:: Brews in brief

Small batch brewer Honest Brew has created an Amber beer as part of its Straight Up series. It’s a warming autumnal ale designed to accompany a hearty seasonal dish.

Everards’ Pumpkin Ale returns this October. “The rich ruby coloured beer, 3.8% ABV, is made with real pumpkin offering a depth of flavour. A burnt, smoky character is balanced with light citrus flavours,” says the brewer.

CAPDOG (9% ABV) is a new smokey black IPA, brewed to imperial strength and infused with cascara, the fruit of the coffee plant. Subtly sweet, with big resin and chocolate notes, balanced by spicy and smokey flavours, it is a collaboration between BrewDog and Swedish brewery CAP (Curious Audacious Products).

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.

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