News of the Brews - March 2017
Those of you who have tried the fantastic Kirkstall Dissolution IPA (6%) will be pleased to hear that they have finally got their Three Swords Extra Pale Ale (4.7%) into cans. Three Swords is an extra pale ale, with a decent hoppy poke in the finish.
After a bit of an absence, we’ve listed some new specials from Siren Craft Brew. Bourbon Coffee Broken Dream (6.5%) is made with barrel-aged coffee beans, which adds a pleasing subtlety to the bourbon character. Pompelmocello (6% grapefruit sour IPA) returns, as does Calypso (4% dry-hopped Berliner weisse). A new beer from them goes heavy on the hops – Hop Candy (9.2% DIPA) is a riot.
Cloudwater seem to be ready to ramp up packaging of their new 44cl cans, so in stock currently we have Mittelfruh Helles (5.2%), IPL Vic Secret Comet (6.2%), with a Pale Ale (3.5%) arriving shortly (available Thursday 9th March)
Wylam and Northern Monk have collaborated on a Viking-inspired beer. Brodirblod (6% rye and juniper ale) is an earthy, gently spiced beer, just the thing to herald the arrival of spring (and let’s hope spring hurries itself up a bit, eh?)
Vocation Brewery have expanded their range, with the addition of Yakima Pilsner (5.5% dry-hopped pilsner) alongside their DIPA Smash & Grab (8.5%). Dirty Pilsner (6.5% unfiltered dry-hopped lager), Cloak & Dagger (5.9% oatmeal stout) and Oak & Dagger (7.5% oak-aged oatmeal stout) complete the current range.
Fierce Beer (rated best new Scottish brewery at the 2017 Ratebeer awards, folks!) have added a few new lines to their range of off-centred beers. Moose Mousse (4.5% chocolate milk stout), Citrus Tart (4.5% citrus kettle sour) and Tropical Tart (4.5% tropical fruit kettle sour).
Beers from Elusive Brewing are like buses – you wait ages, then 4 come along at once. Ultrahops (4.9% pale ale with Vienna malt, and Ultra and TnT hops), Level Up: Level 5 (US red ale with Summer & Simcoe hops), 2-UP (8.5% barley wine collab with Siren Craft Brew) and Sphere of Destiny (4.4% session ale “intensely hopped with Mosaic hops”, it says here)
AND FINALLY Tempest Brewing have unleashed a new beer on the unsuspecting world. Nelson Sauvvy is a 5.4% India Pale Lager with Nelson Sauvin hops. Alongside the hop-heavy core range currently, we also have Double Shuck (11% imperial oyster stout) and Mexicake (11% imperial stout with cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa and chilli, which I think makes it the first Aztec-style imperial stout)
