Exciting New Things

I know, I know, I have really neglected this blog but I vow that I will be better at updating you lovely lot on what's going on and new things we have in store. 

We have expanded our range of craft beers recently.  With exciting things happening on the craft beer scene and the ever evolving trends and brewery collaborations, our range does change frequently.

Hoi Polloi by Alphabet Brewing - Delicious and golden with bags of spicy Saaz hops from aroma and bitterness.

Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta- which utilises judicious amounts of Earl Grey Blue Flower tea to generate an intoxicating floral and citrus aroma with the quenching dry finish of an ice tea. A truly unique new world India Pale Ale with a decidedly old world twist. And really is one of my personal favourites.

Yeastie Boys Big Mouth session IPA-a light and easy drinking Session IPA bursting with juicy sun-kissed South Pacific hops.

Yeastie Boys Digital IPA-defined by its heavy use of late kettle hopping and very restrained use of dry hopping

Wild Beer Co Pogo -a big juicy fruit bomb with a low enough ABV to have a session on. Head brewer, Brett, built the recipe around his favourite tropical fruits: passion fruit, orange, guava and more orange.

Wild Beer Co Bibble -Hopped with beautiful Mosaic hops, helped along with some nice orange-y Amarillo hops the result is a naturally hazy beer, with a moreish bitterness that is complimented by tropical fruit tastiness.

Wild Beer Co Fresh- Every six months Wildbeer source some of the most interesting hops from the northern and southern hemispheres, which means two hop harvests and two excitingly different hop profiles

Island Records Session IPA -bursting with juicy hop aromas with flavours of citrus and tropical fruits, brimming with positive vibrations.

Piston Head Flat Tire-A balanced and rich malt body and a slightly marked bitterness. The American hop variety Centennial and Mosaic gives the brew a fresh hop floral aroma with hints of tropical fruit and citrus

Citrus Tide Dry Hopped Lager- gluten free and benefits from association from the Vegan Society. Chinook and Cascade hops are used and Lager Malt grain and infused with Mediterranean lemons making a refreshing, hoppy, and citrus brew. Suitable also for vegans.

Crazy Mountain Hookibobb IPA -A Colorado approach to the American take of an English classic, using three aggressive, yet floral American hops teamed together to make a bright, citrusy, and floral IPA. A deep caramel malt helps to balance the bitterness of the hops and lets the complex hop bill do its hoppy thing.

There are lots of other great beers to try including some Beavertown favourites, Brewdog beauties, Belgian and American delights!

Caio for now!
