Goodbye January! It’s the time of year we take a breath, and have a few days off. We enjoyed watching England storm through the rugby at the weekend – over a few pints of Shuggy Boat exported to London for the occasion.
We’ve been busy brewing to replenish stocks after the Christmas madness and some wonderful specials are coming your way – a Saison called Biscay and new dry hop project beer called Pilgrim and our strong beer Fortification.This means the Fortified series will feature later in the year. If you’re not familiar with these blended beers, you’re in for a treat and can read all about it here.
