Babooshka is our latest dry hopped pale. Matt, our developmental brewer, takes the time to share a bit about the process behind the pint.
So here we set out to brew a beer that is low in ABV and high in flavour. Dextrin malt and oats add body; a generous Mosaic and Ekuanot leaf hops addition on the hot side bring satisfying late hop flavour; while post-fermentation Citra, Mosaic and Idaho 7 pellet additions bring layers of tropical, citrus and stone fruit.
We’ve fermented this beer with S-04 yeast, to provide a crisp and refreshing finish that readies the palette ready for the next sip.
Available in cask only. Its lower ABV makes it the perfect choice for a long afternoon in the pub catching up with friends and family, or the ideal thirst quencher at the end of a brisk late-winter/early-spring walk.
Maris Otter, Low Colour Maris Otter, Munich, Torrefied Wheat, Chocolate, Dextrin, Oats.
Mosaic, Ekuanot (kettle); Citra, Mosaic, Idaho 7 (dry)
Allergens: Malted barley, Wheat, Oats (gluten)

The Pilot Project Commences!
And the Pilot Project commences! We now have a secondary, and much smaller, brew kit which we are using to brew limited edition beers. The aim is to use the freedom the smaller kit gives us to explore and experiment with new brewing processes, techniques, beer styles and ingredients. Join us on our journey! #PilotProject
