Stylin' Brews: Red IPA

Stylin' Brews: Red IPA

November 21, 2018

The Profile

Indian Pale Ales (IPA) are heavy on the hop side. The red IPA hails from the United States and, therefore, they are even hoppier than their father, the English IPA. As a rule of thumb, the IPA has a higher alcohol content than its pale ale lineage, however, for the red IPA, we can also factor in the fact that red ales are also generally brewed stronger than their pale ale counterparts. This makes for a strong beer in a red IPA.

Stylin' Brews: Hefeweizen

Stylin' Brews: Hefeweizen

October 24, 2018

The Profile

Hefeweizen is a straw coloured, usually hazy beer which is very attractive when served in the traditional Bavarian hefeweizen glass in the summer sunshine. Hefeweizens are made with at least 50% wheat in the mash and are not found to be brimming with hops, the flavours mainly come from the yeast instead. You see “Weizen” means wheat (you might remember that from our Dunkelweizen article) and “hefe” means yeast. These, as said, are the main two flavour components of a hefeweizen and the yeast used adds distinct clove and banana notes. Making these beers the perfect, easy drinking beverage in the sunshine.

Doing Your Part For The World By Enjoying Coffee

Doing Your Part For The World By Enjoying Coffee

October 10, 2018

Food and drinks around the world are gaining stickers, labels and little stamps for all sorts of things nowadays; whether it be health reasons, not tested on animals or one of many other reasons. Not all of these things are important or can lead to a benefit for the product, humanity or the planet, however, there are three terms that get associated with coffee that we think are important and worth understanding. These are: Fair Trade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance Certified. Here we’re going to give each of these a little break down so that when you next see them you know why they’re important to your cup of coffee and the world near and far.

Stylin' Brews: Red Ale

Stylin' Brews: Red Ale

September 26, 2018

The Profile

A red ale is a form of pale ale that is categorised by its colour. There’s still debate around the fact of whether or not a red ale is really its own class of ale or whether or not it falls under the umbrella of English bitter. A red ale is categorised by a slight sweetness and tea-like flavours. It has a light hop and toasted malt flavours, making it a well-balanced beer. It is made with a high proportion of pale malts and often contains caramel colouring to give it its signature red hue. It is often that red ales will have a dry finish. These beers are very easy drinking, as our very own Tim Martin will tell you from personal experience!

Takeaway Nonsense

Takeaway Nonsense

August 31, 2018

So you may have noticed that we’re no longer open early in the mornings and that we’re not serving takeaway coffees. We’ve also put our takeaway food services on hold as well. Unfortunately, we’ve had one our neighbours raise concerns with the council about our our takeaway services, saying that these don’t fit inside our business parameters. The council's decision landed in favour of our disgruntled neighbour and, reluctantly, we’ve had to accept their ruling for the time being until we can find a way to rectify this. If you want a little more information on this issue than read on.

Stylin' Brews: Pilsner

Stylin' Brews: Pilsner

August 29, 2018

The Profile

Pilsner is a pale lager and a famous style of beer that has been replicated the world over, although often not to great effect. A true pilsner, from the Czech Republic or Germany, has a medium to full body, is a light golden yellow in colour, has high carbonation and floral hops which give the beer a crisp yet bitter finish. It is most important for a pilsner to be refreshing yet delicate. It should also have a dense fluffy head.

One of the most important aspects of a true pilsner is the soft water used to make it. This is one of the reasons why pilsner still has such a strong link with its hometown of Pilsen; because it’s very hard to recreate the quality of the water found there.

Arabica VS Robusta Beans

Arabica VS Robusta Beans

August 15, 2018

The flavour of coffee, like wine, is affected by the soil, altitude and climate that it is grown in. Also, like wines grapes, the variety of bean used to brew coffees also contribute a lot to the flavours of your cup. Where coffee and wine differ here is that there are thousands of varieties of wine grapes and many different varieties have dedicated followings. With coffee, however, we don’t have this variation in the beans and you might be surprised to hear that there are only two types of beans that we use to produce most the worlds third most popular beverage; arabica and robusta. We are not saying these are the only varieties of coffee bean but they are the only ones used to produce coffee.
