During October we’re, fingers crossed, having a new kettle installed! This will make our brewing processes more streamlined and more energy efficient too (definitely a bonus at the moment), however it does mean we’ll be unable to brew for a couple of weeks – so the below is all very much subject to change! Anyway. Assuming our shiny new kettle lands on our shores when we currently expect it to (it’s on a very big boat as I type), here’s what specials we’ll be releasing this month.
In cask only, we’ve got Purgatory – one of our classic 4.1% pale ales with Citra and Delta hops. Really refreshing with citrussy and tropical notes. Joining it is Damnation, which is 4.5% and lightly golden with Columbus and Chinook hops for a bold, spicy character and a long-lasting finish. And we’ve also got Through the Hopback – Opus coming up, a tasty 4.0% pale brewed with a new experimental English grown hop variety, which gives a fresh, floral and citrussy character. It’s the first beer we’ve brewed using Opus so we’re really looking forward to a pint of it!
Finally, making a comeback in time for the first frost of the year, it’s the ever popular Cryo Heathen! A 5.0% Mosaic hopped pale ale with absolutely bags of mangoey, juicy tastiness and a lovely bitter finish. This one’s going into cask, keg and can so plenty of opportunity to seek it out.
Hope to see lots of you at the Steel City Beer Festival, please do say hi if you spot any of Team Abbeydale!
