Busy times ahead! 2 New beers available from 17th May, the first is Indian Ink which is being launched on Tuesday night at the Grain Barge. Indian Ink was the winning beer in this years Homebrew Competition, it is a 6.5% Black IPA, and the winning brewer Ali Kocho-Williams came to the brewery to brew it with us. It will be available in casks and bottles over the next couple of weeks, so get it whilst you can and join us and Ali at the Grain Barge on Tuesday to grab the first taste of it.
Our next new beer is called Independence a 4.6% American Pale Ale, continuously hopped for an hour to give a big full and rounded hop character. It is tasting great from the tank and we can't wait to see how the flavours settle down once it has had a period of dry-hopping with some aromatic Citra hops just to finish it off.
After Southville Hops recent success at the SIBA South-West Beer Festival we have done a brew just for cask, it will be available from the 24th May. Those of you who love an American style IPA keep your eyes peeled for it.
On 24th May we are brewing a beer with Melissa Cole, before our Ladies Beer & Food Evening. The recipe is a closely guarded secret at this stage as Chris and Melissa work out the final details for it, but no doubt there will be some interesting twists to it... I can't wait to see what they concoct.
