Stone IPA on tap soon

We will soon have Stone IPA from the USA on tap!

Stone IPA 6,9%

“The IPA That Launched Generations of Hop Fanatics
By definition, an India pale ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale—and we deliver in spades. One of the most well-respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with tropical, citrusy, piney hop flavors and aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.”

Zeitgeist in the Hopinator

We now have BrewDog’s Zeitgeist dark lager in the Hopinator with some Cluster hops!

“The first BrewDog release to break cover in 2017 is a beer perfect for these dark, cold times – Zeitgeist being our interpretation of the classic Czech black lagers and German Schwarzbier that nurse many a European beer fan through to lighter evenings and warmer times.
And it does this through two crucial avenues. Firstly the most important one of all – the malt bill, combining the classic pairing of Pilsner and Munich with the darker grains of Caramalt and Chocolate Malt. Secondly, we have hopped the beer with Cascade and fermented it out to give a dry, rounded mouthfeel to act as a buttress to all of the dark, roasty malt flavour.
As a result, Zeitgeist is a beer layered with flavours such as bitter chocolate, fresh coffee and sweet caramel – with the citrus of the Cascade hops making an appearance on the aftertaste. This beer is a eulogy to the dry and roasty dark lagers of continental Europe, so those American hops yield in support of the deep, lasting bitterness from the darker malt grains.”

Veltins pilsener now on tap!

Brauerei C & A Veltins is a brewery in the west German city of Meschede-Grevenstein that opened as a small pub brewery in 1824 when nobody could foretell that it would become on of the biggest brands in Germany. After all these years it’s still owned by the Veltins family. They use the water from the Sauerland mountain spring that is crystal clear, soft and perfect for beer brewing.

Veltins Pilsener, at 4,8% ABV, is bright shiny gold in colour with a scent of fresh hay and herbs with citrous flavour and a nutty character. Behind the tangy, herbal hop notes, this is quite a delicate, soft beer with a medium-bodied freshness. Fairly dry and bitter, but with a soft malty-sweet backdrop.
