Say hello to “Phoenix Gold”

As you’ll have read, we’ve produced our first new beer since the fire and now we’re really excited to introduce you to it! Say “Hello” to our new beer, “Phoenix Gold”!

‘Phoenix Gold’ is a beautifully golden ale with hints of citrus and spice leaving you with a lingering bitterness right through to finish. Brewed using Phoenix hops (British), we’ve turned the problem of our brewhouse fire in to a brand new delicious beer!

Keep checking the Facebook page as there’s going to be another exciting announcement tomorrow!

Beer Day Britain! Say “Cheers!”

Today is Beer Day Britain! The date is significant as it was the day the Magna Carta was signed back in 1215 and in there it stipulated a standard measure across the country for a serving a beer – which incidentally wasn’t a pint, it was the London Quart. Anyway, as that’s where our humble pint started from this is why Beer Day Britain is celebrated on 15th June.

Being beer lovers we are of course getting involved and we’d love to buy you a pint. Head over to our Facebook page for information on how you can get a free pint on us! And don’t forget to say “Cheers!” tonight at 7pm!

A new brew is on it’s way…

Today is super exciting! Not only are we making beer (which despite our last post is “normal” we still always get excited about making it!) – but we’re making a brand NEW beer! Now that is super exciting!

What’s more, it’s the first new beer we’ll have produced since our fire back in January, and as such, we obviously need to make it pretty special! We’re not going to reveal too many details just yet but what I can tell you is that we’re using some hops (British of course!) that we’ve never used before! It’s going to be single hop and will be golden in colour.

This is quite likely to head up a whole new range of beers for us so as ever, we’re putting every care in to making sure it’s going to be another awesome beer. We’ll be posting updates on the Facebook page as it progresses (and adding further images here) and I think we might just run a competition around it too!

Stay tuned!

Normal isn’t so normal…

This new fangled internet-web thing looks like it’s here to stay and never being ones to shy away from trying something new, we decided to get in to this online publishing / blog malarky!

What we do everyday is just what we do – we love it of course, but like anything, when you do it everyday, it becomes normal. Each of our days are pretty episodic, brew days are brew days, racking days are racking days and so on, each day we go through the same processes and it’s all a bit samey! So when we decided to start publishing on our blog we did honestly think, “well, what have we got to talk about?” – but you know what? When we sat down and thought about it, there was actually quite a lot.

We’re blessed in that this industry we operate in is very sociable and full of passionate people – I guess lots of other industries are too but I don’t have any experience of those – so although a lot of what appears to be “normal” to us, is actually really interesting to our fellow beer lovers.

It’s kinda funny what makes us rethink things and see things from a different angle and who’d have thought that writing a blog on what we “just do” everyday would allow us to open up a new perspective on our brewing and operations and reignite a more child like curiosity on what we do!

How about you guys? What is there you do everyday that seems to be “normal” yet perhaps holds elements to be wondered upon and to get curious about? Funny isn’t it what shapes our thinking?
