News of the Brews - July 2015

We’re really excited about this new listing. Vocation Brewery haven’t been in action very long, but they’ve hit the ground running, and the two beers we have from them currently are both excellent. Heart & Soul (4.4% session IPA) and Pride & Joy (5.3% American pale ale) are the opening two beers from a range of four. As a calling card, these look and taste great.

This year’s collab from Wild Beer Co and Beavertown Brewery has just hit the warehouse. Blubus Maximus (5.5%, 75cl only) is gently tart fruit beer, subtly enhance with bay leaves and ton of blueberries. That’s not a figure of speech – it was literally a ton. Also just arrived is their summer seasonal Cool As A Cucumber (2.9% cucumber saison)

Continuing the West Country collab theme, Arbor Ales have a brace of collabs in their current range. First, a wonderfully aromatic red ale with Italian craft brewery Mezzo Passo. Basta Rosse (5.5%) is chock full of delicious Mosaic and Cascade hops. And secondly, Bonsai (6.5%) is a collab IPA with Welsh urchins Tiny Rebel.

Cloudwater Brewery have upped their output substantially, so we hope to feature their beers as a permanent listing, subject to brewery supply. We currently have IPA (6.8%), Session IPA (4.5%), Lager (5.5%) and Simcoe Hopfenweisse (6%).

A pallet from Siren Craft Brew has yielded 4 (count ‘em!) collab specials. Mum’s The Word (5.5%), a cherry and chipotle milk porter, is a collab with Arizona Wilderness Brewing. Uncle Zester (8.5%) a sour-citrus braggot (a mead-beer hybrid – lots of honey here) is a collab with B. Nektar of Ferndale Michigan. Quadrophenia (9.3%), a quadruppel-style dark ale is a collab with Jackie O Brewery of Athens Ohio. And closer to home, Mrs Brown (9%) is a bourbon-aged imperial brown ale with maple syrup and pecans, brewed in collab with Huddersfield’s very own Magic Rock Brewing.

Pressure Drop have added a new IPA to their range. ENZ (7.1%) is a south pacific IPA, heavy with New Zealand hops. Also back in stock is their summer witbier Wallbanger (4.7%), Pale Fire (4.8%), Bosko Absoluto (9%), Wu Gang Chops The Tree (3.8%) and Street Porter (6.5%).

On the American front, we currently have stocks of Odell Runoff Red IPA (6.5%), shortly to be joined (w/c 29th June) by their IPA (7%), summer seasonal St Lupulin (6.5%), Loose Leaf (4.5%), and Cutthroat Porter (4.8%). Summer beers from Brooklyn and Anchor are also currently in stock.

Weird Beard Brew Co have just released Upside To A Down Day (5.5%), a breakfast black IPA, and we currently have stocks of their always-popular Little Things That Kill (3.9%), Faceless Spreadsheet Ninja (5.5%), Hive Mind (5.6%) and Dark Hopfler (2.5%), as well as their extensive core range.

Ilkley Brewery have carried out a bit of light rebranding to their Mary Jane IPA. This has been repackaged in 33cl bottles, in packs of 12, and shall henceforth be known as Mary Jane Export (6%).
