SANGIOVESE GRAPE WILD FERMENTED SOUR ALE
Wild brewing meets wine-making in this hand-pressed hybrid. Sangiovese grapes crushed into a terracotta Amphora create a naturally fermented grape ale. Blended with golden sour ales, Hybrid Henchman was then aged in red wine barrels for a year. Delicately dry, aromatic and mineral ruch, this is one to savour alongside any fine vintage.

The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
