So Redchurch have gone into administration. Their boss was ripping the arse out of the company including the crowd funding.

Pity, at one point they had a few very good beers and a cracking taproom. Their sour range under james rylance (now at harbour) was exceptional.

Actually, reading more about this it seems they're keeping the tap room under a different co name and selling off the brewery to cover debts. Completely fúcking over the small investors.

No surprise there really but still a shame. Had always been very fond of them.

A lot of the last £875k went into the owner's pocket. And nose.

Weird that. I'm always supremely sceptical around any brewery's crowdfunding scheme but the way Redchurch had been going it seemed like money after nothing in particular.

Work done for the week as I'm working on the experiment, pressure drop and verdant's taproom which reopens at 4.

The sun is out and I have free range of the taps and fridges.

Life is tough sometimes.

I'm going to watch some of the Giro at Look Mum No Hands and then off to the Old Fountain with some Septic friends who are in London.

We might pop down to the Moor taproom afterwards and Needoo Grill is a distinct possibility.

One of the benefits of being unemployed/retired :)

Enid street is a fair diversion for what sounds like an excellent afternoon.

If I'm in the old fountain I normally end up going to the wenlock. I've a soft spot for that pub.

Lucky Bastard!
Let me know if you have Verdant's "Thanks a Million" if it's on. It was the investors beer and I didn't quite invest enough for the freebies they sent out :lol:
They've caused a bit of a row as they've re-brewed it already when it was supposed to be an investors one-off. Hopefully on line to buy tomorrow.
They released an American Brown Ale collab with Boxcar last week. Would be interested to know what it's like on keg as the can is not bad.

They have a few cans of thanks a million so I'll let you know.

I'm staying more on the pressure drop side. Started with Pam a rhubarb and red currant sour, now moved on to parachute

Bintang is pretty good.

I can drink it all day without getting blind even with a few Jagers.

Not much choice around here anyway but the hangovers are mild. :)

Im sure it was mentioned here previously but if you get a chance to try the garage project May Fresh IPA then please do, Stunning.

Pomeroys here in Chch currently have all 4 versions of the garage project x guest brewers Hapi sessions on tap, along with the May fresh IPA.

Vol 1 - GP x trillium brewing (USA) Juicy Hazy east coast IPA (One of the best beers Ive had this year)
Vol 2 - GP x firestone walker brewing (USA) hoppy Pils, crisp and clean
Vol 3 - GP x other half brewing (USA) Hazy, hoppy Oat cream IPA
Vol 4 - GP x three weavers brewco (USA) Big body West Coast IPA

I'm not a huge GP fan but these are Fantastic beers!

So a mate runs a small brewery here. Being tied into the rugby scene he often runs a bar at matches, tournaments etc.

I was at an under 8s tournie the other week and if you sent his team a text they would deliver your beer to you pitch side to any of if the 4 pitches in play that day.

Fantastic.

It is something have looked into (mulled wine at winter international matches)
How did he find who ordered?
Think slightly different over with you, payment was a concern. People ordering loads (or joke ordering to mates seats) so looked a app and prepayment but licence laws was an issue.

On a similar note, I had this the other day. Sensational for an under 5%. Very much like the bigger beers of the same style but you can still walk after a few pints.

I can help you with this if you're looking into this seriously.

Heady Topper is quite good and really quite puts into perspective how much of an achievement Cloudwater V3 was.

It great for a session or a couple when you are driving. Sours really do survive lower alcohol content well and retain that all important drink ability.

No one ever truly feels like a second amstel light, but have had many sub 3% sours that I could drink all day.

Well, for all my slagging off of verdant for just making variants of the same juicy pales, I've just had something very decent from them.

A collab with kirkstall brewery called break even. Very nice pale ale ON CASK. 4.6%

Also check out pressure drop's new release (today). A Million Filaments 7.4% Blackberry, blackcurrant, milk sugar, and mosaic Sour IPA.

Guess where I went instead of doing the garden🤔

The Experiment!!!!
The Verdant American Wheats are pretty good though some might say a variation on a theme! Their recent brown was a tasty can as well. Haven't seen a Verdant on cask as yet.
Pressure Drop doing a tap take over at my local beer shop next Friday. Will look out for that one though I found the last two straight sours Pam and Edna a bit too sour for me, maybe this one being an IPA with some milk sugar might more to my taste?

I love sours, but think this one will appeal to you more.

Same. They've produced some stunners. Even their "ordinary" boring old lager is good.

Based on an IPA but with additions I'm guessing.

Basically that. There's very little rigidity in how you name beers nowadays, but I'll expand when I have more time/energy.

In other news, I just finished off the evening with a very nice malty west coast style ipa (think Sierra Nevada torpedo style).

The odd thing was that it was from Utah which surprised me greatly.
Uinta brewery hop nosh ipa. Would drink again, however unlikely that would seem

I guess the mosaic helps with the pale ale description, but a sour by definition is soured, so I'm wondering how they achieved that?

Ok, I've read the blurb on it, it's soured with lactobacillius, so fair enough. But it also has wheat and lactose in it. What is the world coming to! :x
