Here, on the Paradise Peninsula, in the sleepy town of Hoylake, something is brewing that may challenge and divide the good folk of that coastal idyll in equal measure…
Local beer, lovingly brewed, for local people.
OK. So this is how we work. To a heated liquor bath in our serious nano-brewing kit, we mash in a considered selection of quality barley malts followed by a heady collection of aromatic hops. Then we alchemise flavours and styles with alacrity to produce well-balanced and refreshing beers. Because that’s what we love.
We’ll brew a test batch of 20ltrs and if it sings we’ll brew a 200ltr batch. Once. Then move on to another style. However, if a particular style strikes a chord with our great drinking public, we’ll brew it again, with maybe a few tickles. Because we can’t stop ourselves.
Small batch – it’s the future.
Brewers make wort, yeast make beer.
Our beers are unfiltered and contain live brewers yeast, which settles to leave a slight sediment in the bottle. The yeast helps the beer to continue to mature and develop so that the flavour becomes balanced and harmonious and over a few weeks the natural process of carbonation takes place.
Yeast also acts as a natural preservative helping the beers to continue to improve even after the imposed best before date has passed.
If you like your beer clear then be careful not to disturb the yeast cake when pouring. But hey, it’s harmless (Some science for you: *Brewer’s yeast is a rich source of minerals – particularly selenium; protein; B-complex vitamins and chromium, an essential trace mineral that helps the body maintain normal blood sugar levels*). So go rogue, swirl that last bit of beer and hang convention – drink it cloudy it may do you some good!
But ultimately, remember chums, beer is brewed to be enjoyed responsibly and not necessarily to pontificate over. Just sayin’.
…the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars enjoying the frisson of a limited edition, small-batch beer…”
