Fyne Ales On Tour: BAF! Borefts After Festival

by Iain Smith

Earlier this year we invited the team from Dutch brewing heroes, Kaapse, to curate one part of the Brewers’ Bar at FyneFest 2017 and, let’s be honest, they knocked it out of the park by bringing us some incredible beers from their homeland.

We didn’t think we could be any more grateful to Tsjomme and his team, but then he went and invited us to BAF 2017!

Borefts After Festival 2017!

Every year, our friends at De Molen host Borefts, a huge crazy two-day festival of amazing beer with an annually rotating line-up of breweries from around Europe. The festival is so big, and draws so many beer enthusiasts to the Netherlands, that two days isn’t enough for most and Kaapse are charged with keeping the party going with an after-festival.

We’re super excited to be representing the UK at this year’s BAF alongside some of our favourite breweries from the continent. Come and see us in Rotterdam and enjoy one of the beers we’ve shipping across!

New Brew News: Summer Dusk (Summer Sessions)

by Iain Smith

September. The nights get longer, the air turns colder, the trees bid farewell to their leaves and sunny days already seem like a distant memory. Summer has departed and it’s time to welcome the embrace of Autumn, but not without one final glimpse of sunshine – introducing Summer Dusk, the final cask special in this year’s Summer Sessions series.

Summer Dusk is the third beer in our trio of sessionable ales packed full of hop flavours, sitting alongside Summer Dawn and Summer Skies at a perfectly sip-able 3.5%. With a slightly fuller body than its predecessor, Summer Skies, thanks to the addition of a touch of amber malt, Summer Dusk is designed for mellow evenings flicking through holiday photos and dreaming about adventures in the sunshine to come.

A combination of three aroma hops share the billing on Summer Dusk’s brew sheet – the floral bitterness of Centennial and stone-fruit punch of Eureka supporting Simcoe’s piney, citrus character for a reenergising flavour profile.

Summer Dusk has been rolling out of the brewery for a week or so already, so expect to see it very, very soon in your local and be sure to catch it before the sun sets on our Summer Sessions series for 2017.

Cheers!

New Brew News: To The Hilt

by Iain Smith

Unsheathing this week, a brand new, deadly IPA 6.1% that doesn’t hold back in flavour or body – To The Hilt!

Brewed using heaps of Scottish raw wheat and flaked oats, on the first taste, our new keg-exclusive IPA offers a solid, smooth mouthfeel that coats the tongue with the delicious hop flavours. With the complex malt base comes a degree of haziness – but don’t be fooled into thinking To The Hilt is in anyway dull.

Hop-wise, it’s a double-edged sword of impact flavours; at the point, the bright, fruity characters of Citra and Motueka lead the charge with slashes of citrus and tropical fruit, before Sorachi Ace runs through the fruitiness with its devastatingly refreshing, spicy, herbal, bitter sharpness.

To The Hilt will be popping up in your local soon and is pouring in the Fyne Ales tap right now. Join us in putting boring beer to the sword with To The Hilt.

Cheers!
