So yesterday I achieved one of my life goals. Like many a beer drinker, I’ve gone through the various life stages of drinking shit lager, drinking various “real ales”, drinking craft beers, drinking “craft” lager. There are 2 breweries that caught my eye and both are, for different reasons, why I set up Leviathan Brewing. A few years ago, I worked in Bracknell and spend a lot of time in Reading, and drank a lot of Siren. I also spent a lot of time working in London and drank a lot of Weird Beard. Once I set up myself, one thing that always frustrated me was that, as a very much metal music influenced brewery, whenever I thought of a good beer name either Weird Beard or Black Iris, had got there first. The one thing that has struck me the most about Weird Beard throughout had been Bryan’s attitude i.e. I will brew what the fuck I like. Yesterday he dropped of 12 beers as a gift. THE. MOST. DIVERSE. 12 beers you will see. All fucking excellent and testament to how fucking good Weird Beard are. Bryan Spooner @weirdbeardbrewco I salute you. ...

Last year we brewed a certain “ice cream” stout. It was a bit of a fun beer, went down pretty well generally and certainly had people talking (mostly lawyers). We thought we’d brew it again. We’ve made a few tweaks to improve aspects of it we weren’t happy with and plan to brew it again next week, so keep an eye out for it in a few weeks (with new non censored artwork!) In the meantime we thought it would be really silly to make an “Imperial Coconut” edition on the pilot kit, weighing in at 13.4% abv!! The sole keg of this will be popping up on Thursday at @thesparewheelnewbury! ...

We do love to experiment a little and, since we’ve been brewing on the big kit, we’ve missed doing that. Recently we dug out the now pilot kit and had a play! What the fuck is a Lichtenhainer? I hear you ask. It’s a slightly tart wheat beer. So, a Gose? No. Oh a Berliner Weiss? No! It’s basically a style of German Wheat beer that is slightly tart, and uses smoked malt for a subtle smokiness. Not your Rauch levels of smoky bacon, but a very subtle smoke from oak smoked wheat. We think this works well with a little morello cherry. So, now you know! Just carbing up the one and only keg of this that’ll be on at our TTO at @thesparewheelnewbury x @wild_weather_ales this Thursday night! The full Leviathan Crew (all 3 of us) will be in attendance so pop along and see us if you can - contact the venue to book a table. Can’t wait to see you all! #craftbeer #sourbeer #wheatbeer #beer #beerstagram #supportyourlocal #beers #suttoncoldfield #beerpics #craftbeerpics #newbury #reading #tto ...
