We’re very happy to be celebrating the most exciting developments in UK hop farming this month, using Hereforeshire grown and harvested Harlequin hops for UK Hop Heathen (4.1%). These fantastic hops, coming out of our supplier Charles Faram’s development programme, produce elegant Mosaic-esque tropical flavours, with a refined citrus bitterness and a delicate, nuanced hedgerow character. There’s a gentle revolution going on in the UK hop world at the moment and it’s really exciting to see the breadth of flavour that’s been quietly in development in recent years – it deserves shouting about!
In cask only we have a delicious single hopped Amarillo beer on the way (4.1%), the latest in our Through the Hopback series of pale ales with a citrussy satsuma-esque character and a floral finish. We’ve also got Coronation (3.9%) coming up, seeing as we had quite a few requests for a jubilee beer last year we felt we shouldn’t miss the occasion!
Returning on the dark side is the ever popular Salvation – Cappuccino Stout (5.5%) which uses our own specially roasted blend of coffee from lovely local suppliers Cafeology. Creamy, balanced and rounded.
And finishing off our Brewer’s Emporium releases for the month we have a tasty New England pale coming up – Hinterland (4.5%) is full-bodied, juicy and pillowy soft, with punchy tropical notes of pineapple, coconut and zesty pink grapefruit from the combination of Vic Secret, Sabro and Mosaic hops.
