Brewery News from Welbeck Abbey
We have brewed our first KEG LAGER! It’s called PIVO and drinks at 4.8% ABV. Crafted using Polish ‘Lubelski’ and Czech ‘Amethyst’ hops the flavour profile is completely different to that of the more main-stream lager brands. The hops we have chosen impart a subtle balance of earthy, herbal notes whilst providing a hint of citrus and spice to round things off. Available now! We have ovular and circular font badges so they should fit on any font. The kegs are one-way, 30L ‘ecokegs’, the product is ‘bright’ and a pale lager. We’re really excited about this so welcome any criticism you can offer be it good or bad news- we want to hear it!
Our First Bar:
Big news! We’re currently planning the opening of our first bar. It is situated on Ecclesall Road in Sheffield and will be called Portland House. We’ve drafted in Tom Purcell (formerly of the University Arms) as General Manager; things are coming along nicely so watch this space for more developments!
Tan Gallops 4.6% American style IPA. This ale honours Welbeck’s racehorse pedigree and the famous ‘Tan Gallops’ training run. Big and full of American hops this beer promises pine, spice and all things nice! Four different American hops have gone into this ale which will have a good citrus kick and fruit flavour to back up the pine and spice notes.
Strath Royal 4.2% English Pale Ale. Another horsey beer! This time celebrating one of Welbeck’s most famous Derby winners. English ‘Bramling Cross’ hops give this EPA a lovely blackcurrant fruit note yet it’s perfectly balanced by herbal tones and a little spice. Dry to the last sip with great bitterness.
Henrietta Grande 4.0% Delicate Golden Ale. Henrietta Grande is a punchier version of our bestseller- Henrietta. Think grassy, slightly floral and golden with a hint of orange. Very quaffable!
