…there’s no need to be a dick”. Paul Young, 1984.

Now, I do love a Xmas tune. I also love a Xmas beer. So, for our last beer of 2020 I thought why not jump on the fucking band wagon and bring out something Christmassy. Sort of.

And, so, here it is….

Inspired by the season of “illwill to all men”, this is a big, juicy old number. Frankincensed is a 6.5% NEIPA, packed with beautiful citrusy Citra hops, with some underlying grapefruit and piney support from Chinook, bringing a tongue tingling fruitiness and a smooth bitter finish. I do feel I’ve saved the best ’til last (for this year, IMHO).

This is being canned this coming Saturday. Once again, news to follow in the coming days on when, where etc, so keep ’em peeled.

Oh, and, p.s.Merry Xmas, be nice to each other.

Mid December, 2020. After the year we’ve had, I could be forgiven for packing up the brewery and going home until Easter ’21, but in the immortal words of B Real “I ain’t going out like that”.

Saturday we are canning 2 fresh new beers, so here’s the story on our penultimate beer of 2020.

A few weeks ago, our friends from Trinity Brew, the almost new kids, almost on the block, came over for a (socially distanced) collab. The result is this – “Kiss From A Rose”, a single hop hazy IPA (6.2%), with BRU-1 hops. Sweet pineapple, tropical fruit with a bitter finish.

Kiss From A Rose? I hear you say. By Seal? WTF is metal about that? Well, quite frankly, nothing. However, on brewday, I was a little stressed about a little drip coming from the manway of the kettle. The seal is pretty specific about how it’s seated and I’d lost a brew in an incident earlier in the year. Last thing I needed was another 825L of boiling wort to mop up when I’d guests round.

We were thinking about a name for said beer and then inspiration hit me “Why don’t we call it Kiss From A Rose, as I’m obsessed with Seal”. And there you have it – tenuous as ever – but the link back to a tune. Gotta say, I do prefer the 12in version of Killer he did with Adamski, but not sure that’s the best name for a beer.

Keep an eye out over the next few days for news on when this is dropping over Xmas and New Year. All good retailers, our web store etc etc.

Cheers

Chris

Following last week’s DIPA brew, I’d two more brews planned before I get all 3 packaged into cans in a few weeks.

Today was brewday of beer number 2. I wanted to brew something light, refreshing, indeed ‘summery’, if that’s a valid beer descriptor. I also wanted to try something mixed ferm for the first time on the grown up kit. With all that in mind, today’s brew was a Triple Fruited Gose!

Brew day went smoothly. The recipe was a traditional Wheat heavy and Pilsner grist, Himalayan sea salt and coriander added during the boil. I have literally just pitched a combinatation of a Lacto blend and German Ale yeast, and the beer is now in tank doing it’s thing for a few days, before I add a metric fucktonne of pureed Redcurrant, Blackberry and Blackcurrant.

I hope this will turn out as a nice, light, low abv, smashable summer beer. Obviously, I’ve wracked my brain as usual to come up with an inspired musical themed choice of name, suited to the beer. “Summer Breeze” by the Isley Brothers? Nice! “Miami” by Will Smith? Cute! Really worked hard on this over recent days to come up with something befitting of this ‘summery’ beer!

I give you “Red Before Black” (by Cannibal Corpse). Summery AF that tune mate.

Here goes with the third and final instalment of our new beer updates…

Instinct of Survival is the first beer I have brewed since the world descended into chaos a few weeks ago. Lots of oats in the malt bill, a big dose of Ekuanot and Citra hops and Vermont yeast bring a big, juicy tropical banger of an IPA, weighing in at 6.3% abv.

Evening all! I’m pleased to bring news of the second of our 3 new canned beers…

Cuckoo For Cacao is a very smooth and tasty Oatmeal Stout, brewed with a variety of malts, including Midnight Wheat which brings a smoother, more subtle roast character to the beer. The addition of liquid cacao adds a rich chocolatey note to the finish.
