Steel City have been on their travels, unfortunately twice travelling abroad to not brew! Firstly Dave gatecrashed the Maltgarden/Emperor’s collab in Poland, unfortunately the brew had to be postponed a couple of days due to a problem at the host brewery, then 3 weeks later the same thing happened for the Alchemik return collab in Sofia, the imperial version of Yellowcake. The joys of contract/cuckoo brewing! The latter did still include a visit to the Sofia Electric brewery and an excellent couple of days on the local craft beer in Sofia and Plovdiv, the beer has been brewed and will hopefully be landing in the UK mid-April along with some other Alchemik goodies.
Back at home, two beers have been produced for the CAMRA national AGM in Sheffield, a coffee vanilla stout named Contains Only Good CO₂, Free From Bad CO₂ and a hoppy pale named Let’s Save Pubs… Can I Have A Discount?. Both will also be available at the Shakespeare at some point.
