Collaboration Brews!



Collaboration Brews We’re pleased to announce our first series of collaboration brews…

We were introduced to the guys at Northern Monk via Twitter…via Maggie, Beer Sommelier at Beer Hawk, the online bottled beer shop….at Birmingham Beer Bash…convoluted I know!  We trashed around some ideas between us and we thought New Year 2015 would be good for both of us…   So a Chocolate Chipotle Porter with a little rye spiciness will be born in the new year…. Fire Monk.

Our next collaboration sees us working closely with the incredibly collaborative and friendly hosts from Norwich – Redwell Brewing.  We met Redwell again via an introduction on Twitter from one of our mutual fans, Nate.

We travelled to Norwich across the world it seems from Cornwall – 7 1/2 hours driving(!!) for Norwich Sound & Vision – Craft Beer Festival.  Patrick, Amy and the gang from Redwell were great hosts taking us around their own (and others) craft beer bars in the city.  On the Friday we travelled over to Redwell HQ to plan out the brew – a Hopped Bock.  David, Head Brewer from Redwell suggested rare German Mandarina hops to add some tangerine quality to the bock.  This will be available in cask and keg when brewed.

We can’t wait for both collabs.
