Our online shop is flush with collaborative creations right now. Some are hot off the press and a couple are brand new second batches, just tweaked slightly from the sold out first brews. Here are just a few of the beers we have available right now to get the juices flowing…
Fred in London – 11% Strong Blonde Ale (Collaboration with Hair of the Dog)
Alan from Hair of the Dog is one of our brewing heroes, so we were very excited to have him over to brew with us. This is a British rendition of one of his most famous beers, ‘Fred’, originally brewed in honour of Fred Eckhart – a craft beer journalist who resided in Portland, Oregon. It’s made with aromatic and rye malts and includes hop varieties from around the world.
Cerealist Manifesto – 9% Imperial Stout with Cinnamon Toast Crunch – Collaboration with Slim Pickens
We’ve known Todd from Slim Pickens for many years now, so have just been waiting for a good excuse to get him over for a brew. This beer is accurately described as a milk chocolate cinnamon imperial stout, with a car load of actual Cinnamon Toast Crunch shipped over from Florida! Sweet, sweet cerealism.
Draugen – 11.1% Imperial Smoked Porter with Dugges
The inspiration for this dark and mysterious collaboration with Dugges is an old Gothenburg Porter; our recipe is loosely based on historical malt bills. There’s also a modern touch, with a hint of peated malt and a nice alcohol backbone to really layer up the roasty flavours. In Scandinavian folklore, Draugen is the ghost of a sailor, now often associated with anything dark or mysterious about the sea.
Hard Rollin’ – 7% India Pale Ale – Collaboration with Dry & Bitter
The name for our collaboration with Dry & Bitter stems from our mutual love of travel and oats! We’ve used both rolled and malted oats in the grist here, along with lactose for a nice creamy body. There’s a hefty dry hop of Ekuanot, Hallertau Blanc and Mandarina for gorgeous dank and fruity aromas.
I Love You Honey Bunny – 6.3% Honey Smoothie IPA – Collaboration with Other Half Brewing
Following on from Ten Dollar Shake and Comfortable Silence; I Love You Honey Bunny is a smoothie with a plot twist. We had some assistance from Brooklyn’s Other Half this time out, and instead of fruit additions, included some 200kg of pure blossom honey! We’ve also stepped up to 50% oats in the grist, making the body even thicker and smoother than its predecessors.
Double Iced Latte – 7.2% Coffee & Cream IPA – Collaboration with Casita
We welcomed our former Head Brewer Ryan back to the brewery for this collaboration with his own brand – Casita Cerveceria. The idea behind Double Iced Latte was to create something with the creaminess of a latte in combination with the vibrancy of an IPA. The coffee used here is a Kenya Thunguri, sweet roasted for a beautifully rich and full flavour, supplied by our local roaster Tamp Culture.
Metafiction – 5% Hoppy Pils – Collaboration with Modern Times Brewing
With Modern Times over in the UK for festival season, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to sneak a brew in! Metafiction uses a healthy proportion of both malted wheat and wheat flakes, along with Loral, Ella and Mandarina Bavaria hops. We’ve finished with a touch of lime zest for an extra spark.
