Top Out Brewery – Drei Hopped, Smoked Porter (Chillies & Oak)

Top Out BreweryWe’ve two new beers from Top Out Brewery to tell you about. The first is “Drei Hopped” – a heavily hopped Rye Pale Ale. Drei is German for three (Michael & Andy of Top Out are both German) and the number of new world hop varieties used in this seriously hoppy (dry hopped of course) beer. Plus it’s only 2.8% abv so it’s a sessionable hop bomb too! The second is a twist on Top Out’s “Smoked Porter” – this subtly smokey porter has had flavourful Ancho chillis added to give notes of plums and pipe tobacco but just a touch of heat, while heavily toasted French oak chips add vanilla tones.

Farmageddon Brewing Co-op

Farmageddon BreweryTwo new brews added to our Farmageddon Brewing Co-Op line up today. There’s a Double IPA at 8.1% abv brewed with Sorachi Ace, Equinox and Galaxy hops. Plus there’s a Vermont IPA – this is their take on a North East IPA – Citra, Summer and Simcoe hops pack this beer with peach and mango, boosted by peachy fruit esters from the Vermont ale yeast. This is built on a silky smooth malt base, loaded with oats to make this beer a big cloudy, juicy bomb. Sound lush don’t they?

Wild Weather Ales

Wild Weather AlesHeading into the weekend with some more new beers, fresh off the pallet and straight on the website today! From Wild Weather Ales near Reading we have four cans. Two are sours; ‘Blood of Angry Men’ (raspberry sour) and ‘Dark of Ages Past’ (blueberry sour) Lingering raspberry/blueberry meets searing sour to discuss a treaty within the mouth. A complex blend of berries works alongside a light malt bill to create a complex sour. The fun doesn’t end there though! These sours were created with blending in mind, so mix it up and see what happens πŸ˜‰ Then there’s ‘Fight Like A Cow’ – a collaboration with Elusive Brewing. This is an orange & vanilla dessert pale. Orange, white chocolate, vanilla and biscuit flavours. Last but by no means least, there’s ‘Great British Opaque Off’ – a collaboration with Bad Seed Brewery. It’s a New England style IPA murky fruit bomb. The artwork on these cans is just as entertaining as the beers so it’s a win-win situation πŸ˜ƒ

Odyssey Brew Co

Odyssey Brew CoThe wait is finally over – the drought is broken! We have Odyssey Brew Co bottles in stock again!! Small batch, hugely hopped, much sought-after beers from Hereford.

There are five beers in this shipment: “Revenant” – Traditional British Ale yeast and British malts combine with American hops used in Odyssey quantities. Old meets new, a return to the future. This beer is juicy, hazy, hoppy and balanced. “Crowd Control” – A firm but unobtrusive malt base provides the backdrop for massive, frankly uneconomic, late hop and dry hop additions. Resinous and pungent, Crowd Control finishes with our signature bitterness.
“Little India” – This. Is. Not. A. Pale. Ale. Golden in colour Little India is hopped to levels that most breweries simply will notconsider for a beer of this modest strength. The result is a wild ride through intense hop aroma, big juicy citrus and mouth drying bitterness.
“The Cult” – As with all ‘Vermont’ style beers, The Cult is hazy with a huge burst of juicy goodness on the nose and first swig; it’s initially soft, hop saturated and gorgeous. Despite that this beer finishes with decent bitterness – ‘we have no intention of brewing a 20 IBU fruit juice!’
“The Occult” – A special and gently kilned German black malt provides the colour and complexity, but in harmony with the huge hopping levels. On the palate this beer is soft and juicy: think midget gems wrapped in sweet liquorice.

Brew York Eternal Hoptimist

Brew York Eternal HoptimistBig hitters right and left appearing on the website just now! Laying waste to all before it is a belter of a triple IPA (yes, you read that right, triple…DIPA’s are *so* last week!) from Brew York. Weighing in at 10.5% abv but sneakily hiding its strength behind a nectary richness of flavour. It has a complex malt bill and is massively hopped with Citra and Mosaic. In the words of the brewery: “This is a velociraptor in wolf’s clothing”

*Dont forget, we have a varied selection of other Brew York beers on the website too*
