News of the Brews!
By beerrevhay, Nov 11 2015 02:06PM
This week, for the first time, the brews news comes from the Beer Revolution website. We’ll still be using our Facebook and Twitter feed, of course, but blogs, event news and fresh bottled beer arrivals will be found here from now on.
Hit us up on the usual social media channels for updates, or drop us a line and we’ll add you to our mailing list.
Getting the website up and running means we’ve been neglecting News of the Brews, but the upside is there’s a load of fresh stock in, including some absolute corkers, rareties and stunning Welsh craft beer.
Here’s the lowdown:
Up and coming Welsh brewery Mad Dog have unleashed a whole new range of bottles - and we are their exclusive online seller. Find them all here. Highlights for us are Submissible Anarchy, a wonderful wintery IPA laced with juniper, and the ever-dependable All Day granola stout.
We have a fresh offering from Brewdog, their German-style Altbier, Candy Kaiser. It’s a caramelly, bonfire toffee kinda brew with a big focus on the malt. Perfect for this time of year if you’re the kind of beer lover whose tastes change with the seasons.
Speaking of which, on draught we currently have In the Pines from Bristol’s finest, Wiper and True. It’s a lovely, bitter-sweet and chewy amber that is incredibly moreish. Come and get some before we do the keg in ourselves!
From Northumberland’s Wylam we have a their hopped-up pale, Remain in Light, a colossus of simcoe, centennial, citra and chinook. It’s the first time this brewery has appeared on our shelves.
Cloudwater are back with a new range suited to the darker, winter months. We’ve got their IPA, porter and delicious red ale on the shelves, as well as online.
As you know, we love beers that push boundaries and to that end we’ve got some beery weirdness from Northern Alchemy - a grapefruit and rosemary sour and also a coffee and orange oatmeal pale.
New in from US-stalwarts Founders is their mighty fine Breakfast Stout. We sampled this at Manchester’s Port Street Beer House earlier this year and it got a big tick!
Staying with stouts, we have a cracker - Yellow Belly. This is a collab brew between Buxton and Sweden’s Omnipollo. It’s an 11% peanut butter and biscuit imperial stout, one whiff of this heavenly brew and you know it’s going to be amazing - it does not disappoint. Stocks are very limited on this one and it’s limited to one per customer. It’s not available online from us now - sorry.
The canned craft beer revolution continues, with Huddersfield’s Magic Rock throwing their hat in the ring - and what a job they’ve done. The new cans look stunning. Cannonball IPA, Grapefruit Highwire pale ale and their Salty Kiss gooseberry gose are all online and on the shelves right now!
We’ve expanded the Wild Weather Ales line-up to include their Early Grey IPA, Storm in a Teacup, as well as their rye IPA Riders on the Storm.
From Germany’s Schlenkerla brewery we have their classic Rauchbier Marzen, a dark smoke beer with a big emphasis on the smoke. This is a love it or hate it beer. It gets an impressive 97% on Ratebeer so rest assured it’s quality.
We’ve also got new stuffs from Wild Beer - their everyday pale ale, Bibble, gets a canned release and Shnoodlepip brings the weird in the form of a rich and incredibly full-bodied sour flavoured with pink peppercorns and hibiscus. If that doesn’t sound like a Christmas craft beer, we don’t know what does!
Finally, on the cider front, we're thrilled to have the award-winning Ty Gwyn making their debut on our shelves. We have all three iterations of their cider in stock. It's not just for summer!
Remember we are always changing and refreshing our stock. If we've listed something here that you can't find on the website, get in touch and we'll sort something out. Keep checking back - there'll always be something new.
