Christmas is on its way and we don’t seem to be any closer to our new venue. Although we’ve completed and submitted all the paperwork we’re still waiting on some approvals so in someway it's relieving that we haven’t moved house yet. Although our new venue would have been a wonderful self Christmas present.
Turns out that the gym and our landlord are having some difficulty working through some council issues. We’ve been assured that January is our month however the Christmas break is going to turn the whole project into a tight squeeze. You see, we need tradesmen on site during the first week back after the holidays and all renovations need to be competed before our brewery begins to arrive in late January.
So we’ve managed to get the plumber in three days before the roller door arrives, which is just in time to have it installed the day before the concreter comes to pour the slab (he needs access via the roller door). This is all two days before the builder comes to start on the kitchen. We don’t know how but we’ve managed to tee it all up so it can work! We’ll give you an update (and hopefully photos) once we’ve teed off and are on the fairway.
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!
