Brewery Bits

Tickets are available in advance from Eventbrite that include your first beer and a sausage. The brewery is on Duchess Road, just off Queens Road (on bus routes 24/25) close to the City Centre.

September is that time of year when hops have just been harvested and a number of beers appear that have been brewed with green (i.e. freshly picked) hops. A couple of local breweries have brewed beers with locally grown hops – Grizzly Grains with hops from Sheffield Organic Growers and Drone Valley with Fuggle hops grown by one of their members in the Eckington area.

New beers from brewSocial include Jester Minute, a 3.7% ABV rich bronze coloured ale brewed with pale chocolate malt and Jester hops. As with all their beers this is unfined and suitable for vegans.

Collyfobble have launched a new beer Black Ower Bill’s Mother’s. This is an Irish stout brewed with roasted barley in the grist for sophisticated flavours of coffee and dark chocolate, which sits alongside a sweet creaminess and good body from the addition of malted oats. It is a modern twist on a classic style.

Latest beers from Stancill includes the return of Sophie, a traditional style blonde ale with familiar notes of honey to perfectly temper the malty bitterness for a comforting, well balanced pint. There is also a new special, Endeavour, a ruby special brew which blends three English hop varieties to give a distinctive blackcurrant flavour with warming spicy aromas.

Chantry have released Citra V2, a 4.1% ABV pale, refreshing, light fruity beer with hints of melon, limes and passion fruit. With a grapefruit and gooseberry aroma.

Intrepid Brewing Company are holding their final brewery tap event of the year on 1 October with fresh beers including some new releases on the bar and Sunshine Pizza in attendance serving out in the brewery yard. For more details check the brewery’s Facebook page.
