Batlow Ciderfest

Batlow Ciderfest 2015

You couldn't have asked for a better day or crowd!

Coffee On The Way

We're not going to lie, it was a big effort. We spent the majority of last week finishing and testing our second mobile bar. Printing labels and signs and finishing beer (just in time).

It was all worth it. The weather was amazing! The atmosphere was festive and the beer (and cider) was flowing!

Our Stall

We always look forward to events like Ciderfest and it's not for the reason you may think. Sure we make a little money but, what makes it truly worthwhile is the people. We get to introduce hundreds of people to our beer. We get to spend the day interacting with the people, the reason we make it and WE LOVE IT!

This year we had 8 beers on tap which is a first for us and we launched our crowdfunding efforts, so it really was a day of exciting events.

The day was a great success in the true sense of the word and we look forward to next year!

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.

We hope you’ve read our first post, A Brief History of Coffee, and if you didn’t we suggest you do, coffee’s history is rather rich. We finished with the facts that coffee is the third most popular beverage in the world and the planets second most traded commodity! But how does it get from the plants on the hills in Central America, Africa, the Middle East or Indonesia to your favourite coffeehouse and into your cup?

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.
