We love a good Lager and Helles is one of our favourite styles. And when we think of Modern British Lager brewers there are only a handful, of which Bristol’s Lost and Grounded are most certainly one. When we heard they were adding a Helles to their range we got very excited! A classic crisp, dry thirst-quencher at 4.4% we can see this becoming a regular in our fridge.
Alongside the Helles this week we have additions of Running With Sceptres their India Pale Lager, Wanna Go To The Sun Pale Ale and Sunset People Pale Ale.
A couple from Polly’s Brew Co this week, Defending Backbeat a Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic IPA. Yearn and Fall a 5.5% Pale Ale that brings a swag bag of juicy citrus notes, along with super soft melon.
Another new Brewer in the BG fridges this week is Abyss Brewing from Sussex. Both Super Pale and Tropical Thunder do exactly what is says on the tin. Drink them.
Cloudwater have recently been teaming up with smaller independent brewers to support and produce beers that are only to be sold in indie shops like us! We’ve got a small amount of their collabs with Squark and Wild Horse. Both IPA’s on the 6.5% sweet spot, Rainpie with Squawk uses Cloudwater house yeast and is like sipping freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice with pops of aromatic grapefruit feel, passion fruit and pine. Magic Hour with Wild Horse is a modern interpretation of a West Coast IPA featuring Simcoe, Idaho 7 and Chinook hops.
Last up for new beers this week is a top up of the ever smashable Pintle from Burnt Mill and the single hopped IPA, Mosaic Fog.
