Indian Summer.

The all new Indian Summer is back next week - hoppier and more golden than last year - but still truly scrumptious! It's being racked off tomorrow so should be in the pubs next week after its matured a little. What with the children back to school, Indian Summer and lots of great Rugby to watch - September is starting to look like a good month for Rugby loving, 'father of two' beer loving brewers!

Our van broke down this week - but beer has still been flowing thanks to friendly neighbours Terry Lifts who have kindly loaned us the use of one of their trucks. So if you see a blue Terry truck around with casks of beer in it - you'll know its Gregg, Andy or Chris doing deliveries! Hopefully normal service will be resumed next week.

Hoppy Birthday

Cant quite believe its just a year ago that we were drinking our very first pint of Best in the Church Mobberley. Thanks for all your support throughout the year - its true to say we couldn't have done it without you!

To celebrate, we  have brewed something special ;  'Hoppy Birthday' is a limited edition of one brew only. Its a 4.5% dry hopped  straw colored bitter.  Get it while you can. First casks go out tomorrow

White Queen : First pull

From the beer engine in the brewery cellar - looks good, tastes... interesting. Tony next door says "Ooh, yeah - I could get pissed on that!" Unfortunately, my taste buds are currently recuperating from a bad cold, so relying on Lee, Andrew, Paul & Claire (and Tony) for opinions. Colin says "Hmm... well it tastes better than it looks." Off to market with this little piggy...

The sap is rising

Brewing our version of a Belgian wheat beer today - rather experimental. This will be our spring seasonal,  name to be announced imminently - in the meantime, our marketing blurb :

"Naturally cloudy, with a fruity, spicy aroma, this is our version of a Belgian wheat beer, offering  low bitterness and low sweetness for a crisp, refreshing taste, and an intriguing whiter shade of pale in the glass."

What a wheeze this tasting note business is. Anyway, the usual spices plus one unusual one, reputedly with aphrodisiac qualities - mayhap to counter the old brewer's droop? Spring is here, the grass is ris'... Should be interesting as another brewer lamented his abject failure with this spice recently. Guesses on a postcard to..
Pump clip is a deviation from the regulars with the now-traditional graphical quirk - look for it on a pump handle near you in a few weeks - more to follow.
