Patience has never been a quality of ours and since we're brewing beer in our micro brewery and only waiting on one more certificate to actually trade we figure its close enough. Close enough for what? you ask. Close enough to crack open our saved beer, a beer from our past, a beer we have saved for 5 years, a beer that will probably be awful!
When we first started this dream we had to start from the begining, the begining being home brew. So we made a batch (which became hundreds of batches). We saved one bottle in my shed and told ourselves that when we made it, when we had our brewery we would celebrate drink it. So after five years in storage and at least one move. Its time! Well for a small celebration
Please note: This video was shot in my shed, a shed that has been trashed and pillaged to create a micro brewery. This premises does not represent our brewery in anyway (just saying) All good celebrations happen in a shed!
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!
