The Blend 2017
BARREL AGED SOUR
The Blend 2017, is a limited release, the third edition of an annual series. 2017's summer blend is very light and spritzy with bundles of juicy fruit character from the old fruited barrels and funky yeast strains. This beatifully balances the sour punch occuring from both fermentation and maturation developing in barrel.
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)
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!
