Sometimes the simple things in life are the best. We take Pilsner malt from Germany and combine with three traditional hop varieties – Magnum, Perle and Hallertauer Mittelfruh – to produce a clean, unfiltered, Hop Bitter Lager Beer. 4.8% ABV. 6.5 EBC. 34 IBU.
Running with Sceptres.
A sceptre is something normally reserved for the likes of royalty, but we all carry a sceptre – something that makes us special. For this India Pale Lager we combine Pilsner, Vienna and Caramalts with a huge whack of hops to make what we call a Special Lager Beer. 5.2% ABV. 16 EBC. 38 IBU.
Our take on what we think a traditional farmhouse ale should be – bright, vibrant and refeshing. For this beer we take Pilsner malt and combine with oats to provide a biscuity base, and then overlay with Brewers Gold and Crystal hops, orange peel and coriander to create a citrusy and seemingly hoppy beer. 4.4% ABV. 8 EBC. 22 IBU.
No Rest for Dancers.
A fruity and hoppy red ale. We have taken a blend of malts including Pilsner, Vienna, light and dark crystal malts to achieve a deep red colour. For the hoppy character we have used a trio of Brewers Gold, Chinook and Mosaic hops. Kick off your shoes, this one’s for dancing. 6.2% ABV. 58 EBC. 35 IBU.
The human tendency to seek patterns in random information. The strongest of our core range was inspired by sipping (rather strong) beers and philosophising about life. A Belgian-style Tripel of a simple composition – the palest Pilsner malt, sugar to lighten the body, and some hops to balance it out. 8.8% ABV. 10 EBC. 38 IBU.
Pilsner malt, flaked wheat and oats form the base of this beer. Hopping with Brewers Gold, Savinjski Goldings, and Chinook compliment the Grains of Paradise added late in the boil. A cool fermentation lets all of the ingredients shine – the result: a soft, fruity, fluffy and delicious rendition of a Saison. 6.5% ABV, 9 EBC, 35 IBU.
Running with Spectres.
To create this black beer we have taken a load of malts (Pilsner, Cara, Crystal, Brown, Chocolate and Roast!) and combined with Magnum, Columbus, Chinook and Savinjski Goldings to deliver a hoppy kick. The result is a Special Black Beer: a rich, strong, smooth and hoppy version of a Baltic Porter. 6.8% ABV. 110 EBC. 40 IBU. Available November through February.
