Stuart Noble in the brewhouse for this one, who has been in the industry since 1974 and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share from his time at breweries including John Smith’s, Courage and Bass.
And we did tease you with this last month, but do also look out for Wanderer – Cryo NEIPA (6.0%), which is the new name for a rebrew of our popular collaboration with Peddler Market, previously known as Cryo Huckster. Super juicy, hazy, and delicious.
Our springtime special, Reverie (4.2%) makes a return this month with a tweaked recipe, notably a hop boost from Centennial Cryo. The result should be a refreshing pale ale with notes of zesty citrus and resinous pine.
For something a little different, we’re incredibly excited that for the first time in our 26 year history, we’ve made an ESB! This one is the next in our Restoration series and we’ve kept it classic, with Fuggles and Goldings hops. Just super drinkable, timeless and tasty.
Lastly, and something we might be even more excited for – Voyager: There & Back Again. Effectively a double Voyager, this Triple IPA weighs in at 11.2% and features the same West Coast bitterness/East Coast fruitiness hybrid that you know and love, but with all those juicy tropical notes singing even more loudly and an extra intensity in the finish.
Hope to catch plenty of you for a pint either at Indie Beer Feast (4th & 5th March) or during Sheffield Beer Week itself!
Laura, Abbeydale Brewery.
