First few new arrivals we’ve had this week aren’t technically new arrivals, although we haven’t had them in the stores for around 9 months because they’re some great seasonal beers! From The Kernel we’ve got the return of their London Brick, a red rye ale whose malt provides a lovely warmth that is offset by a sharp bitterness from the hops. Also from London, we’ve got Pressure Drop’s Stokey Brown, an American style brown ale that mixes some of the best of British and American styles, alongside their traditional London porter, the Street Porter.
Having been flying through cases of Marble’s first canned beer, Te Arai, we’re delighted to stock the next load of the canned beers. Howgate & Kemp is a Kiwi hopped IPA that was brewed as a collaboration between Marble’s outgoing brewer, Matthew Howgate, and incoming brewer, James Kemp. We also have their iconic Earl Grey IPA, probably our best selling Marble beer for us in bottles, so we can guarantee these are going to go crazy in cans! Staying up North, we’re incredibly excited to get a limited amount of Buxton’s latest barrel-aged release, the Single Bourbon Barrel Rain Shadow. One of the best imperial stouts brewed in the UK, we can’t wait to see what a fair period of time in oak has done for this beer!
Further afield, but staying in Europe, Estonia’s premier craft brewery Pohjala have bought across some more of their great beers. On the lighter side, we’ve got their Virmalised Grapefruit IPA, Uus Maailm Session IPA and Mutant Disco, a Tequilla barrel-aged white IPA! Pretty cool, right? Well, check out their slightly darker beers! ÖÖ XO is a Cognac barrel-aged imperial porter, Taara Avita a Rum barrel-aged Imperial Stout and Must Kuld, one of the best porters in the world.
Finally, in preparation for next weeks Meet the Brewer event with Ska Brewing from America, we’ve got a whole heap of new arrivals! Including fresh Modus Hoperandi and Rudie Session IPA, we’ve got coming in Buster Nut Brown Ale, ESB, Pinstripe Red Ale, Modus Manderina and True Blonde. If you want to give these a go, sign up to our event by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or asking Chippy very nicely! We won’t be putting them out onto the shelves, but we can always spare a can or two if you can’t wait to try them.
