We always look forward to March here at Abbeydale Brewery, as it means it’s time for Sheffield Beer Week! This year taking place 6-12 March, there’s absolutely loads going on all around our wonderful beery city, so do check out the events listings and support your local breweries and venues.
We’ve got a special collaboration due to launch for the occasion, brewed in conjunction with Sheffield Beer Week and Indie Beer Feast. Cloud Peak is a 4.8% mountain style cryo-hopped session IPA, packed with the big hitting combination of Citra, Cascade and Mosaic. Soft and fluffy with a crisp, bitter finish. This one will be available exclusively from Indie Beer Feast at Trafalgar Warehouse and Hop Hideout from Friday 3 March in keg, with the first pour on cask taking place at the Rising Sun, Fulwood on Monday 6 March. It’ll then be available in cask, keg and can more widely while stocks last!
Look out later in the month for our other collaboration too, which will be brewed during Sheffield Beer Week and hopefully out by the end of March. It’s the next in our Deliverance series, this time a bold 7.2% West Coast IPA which we’re brewing with Newcastle’s Full Circle Brew Co. Showcasing Galaxy in the whirlpool, before dry-hopping with Idaho 7, Amarillo and Eureka. Pithy and piney with notes of pomelo and pink grapefruit.
In cask only, Citra is up next for our single-hopped Through the Hopback series (4.0%). As the name suggests, packed with citrus character with distinctive lemony notes alongside zesty lime and floral undertones. And we’re revisiting the OG Doctor Morton’s beer! Snake Oil was first brewed in 2008, and we’d never have predicted what it started! From “newfangled beers with weird pumpclips” to an extensive and entertaining range of easy drinking pale ales. Although the look has more recently been updated we’ve kept a strong hold on the humour and eccentricities this series brings.
We’re also pretty excited that Spring is in the air once more, and so it’s time for our annual release of Reverie, our 4.2% sessionable dry-hopped pale ale. Always a lovely one to enjoy on those first warm(ish) al fresco evenings!
