We have a new brewery’s beers gracing our shelves as of this week. Campervan Brewery now have a permanent home in Leith, Edinburgh and have upped their volumes considerably. We’re distributing their cask and keg beers all over the place and we can now offer their bottled beers to you, our lovely website customers! There’s three to choose from: “Mutiny on the Bounty” – a coconut/choc/coffee/vanilla milk stout, “Blond Voyage” – a summery Blonde ale brewed with zesty citrus hops and lemongrass and “Wheat Revenge” a wheat beer brewed with Sorachi Ace hops so there’s a hint of coconut here too, but then conditioned with fresh pineapple for a bit of a twist. All in 330ml bottles so perfect for BBQ season too!
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!
