We love a collab here at Castle Rock. And, right now, they’re coming in thick and fast!

Recently, we have been collaborating with some really amazing breweries so here’s the low down on what’s coming up. All these beer will launch at the Robin Hood Beer and Cider Festival next month, so be sure to come along to our stand and give them a try.

1. Siren Brewery

We were over at Siren HQ for this one, which was a load of fun. We even pulled together a little video to show you a bit more about how it went down!

This one is going to be a California Pale Ale, dry hopped with Eldorado and Azacca. Given Siren’s back catalogue, it’s bound to be a delicious beer!

2. Ossett Brewery

Our second collab is with beer heroes, Ossett. Last time we brewed up the ridiculously popular, ‘Easy as Pie’, a summery 5.9% vegan IPA, bursting with Citra and Nelson Sauvin. That one flew out, so we thought it was only right to bring them back.

This time it’s a different journey into the world of extra special bitters with ‘Forget Me Notts’. This 5.3% ESB is bound to be interesting and is definitely one to check out at the festival!

3. Abbeydale

Last, but in no way least, it’s our collab with local-ish legends, Abbeydale. This crew have been brewing up some amazing goods recently (and forever!). As part of our return collab off the back of ‘Menelaus’, we bring you ‘Agamemnon’. A 5.6% hazy IPA that promises moreish lemon and lime notes from a tasty hop bill of Motueka and Wai-Iti.

We can’t wait for you to try this one.


Finally, we will also be showcasing a *bonus* collab with the 2023 Hop Idol competition winners, Enkelmouse, which will be pouring on our bar at the festival too. Visit our bar at the festival to try it on keg and cask and let us know your favourite!
