As many of you may know we're always hard at work putting in upgrades down at the brewery. We’ve also got another big one on the way so we thought we’d fill you in on all the hard work that has been going on behind the scenes.
As you’ve probably seen, either down at the brewery or on our social media channels, we’ve a lovely, new, shiny 24 tap draft system. 24 taps?! you don’t have that many beers guys!! We know we don’t. Yet… We may do one day in the future though! In the meantime, we’re gonna get them connected and we’ll be pouring all of our own TRBC beers as well as a selection of beers and ciders from around the area. Come down and get a sample flight, sample the fruits of our labours and let us talk you through some of our beers and what goes into them. Like I said, they’re not all ours but we’ve been clued-in by those that supply us with the other ones so there’s no shortage of knowledge here!
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!
