We’ve had these beers before in cask and they’ve been very well received. Thankfully now we can offer them to our website customers too, in cans. Three brews from Ghost Brew Co in Baildon, West Yorkshire. There’s “Reaper” Session Pale, “Banshee” India Rye Ale and “Phantom” IPA. The artwork on these cans is, well, a work of art and the beer inside is too.
The wonderous people at Fallen Brewing Company are knocking it out of the park again. They’re hitting us with a rattling one-two in the tastebuds. Not only have they re-released “Big Raspberry Dog Chew”, they’ve also launched a hugely flavourful Double IPA. Named “The Big 1” this DIPA is choc full of Mosaic, Amarillo and Citra hops so it’s as juicy as they come. 8.5%abv too so treat this one with respect.
We’re fair chuffed to be able to offer you a beer from one of England’s most interesting and innovative breweries just now. New kids DEYA Brewing Company from Cheltenham are making beer drinkers sit up and take notice and are already listed as the top English brewery on Untappd, beating the likes of Cloudwater and Verdant. They’re also one half of the talent responsible for the Honey Milkshake Pale we stocked recently, a collaboration Brew with another up and coming English brewery, Odyssey. This time we have Deya’s “Steady Rolling Man” in 500ml cans. Canned on 30th of March, these are as fresh as can be. A 5.2% Pale, unfiltered, unpasteurised, unfined. Soft, juicy and hazy. Tropical flavours abound from the Mosaic hops used (amongst others) in abundance.
Two new beers in from another new brewery to us – Totally Brewed from Nottingham. “4 Hopmen of the Apocalypse” is their flagship IPA. 5.2% with orange blossom and pine aromas, heavily hopped with a bitter finish. “Papa Jangles Voodoo Stout” is a 4.5% stout brewed with seven different malts to give it a complex flavour profile with chocolate and coffee dominant.
**THIS JUST IN!** from Neon Raptor Brewing Co. in Derby. “Endangered” is a 6.6% American style Bourbon Vanilla Porter. Brewed with seven different Malt grains, bittered with German and English hops and matured with Oak, Kentucky Bourbon and Madagascan vanilla. Dangerously tasty!
With one eye on summer and hopefully some sunshine, we’ve got a couple of new beers from Farmageddon Brewing Co-Op in Northern Ireland. Adding to their line up on our shelves is “California Common” and “Golden Pale”. Think malty, biscuity, citrusy flavours and aromas. Now all we need is some BBQ weather!
Bit of a rarity has landed in our warehouse today. Two of the most exciting new breweries in the UK just now, Odyssey Brew Co and DEYA Brewing Company got together earlier this year and brewed a beer. The resulting brew was “Honey Bee Good” – a honey milkshake pale ale. Both breweries brought honey from their respective counties (Herefordshire and Gloucestershire) to add to the beer. There was only one brew done and it’s unlikely ever to be repeated. Most of the cans were distributed to bottle shops in England but we managed to get a small amount North of the Wall! Get on it cos it won’t “bee” around forever!
Something a bit special for you now folks. Certainly the brewers involved are a “bit special” that’s for sure. 😉 Make way for an avalanche of ‘punn-age’ coming your way! Two Barrel Aged versions of a Barclay Perkins strong bitter (originally brewed by Barclay Perkins in 1909) One Barrel Aged in an ex Bourbon cask – “Emma Bourbon” and one Barrel Aged in an ex Sherry cask – “Sherry Halliwell” Both storming in at 7.4% abv. Yes, for reasons best known to themselves, Lawman Brewing Company and Elixir Brew Co. have decided to brew a Spice Girls tribute brew and Barrel Age it. Here’s what’s on the bottle label to try and…clarify things a little for you: “So here’s the story from A to Z……in 1909 Barclay Perkins brewed their heavily hopped, strong”KK ale”. 87 uneventful years passed before The Spice Girls gave us what we really, really wanted and 90 million people agreed
We really really really wanna zig-a-zig-ah
Zig-a-zig-BA beers are an Imperial, barrel aged tribute to these British Legends. Strong, blonde, bitter and aged. To be enjoyed solo, as a duo, or see what happens when ‘two become one’…”
They’re both quite mad, obviously. They make damn good beers though – and we still have our sale on right now so you’d be daft not to!
With the addition of “Just The Ticket” today, we now have the full range of Fallen Brewing Company cans in stock. Or to put it another way: “We now have ALL the cans, and they’re the BEST Fallen cans…..we’re going to build a WALL with the cans and get MEXICO to pay for it….BIGLY….do you know what cans are?…they contain beer and soda…..and sometimes beans and soup….but not uranius.” 😉
