What's Brewing

At Tap East this week we've been brewing up a couple of old favourites, alongside a brand new recipe. In Fermentation Vessel One we have our famous Coffee In the Morning, a dark and smooth stout made with fresh ground coffee beans courtesy of our friends at "Grind". In FV2 this week we have Tonic Ale, our low strength big flavour hoppy pale ale. But it's in FV3 that we currently have our newest brew fermenting. A lime wheat beer, name TBC. Made with British wheat and lager malts, hopped with Slovenian Savinjski Golding hops, and fermented with traditional German wheat beer yeast. Not to forgot the addition of 3kg of limes and kaffir lime leaves to the two and half barrel brew. It's one not to be missed and it should be available at Tap East within the next month. So watch this space and we'll keep you posted.

Beer Launch 23/01/14 - La Lumiere Rouge

The first ever batch of Tap East La Lumiere Rouge was debuted at the Indy Man Beer Con last year. It was a young saison that had been aged in a red wine barrel for two months, and was only available on keg. On 23rd January 2014 we will be releasing a matured version of La Lumiere Rouge, having spent a total of five months aging in our red wine barrel. The beer will be available on cask for the very first time, so be sure not to miss out on this one off brew. Only a few casks remain, and when it's gone it's gone!
