Brewing up a storm – Friendly collaborations
Kayon DIPA – Ancoats coffee & B Spoke Coffee
We love beer and we love coffee, so we teamed up with our friends at Ancoats Coffee and B Spoke to brew this double IPA with a twist. We added Kayon Mountain Coffee to compliment the Centennial, Ekuanot, Simcoa and Mosaic Hops.
This hazy little beauty has a deep amber body, accompanied by a dense tan head. Let’s just say, if you were settling down for the night with a beer in hand, watch out! This punchy little number will keep you out all night.
Thai Wheat - Allotment Vegan Restaurant
As part of Manchester Beer Week we’ve teamed up with Matt Nutter of the Allotment Vegan Restaurant. We’ve co-brewed a refreshing Wheat Beer with some of Matt’s favourite ingredients: Lemongrass, Ginger & Coriander.
This vivacious little character is one of our much loved collaborations. It pours with a golden, straw like body and fluffy white head. The mouth warming ginger starts smooth, then moves to a lemongrass finish.
‘War of’ series – North Riding Brewery
Like all good match makers, in 2016 Jim Cullen the founder of Salford Independent beer festival, Set out to create hoppy creations by pairing us with the lovely guys from North Riding Brewery in Scarborough. What he didn’t know is that we formed an untold friendship with these Yorkshiremen and decided to create a collaboration series. Just because…why not?
This attractively strong, chocolatey Oatmeal Stout has been infused with fresh raspberries. It pours with a dense creamy body, smooth head & leaves you with a touch of raspberry sweetness.
Plum & Liquorice Stout – TicketyBrew
Following the sad demise of TicketyBrew we felt like it was only right to show our appreciation for the weird and wonderful creations that they produced so well. This one may not be a Palma Violet Wheat beer, but we believe it is just as tasty.
After Ticketybrew sadly vacated the craft beer world, we decided not only to join forces, but to brew one of the unusual ideas that Duncan had lined up in his head. We loved this brew so much, it just seemed right to ask Duncan to join the Thirst Class family permanently. So that is what we did.
