The next of our Hopback cask only series is on the way, this time showcasing the Chinook hop (4.0%). Chinook doesn’t get much opportunity to shine solo, more commonly being used in a blend of hops, so we’re really pleased to be giving it a moment in the spotlight in this refreshing pale ale. Like a breeze through a forest of pine with a lovely, pithy grapefruit character alongside.
And also available in cask only, Dr Morton’s Safety Beer (4.1%) featuring the Aussie combo of Galaxy & Vic Secret hops is always a crowd-pleaser of a pale ale, with a tropical melange of passionfruit, mango and pineapple on the palate.
Moving on to our Brewers’ Emporium releases, Pathfinder from our hazy pale ale series (4.5%) makes a return this month, albeit with an all-new hop blend of Amarillo, Loral, and experimental variety HBC 586. Soft and juicy, with fruity flavours ranging from mandarin to mango and grapefruit to guava.
And we also have a couple of seasonal releases on the way! We’ve made our first ever Festbier, and gone as classic as we can for Oktoberfest (5.0%), creating a balanced, clean and crisp beer with a rich, bready aroma and a delicately spicy noble hop character. Full bodied yet uber quaffable! And finally, our pumpkin spiced beer Pilgrim (also 5.0%) is back towards the end of the month! Probably our most divisive beer, but we love it, and we’re very excited at the prospect of it gracing bars again throughout spooky season.
