Impending Liquid Anarchy: Some upcoming beers
Consider this like a series of mini movie trailers. Except they are not for movies, they are for upcoming BrewDog beers. These beers are currently either fledgling concepts, fermenting away in our tanks, ageing in oak barrels or rattling along our bottling line. If you are lucky, they will soon be in your beer glass and subsequently your mouth.
Recipe Development: How to Disappear Completely
New adverntures in imperial milds. We are currently developing the recipe for this beer and intend to brew it next week. Based on a small batch we brewed back in 2009 and named after my (James) favourite Radiohead song. The beer will be a modest 2.8%, reasonably dark in colour with low bitterness and an absolute avalanche of dry hops.
Dispatch Hall: Abstrakt AB14
AB:14 is the latest release in our Abstrakt series and is an oak aged Imperial Weizenbock. Expect a big, bold mouth-feel backed by some powerful banana, caramel, toffee, vanilla and spicy hits woven together with some classic weizen notes. All balanced by an eclectic yet bizarrely balanced variety of hops from America (Simcoe) the Czech (Saaz) and the UK (Bramling Cross).
The beer is at 10.2% ABV and has been aged on toasted French oak chips. As close to bannoffee pie as a beer can taste. Seriously.
This beer was the brainchild of our German Lead Brewer Franz.
FV 106: Barley Wine
Our first foray into the embittered, gigantic world of barley wines for a few years. This one is loaded with our favourite American hops meaning the beers blurs the distinction between a giant beast of a malty barley wine and a huge imperial india pale ale. This beer is destined to be a 12% ABV monster that will develop amazingly well in the bottle.
As of yet this big bad wolf of an American Barley Wine remains unnamed. Please leave your name suggestions in the comments box below.
Brewed in collaboration with Soren from New Zealand's stellar 8-Wired brewery, this is an imperial pilsner featuring two of our favourite New Zealand hops: Nelson Sauvin and Motueka. Sitting at a dangerously drinkable 7.1% ABV there's a touch of munich malt which gives this beer that little extra caramel biscuit bite to compliment the lip smackingly tropical hops. Expect an all out NZ hoppy riot.
FV 406: Punk IPA
Punk IPA. Our flagship beer and it is currently in 6 of our tanks at the moment. With our new brew-house, our hop cannon and our centrifuge now dialled in Punk IPA is tasting as good as it ever has. The only problem we have is trying to make enough of this beer! Expect sparkling tropical hoppiness, a riot of fruitiness, a satisfying biscuit malt base and a re-assuringly bitter bite.
This alluring enigma continues to enchant us all. Who is Mette-Marit?
Transfering from oak into tank: Mix Tape
Almost exactly like the mix tapes you used to make when you were 13 to impress the boy or girl you were just a tiny bit too shy to confess your undying love to. Just with a little less angst and a lot more alcohol. Mix tape is a blend of 2 huge oak aged IPAs. 50% of the beer is an amped up, hopped up Belgian Tripel which has been aged in single grain scotch whisky casks for almost 2 years. The other 50% is Triple India Pale Ale which has also been aged in Scotch whisky barrels for close to 2 years. This beer is inspired by the Belgian Monastic brewing tradition and its centuries of heritage, hopped up, amped up with American new wave craft brewing and everything that rocks about Scotch whisky and oak ageing.
Oh and resident artist & long time friend Johanna Basford is designing the artwork for this beer so expect something very special here.

Mix tape sounds great. Perhaps it would be interesting to also sell the two individual IPAs so you can see what they bring to the blend?rdoyle26.07.2013
- Call it 'The 8th Coallition'. *beer geek fact* - Barley wine became popular in the 18th and 19th centures within the British upper classes because, being consistently at war with France, claret was frowned upon. The coalitions were formed to fight against France (a mixture of allies) and only went up to 7... Welcome to the 8th coallition!

- All looks great. I'm hoping to keep the number of orders to a minimum (to save on delivery costs) - is there any way of finding out roughly when the beers (that are bottled or near bottling) will be released. Don't want to miss out on those glasses either (although I did just order two from America!) Chris.email@example.com
