I’ve been meaning to get some words down, reflecting on our first year, 2020, and looking ahead outlining plans for 2021. Having spent this last week in bed ill, this will have to wait a little longer. Some things cannot wait though, namely deciding on the first brew of 2021. A key thing for me this year is getting back to being creative, experimenting with different styles, as oppose to playing it safe. First up then is this.... Continuing the recent ‘lager’ theme,“Descend the shades of night” a Czech Dark Lager 6.2%. Floor malted bohemian pilsner malt, multiple small dark malt additions, Czech lager yeast produce a complex, rich yet infinitely quaffable Czech style dark lager. Stay tuned for updates on availability 🤟 #craftbeer #beer #beerstagram #beerstagram #nocrapontap #supportyourlocal ...

Tomorrow, the first day of 2021, I’ll be publishing a lengthy review of this year and give you a bit of an insight into our plans for 2021 but, as it’s New Year’s Eve, I thought it appropriate to say at least a few words! Gotta say, I couldn’t have picked a worse year to set up a new brewery and of course it has been a challenge. That said, it’s been a huge challenge for us all and, given I’ve been able to do “my old job” at the same time as setting this whole goddam brewery up, brewing, developing the website, delivering orders, etc (I know, get the worlds smallest violins out 😂😂) I know I’ve suffered a lot less than many this year. My thoughts go out to all my friends in hospitality and other industries that have been hit hard this year. I just wanted to say a massive thank you. Despite the harsh conditions in which I’ve found myself getting this brewery up and running, I’ve found huge support. Both locally and nationally. I’ve many trade customers who keep coming back and massive local support, who have ordered beer from me over and over again. My highlight of this year has been getting out and about delivering beer all over Brum, meeting some great people with words of support and encouragement that really have kept me going through this. For this I thank every fucking single one of you. Improving things with each brew, ironing out issues with the kit, refining processes, I’m hugely optimistic for next year. I’ve a lot of beer planned next year and can not wait to get more and more beer out to you and welcome you all to the tap room. A very happy New Year to you all. I hope to be seeing you all in 2021. Have a great night, stay safe. I fucking love the lot of you x ...

Hope you all had a great Xmas. After a few days relaxation, we’re back at it this week with the last brew of 2020. However, this definitely won’t be the first beer of 2021! For the last beer of our first year, we’ve decided to continue brewing up different styles with this... Helles Awaits. Pilsner and Munich Malt, hopped with Hallertauer Mittelfruh, this Helles will be ready, well, when it’s ready, following a looooong period lagering in tank. Don’t worry, we’ll keep you updated! #helleslager #helles #craftbeer #craftbeerpics #beer #beerstagram #beerpics #nocrapontap #supportyourlocal #birminghambeer #suttoncoldfield #birmingham ...

I know times are difficult and uncertain for everybody but please, please, please, if you can, support as many of the little guys on this list as you can over the next month or so. This year has hit small businesses hard and the lack of a cohesive, sensible government strategy and adequate support will continue to send many, many business to the wall. Wherever you are in the UK, search out the small businesses in your area working hard to continue to do the things they love for you and, more importantly, survive. Thank you. Stay safe. https://www.independent-birmingham.co.uk/blog/birminghams-independents-who-offer-take-away-or-collection-services/?fbclid=IwAR2lb6P2STvS8gNvbtpPzp_k4fs5pSpFve_iJjUBygbnlVBtvLZHfxrsT7k ...

When we started brewing many years ago, everything went into bottles. Some good, some bad. We firmly believe some beers, or beer styles, are more suited to and are infinity better when packaged and conditioned in bottles. We’ve also found since we started brewing on, and getting acclimatised to, the full size kit our willingness to experiment and be creative has waned a little. This will definitely return, but we have decided it was a good reason to launch our small batch range, something that will always sit alongside our bigger brews, bringing some proper noise! First up ‘Blood Red Sky’. This is an Imperial Stout (10.5%) that has been conditioned on cacao nibs, toasted coconut and fresh raspberries. It’s a rich, full bodied, sweet, chocolatey, coconutty, slightly tart, pudding in a glass. This will be available later this month in 330ml bottles, so keep an eye out for more news as it will be extremely limited! ...

Beer News! Part 1 of a few! So, after a bit of a break from small pack, we’ve quite a bit of dark stuff coming up in both cans and bottles, just in time for your Christmas stashes! First up, something we brewed this week. We brewed this on a very small scale previously and decided it deserved a scale up. This brews’s also the first time we’ve tried fermenting under pressure, with the locking in of flavour and benefit of natural carbonation that brings. The beer? Fight Fire With Fire, a Dark Mild. It’s not quite ‘Imperial’, but it’s not your normal Mild at 5%. It is however tasty AF and will be going into cans on Oct 22. Yes, you heard right, a Mild, that’s 5%, in a can! But what in the hell is this world coming to? 🤘🍻🤘🍻🤘 #craftbeer #beerpics #craftbeerporn #craftbeeruk #beer #mild #beerstagram #craftbeerpics #leviathanbrewing ...

Couple of days ago, we brewed the first of the next beers that, after a little break from canning, will be going into cans. Something dark. Something that doesn’t conform. We’ll tell you all about it very soon! We also thought we’d try something out for the first time - fermenting under pressure, the old spunding valve being pretty lively right now! Mmmmm, locked in flavour 😍🤘🍻 ...
