As usual it has been a busy time at the brewery.
We are on the trail of a couple of potential premises for the brewery (we outgrew our current home probably three years ago), so hopefully something will happen in the near future and we can get set up and operating using all the fermenters and tanks that are currently lying on their side in storage.
One exciting new development for us is that we have filled a couple of ex-wine barrels with Vicars' Vice and will barrel-age them for the next year or so. Should be pretty interesting after that amount of time. [Photo is our guest German brewer, Christian, filling one of the barrels]
We have a couple of new beers either avaialble or in progress. Firstly, Singletrack IPA is our single hop IPA using the same recipe as Galaxy IPA but with a different hop - this time it is New Zealand grown Orbit hops. Fermenting as we speak is what is tentatively named Black Forest, our colab brew with Christan. It is a Chocolate Cherry Porter, and we can't wait to get into it.
