The beer will be a Denali hopped Kölsch IPA which will see its first pour at Peakender 2017 next month! This should be a fantastically refreshing beer, perfect for the summer.
We have taken a tradition Cologne style beer and added the American Denali hop to give the beer a tasty wallop of citrus fruits, well balanced with German malt.

This week we had our friend Ed Cosens, of Reverend and the Makers, over once again to brew a beer with us!
This time, up at Thornbridge Hall we brewed something a little different. The beer of choice was a Thai Pale Ale, this was brewed with Kafir Lime Leaves & lemongrass. With the addition of Goldings hops, this beer is sublimely refreshing with delicious floral notes and at 4.5% this is a sessionable beer perfect for a summers day in the beer garden!
Ed decided to name the beer "Django" after the legendary, late French jazz guitarist Jean "Django" Reinhardt. This follows on from the muscial theme of some of the other beers Ed has brewed with us including Costello.
Django will be avilable at the June Brewery Socials and look out for it at the Thornbridge Taps!
