One of two new Beavertown beers on our pumps, Gamma Ray, has a concept to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of whole leaf American hops are added in ever increasing numbers at the end of the boil giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!
The other is Neck Oil. An every day, all day, easy drinking, go to IPA. This started life as a home-brew. A beer that you know you can pick up and appreciate or simply get it down ya neck. Extra pale base malts are used to keep it crisp and give the hops a great platform to dance on. Masses of late hop additions throughout the last 20 minutes of the boil and a huge dose of dry hops make this a brilliantly ‘easy’ IPA
Lagunitas DayTime Session IPA, captures a bitter citrus along with a strong initial herbaceous quality that is unexpected, intriguing and speaks to the hops. The flavour isn’t overly prolonged, meaning that it remains quaffable for those hot days when you just want to wet your lips. A great one for lager drinkers looking to break into IPAs
