Kees Bubberman (now of Brouwerij Kees) and John de Vries (now of Brouwerij de Molen) joined us originally to brew this smooth and citrusy India Pale Ale, which is fermented with timed additions of Earl Grey tea during fermentation, heavy infused hopping and traditional cask maturing. The result is a citrus fruit aroma, smooth sleek texture, hop notes are brilliantly complimented by bergamot and a light tannic finish.

Wild Beer

We have focussed on one of our favourite hops; Simcoe. Bucking the trend of juicy hazy pales we have created a crisp, dry and light everyday sessionable beer. We love the piney resinous and citrus nature of Simcoe hops which pairs wonderfully with the passionfruit notes from Mosaic.

Steady Rolling Man

Inspired by the ridiculously tasty hoppy beers we fell for, we got brewing our own versions, over and over again, while listening to the blues greats. The heady concoction of old time blues records and juicy American hops transfixed us from the start and the rolling man was born in these sessions! Incredibly soft and delicate with intense tropical fruit hop aromatics and saturation, this is our vision of the perfect pale ale.

The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of American hops are added to the whirlpool giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!

Amarillo, Citra and Ekuanot team up for a triple threat of straight up high-juice and low bitterness from these three heavyweight hops from our stateside brothers.

Kickstart my heart!
