4 Degrees of Separation

4 Degrees of Separation

Collaboration time again here at Abbeydale – and this time it was a particularly special one for us as it meant a reunion day in the brewhouse too!

In our first EVER four-way collab, three guys who spent time at Abbeydale earlier in their careers returned for one day only… Dave Kerr from Northern Monk, Richard Morley from Magic Rock, and Sam Lee from Siren all back in town, teaming up with our very own Jamie Memmott to create a hop forward, super juicy IPA that’s bound to knock your socks off.

We’ve got a pretty damn extensive hop store here, and the guys had free reign over the shelves. They’ve gone for four absolute powerhouses of the humulus lupulus world – Nelson Sauvin taking centre stage, backed up by Amarillo, Cascade and Galaxy, to provide a massive hit of gooseberry and grapefruit flavours with floral notes, passion fruit and orange lingering on the palate.

It was a great day having the old gang back together, and definitely an eventful brewday (particularly as Sam brought us all some of Siren’s new release Bourbon Milkshake, an 11% milk stout, to try, there’s probably a good reason why this isn’t described as a breakfast beverage) with everyone pitching in and Morley up to his usual tricks of trying to fix everything (even when it wasn’t necessarily broken…) Speaking of pitching, our house yeast has been replaced in this brew by US-05, which accidentally ended up on a van having a little tour around Sheffield shortly before it was needed in the beer! Thankfully our driver brought it back just in the nick of time and it’s now happily fermenting away.

We are mega excited to find out how this beer, named "4 Degrees of Separation", turns out! Keep your eyes peeled for details of where this will available soon… we have a feeling it won’t be around for long!

Brewers Emporium launch night!

Brewers Emporium launch night!

Please join us at the Devonshire Cat next Thursday 16th March any time from 5pm to celebrate the launch of our fantastic new range as part of Sheffield Beer Week! The full range will be available across cask and keg. Open until 2am!

The Brewers Emporium range is a constantly rotating and evolving series of beers, where our brilliant brewers have been given free reign to select unusual and interesting ingredients to create exciting recipes for your drinking delights. The new beers will sit alongside existing core keg beer Heathen, an American style pale ale which is likely to be a familiar sight to many of you! Look out for Voyager IPA, Salvation stout, Reaper cereal (killer) beer and more!

Also being released under the Brewers Emporium banner is something we are all VERY excited about… our Funk Dungeon project, where we intend to explore barrel ageing, souring, and mixed fermentation beers. You can now follow the Funk Dungeon on Twitter @AbbeydaleFunk – look us up!

The artwork for the Brewers Emporium range has been created by artist James Murphy, who started working with us in 2016, beginning with the distinctive Heathen branding that has successfully launched our new and exciting craft beer range. James’ original and detailed work for the ever-expanding new range will allow each beer to stand out on bars and beer shelves across the country, with each beer represented in James’ characteristic, hand-drawn style.  An exhibition of James’ artwork will accompany the beer at our launch event next week, so come on down for what promises to be a brilliant evening!
