October Update 2019
Well September was exciting - we had a lot of fun events and sold a lot of beer! October is looking just as action packed so here's some news about what's afoot...
Petersgate Tap / IMBC Beer City - Thirst Class Tap Takeover - 3rd October
We've been pals with Alan & Chris, founders of the Petersgate Tap, since before they even thought about opening a bar! On Thursday 3rd October as part of IMBC Beer City, we'll be heading over for a full Tap Takeover. There will be 7 of our beers on the bar and we'll be along for the occasion to share a beer and a chat.
Indy Man Beer Con - Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th October
Once again we're delighted to have been invited to attend this year's Independent Manchester Beer Convention at the beautiful Victoria Baths.
It's one of the highlights of the beer calendar and we'll be there on Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th October pouring our beers.
If you're coming on either of those days be sure to drop by for a chat and a beer! We'll be bringing these fantastic beers along:
Penny Black IPA (5.9%)
Mosaic Pale Ale (4.7%)
New Zealand Pale Ale (4.4%)
Farmhouse In Your Soul - Saison (5.1%)
Double Bluff - Double Black IPA (9%)
Baltic Porter (8.7%)
Prairie Schooner Taphouse - 5th Birthday & Pony Express Pale Launch - 9th October
The Prairie Schooner Taphouse in Urmston turns 5 in October and we've brewed a special beer with them to celebrate. Pony Express Pale is a 4.5% Pale Ale. We've used Ahtanum, Chinook and Cascade hops and a touch of wheat as a nod to the PST's Kansas roots.
On 9th October we'll be at the PST to launch the beer on both cask and keg. There will also be an exclusive gin launching on the same night and we'll be trying them both together in a Hop Collins - a groovy gin and beer cocktail!
Independent Salford Beer Festival 6 - Thursday 31st October - Saturday 2nd November 2019
At the end of the month we'll be once again attending the marvellous Independent Salford Beer Festival (#ISBF6). We'll be bringing two fabulous brand new beers with us.
The first is a keg beer we've just brewed with our good friends at Rivington Brewing Co. and it's a 5%(ish) Gooseberry & Peppercorn Saison. It's already tasting fantastically tart!
The second beer is being brewed this week and will be a banging fruity, hazy pale with loads of hops we've not used before. It'll be around 5.5% and we're really excited about it!
New Beer News
We launched a couple of new beers last month which are both available in our online shop.
Imperial Petersgate Porter is a 9% version of Petersgate Porter brewed with The Petersgate Tap for their 3rd birthday. It was brewed back in March so has a few months age on it and it's tasting fantastic.
Double Bluff is also 9% and is the next release in our "Double" series of big IPAs. This time we opted for a Double Black IPA and it tastes amazing. We've used loads of Chinook, Galena, El Dorado, Ekuanot and Simcoe hops in both the boil and dry hop to create this great roasty fruity beer!
Well, that's about it folks. We've been focusing a lot of time and effort on keeping up with demand for our core range beers - but we're hoping to get a few more specials out in the coming months. We'll be back with more brewery news in November. Until then, keep drinking our beers!
