:: Brews in brief

Oakham Ales is launching a new special, the Navi (5.5% ABV) to coincide with Cask Ale Week. It’s an addition to the brewery’s aged and vintage range.

Beer website AleTalk has launched its annual search for Britain’s best beer. The site’s registered users can vote on their favourite beers in two categories: draught (cask or keg) and packaged (bottled or canned). Voters can list up to three beers in each of the two categories.

Celt Experience is brewing Farmhouse Pomegranate Saison this week. “Its low mash temp encourages a dry finish to allow the tartness from the pomegranate to come through,” says the brewer, who is using Dupont saison yeast.

Harveys’ winter seasonal brew, Old Ale, will be launched at the brewery on Saturday, October 4, after a service of thanksgiving at St Thomas a Beckett’s Church.

Greene King is producing a special limited edition beer for Cask Ale Week. Old Nutty Hen is a 4.5% ABV warming chestnut ale which will be available in selected pubs.

Brewmeister has launched ‘yes’ and ‘no’ labelled beers to tie in with the Scottish independence vote. The bottles — which are filled with the same beer — will be on sale until Sunday when the sales will be counted and a poll published on which was more successful.

Brentwood Brewing Co’s beer of the month is Strawberry ‘n’ Lime, brewed with strawberries from Calcott Hll Farm Shop.

Left Coast Distribution is bringing two Hermitage beers to the UK. Citra is a 7% ABV single-hop beer with resiny, citrus notes offset by toasty malt. Mandarina Bavaria is also 7% and focuses on the new German hop Mandarina, with Cascade lineage, whicj, not unexpectedly, offers mandarin flavours. Bot beers are available in 20-litre kegs.

Firebrand Brewing Co, from Cornwall, will be staging a tap takeover at The Rake, Southwark, London, on Thursday, September 4, from 5pm. More details on the Utobeer website

A new batch of Siren Craft Brew IPAs are available from online beer seller EeBria. 10 Finger Discount, 10 Toe Discount, Middle Finger Discount and The Tickle Monster join an already strong Siren line-up. There are new brews from Buxton, too, including Wolfscote, Grain and Grape, Stolen Fruit, Sky Mountain Sour and Double Axe.

Autumnal special Copper Beech is now available in the Chiltern Brewery shop. Single hopped with Challenger, the beer is burnt orange in colour and has a smooth, spicy palate.

Everards’ seasonal Autumn Equinox is back. Brewed with some of the finest British ingredients, including Goldings hops and Maris Otter barley, this golden ale has a delicate balance of both sweetness and bitterness that is smooth and easy to drink, says the brewer.

Greg Koch from Stone Brewing Co and the team from Magic Rock have teamed up with the BrewDog guys to create Magic Stone Dog (5% ABV), combining the best qualities of a saison and a pale ale. It’s in bottle now.

Brazilian brews from Amazon Beer are now being imported into the UK by Hertfordshire-based World Beers. Forest Bacuri, Acai Stout, Witbier Taperebá and Red Ale Priprioca are flavored with local fruits, seeds and roots. In the recent International Beer Challenge, Pilsen won gold ad Bacuri a bronze.
