Cheers on Beer, Spirits and Wine.

Sounds great.

This week sees our second beer in the Electric Avenue series available in retailers across the land. We went with a pale ale this time hopped with Talus and Hallertau Blanc. It's a deliciously crisp refreshing blast of bitter orange and green fruit with a floral vanilla finish.


Starting on April 3 we have 3 weeks of great sessions, followed by a 2-week special event.

April 3 we're focusing on Cider and will have StonewellLegacy and Tempted to come and talk. Craft cider doesn't have the same market or get the same attention as beer but it's been going through a renewal as well so this should be good.

April 10 we have LinemanBullhouse and Killarney taking part. 3 great breweries who have different markets and experiences, this should lead to some good chat.

April 17 is something different as Dundalk/Brewmaster and Trouble (making a welcome return) will be joined by Peak Beer from Belgium. This should be the start of a number of international chats and it'll be really interesting to see the differences in markets, tastes and experiences.

And then we have our special event!

If you've been paying attention to brewing you'll have seen kviek yeast come to prominence in the last couple of years. In one way it's the biggest innovation in brewing for years, but it's using some of the oldest traditional yeast strains still around.

This came to prominence thanks to Lars Marius Garshol, a Norwegian programmer with a passion for traditional brewing methods. His blog and book brought traditional methods and yeasts to a wider world.

Lithuania is a country that Lars identified as having a unique brewing culture. One they've managed to preserve. Throughout the country you can buy traditional farmhouse beers such as Kaimiškas, Tamsusis, Šviesusis, and Keptinis. Brewed using unique yeasts, malts and techniques, these are like no beer you've ever tasted.


White Hag's New England IPA Gets Bigger

Great news for our Atlantean lovers... 
Our Atlantean New England IPA has gotten a new suit of armour, graduating to our 440ml range.

In this creamy and cloudy IPA we use copious amounts of American hops to add a big, juicy fruit punch. Oats and lactose add a rich creaminess that subdues the bitterness, making this beer similar to a hopshake. Drink this beer as fresh as possible, when all the Alpha & Beta oils from the hops are the most powerful.

This is available to buy online now (both full cases and mixed cases available). The first ten customer to add a case of Atlantean and an Atlantean snood to their basket and use the code 'FreeSnoodBenny' will get a free Atlantean snood.
