Pining For the Fjords...

It's finally here! Our insanely tropical collab with top Jorvikian's Brew York. X-Parrot is a silly fruity IPA with an absolute boatload of tropical pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, guava, mango and more!

It's launching next week in both cans and keg, so watch this space for the events and get thee along to give it a blast!

Beers for days!

It's been a busy old month, but we've got a lot to show for it; including not one, but two, count them, TWO brand-spanking new beers to show off. 

Our first is our 2017 Newcastle Beer Fest Battle of The Beers entry, Kaiju Punch. Brewed with a ludicrous amount of Mosaic and Citra, it's a unfined and unfiltered super hoppy IPA. As punchy as the name suggests, it's got a heavy herbal nose and a great fruity taste. 

Our other new beer is the second in our series of collabs with Newcastle Uni's Stu Brew. Named Shovelbeast after we CRUSHED the brewhouse's mash tun emptying challenge, it's a Red Berry Saison with loads and loads of pulped raspberry and cranberry. It's got an immediate raspberry hit as soon it hits the tongue which is rounded out by the tart flavours of cranberry and finishes very dry and spicy with the unique flavours that only saison yeast can provide. 

Both beers are hitting pubs this week so get out and get them tried! Watch this space as well as we've got something very cool to announce in a few weeks!

Magic... The darkest magic. My soul swims in it... Scattered across time, trapped in the world of formlessness...

It's that time again! For February/March we're launching something dark and magical. Inspired by Scandinavia's favourite sweet, Black Magic is a black storm of dark malts, salt and liquorice root flavours. Fortified with oats for a thick and creamy head, expect big blasts of liquorice flavour backed up with lots of malty goodness and the unique tang of salt.

Beats, Beasts, Beer and Tea?

It's a new year and it's time for our first new beer of the year. In what is rapidly becoming a tradition of us, we've gone and released another IPA. This time with oodles of fruity-fresh Simcoe hop and, a first for us, an experimental yeast culture. 

Jungle is a MASSIVE IPA with a powerful nose full of Apricot and Peach vibes and a wicked taste reminiscent of tropical fruits and bagloads of insane hop action. 

We can't wait to see this one hit the bars! 

In other news, our hometown-inspired Earl Grey collab with local tea genies and all-rounds legends: the Quilliam Bros is back on bars. With a whole new recipe and an even fruiter blend of that amazing loose leaf tea, it's smelling and tasting amazing. 

It's All Coming Together!

It's a new year and the first steps towards getting our tap room up and running are underway!

Observe the mystery, the marvel and the wonder as we cut a bar top into shape and fit it on the bar.  Experience trepidation as you perch on the edge of your seat as ask yourself the hard questions: 'will it all fit together?', 'Did Tom cut his thumb off with a circular saw?' and many more!

On a serious note, we're steaming ahead with our tap room, we've got an arch full of the finest reclaimed furniture and pallet based surfaces known to man. When we're not brewing, we're working up a veritable sweat, painting and cleaning to make our brewery all swanky and shiny for when we welcome our first drinkers to our bar. 

I don't believe in setting launch dates this early on (they'll definitely catch us out if we do) so all I'll say for now is that we're working our hardest and would to love open our doors to all of you by March.
