The sun is shining on the Brewery and the warmer air increases the aroma of hops and malts across the yard as we brew the usual favourites, plenty of our Spring beer, Soul Train.
We’ve also created a lovely brew for April, Out In Front. It’s a malty, ruby coloured best bitter, using roasted crystal and chocolate malts for colour and flavour. The addition of Fuggle hops lends it a grassy and pine note prevalent on race courses. As the beer is pitched at the start of the horse racing season we went for hops that could recreate the smells of fresh grass and fences being hit. You can always tell a story with beer!
If that wasn’t enough to keep us busy, we are preparing 92,000 bottles of Derail Ale and Funnel Blower for export to Germany, Belgium and Slovenia. Nice to know what we craft hear will be enjoyed all over Europe.
