October blog

What a great night we had at the inaugural Crumbs Awards on Sunday, 1st October. Held at the Old Vic in Bristol we were surrounded by the great and good of the food and drink industry in the South West, many of whom were enjoying our beer!

We supplied Golden Bolt for the awards’ evening ceremony and it was fantastic to see lots of people tasting it. There’s nothing quite like watching someone drink a pint of what you’ve worked so hard to create.

Talking of creating beer, we’ve just taken delivery of some new hops! We like to think we’re on the ball, and trying to be ahead of the game. Wai-Iti, Simcoe, Cascade (US &UK, Rakau, Mosaic, Mandarina Bavaria and of course Amarillo are all sitting in the brewhouse waiting to be transformed into next year’s beer…. I can’t wait!

It’s gonna be a good year and the team and I are excitedly thinking about new flavours that we would like to bring you. By the way, we love to hear your ideas too, so do let us know what you think over on Facebook, Twitter (@boxbrew) and Instagram (@boxsteambrewery).

Phew, where has the time gone? We’ve been brewing for almost 15 years.

We’ll never produce factory style beer. Our creative brewers use hop flavours to their full, forever artful in the quite wondrous production of naturally flavoursome beer.

Our roots are firmly in the West Country, where we continue to be inspired by the engineering triumphs of the late great Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
