We’ve had so much going on what with the brewery build, we thought we’d just do a quick post with all the info you might need on the new beers lined up for the rest of 2017, because there’s quite a few! So here we go…
First up, available from December – It’s our classic Christmas brew Yule Fuel. Available in bottle 5% and on draught 4.3%. This rich and hearty winter ale is brewed with plenty of caramel sweetness to balance a full berry-fruit hop flavour. It’s the perfect beer for long winter evenings by the fire. If you don’t have an open fire, check out Fireplace For Your Home on Netflix, ok so it’s not quite the same…
Up next we’ve got the long awaited Bounty Hunter 4.8% available in both 500ml bottle and cask. Bounty Hunter is a big full-flavoured milk stout with a rich mouthfeel and smooth finish. Cocoa nibs and toasted coconut flakes add great bitter chocolate and coconut flavours, this is the grown up version of your favourite desert island inspired chocolate bar.
Need another dark wintery beer? You’re in luck! How about a very limited edition Barrel-Aged Tamesis Extra Stout V1 6%? Black as night with golden highlights, this barrel aged stout is a creamy rollercoaster. Its velvety smooth texture and medium bitterness intensify flavours of caramelized dates and roasted coffee beans. After 6 months maturing in bourbon barrels, this beer is slightly on the drier side, with a gratifyingly warm mouthfeel. Available in 500ml bottles, wax sealed for cellaring ease and a limited amount on draught only from our very own Taproom.
Let’s not forget our Renegade product range! If you’re thinking ‘these dark beers are all well and good, but I like an altogether lighter yeasty beverage sir/madam…’ then don’t panic, we’ve got you covered there as well…
It’s hoppy, it’s fruity and you can drink it again and again (crushable, for those that weren’t sure what that meant) It’s India Session Ale! All the flavour punch of a big hitting IPA, without the knee-trembling ABV. Brewed using the finest US hops Mosaic and Citra, this beer provides a smack of tropical fruit with an exceptionally well balanced bitterness. Oats provide a full body to support the intensely hoppy flavour. Available in 300ml can, 330ml bottle and keg.
Into lager but always thinking ‘there’s probably more to beer than this’? Your answer is Vienna Lager 4.8%. Our modern interpretation of a traditional Vienna Lager delivers a complex hop aroma with an equal amount of maltiness. We use toasted malts for a characteristic residual sweetness and add New World hops for a contemporary bitterness. Expect understated sweetness with more than a hint of hops. It melts in your mouth.
Last but not least, if you’re feeling a bit more hard core this Christmas we’ve got Limited Edition Snake Oil DIPA, available in 440ml bottle and keg. Hoppy as hell, masses of stone fruit and over-ripe mango on the nose. Biscuit and crisp bitterness in and around the mouth. At 7.5%, casual merriment is sure to ensue!
You can get all our bottles and cans right here at the brewery, and also order any cask beer in either 9 pint mini kegs, 18 pint mini pins, 36 pint polypins or even 72 pint firkins! We also offer Free Delivery in the local area on a Friday, so you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home.
Well I think that’s enough for 2017, ta ta for now!
