Our very first fruit beer, made using the finest local Asprington Raspberries was an experiment in itself, we were finding our feet as we went along. Turns out it’s a messy old process. Three times as many raspberries were used as hops to flavour this fruity delight.
A “Bronx Cheer” Or ’Blowing a raspberry’, is to produce a sound similar to flatulence…!!
‘CELEBRATE BRITAIN’S NATIONAL DRINK’
What is Cask Ale week?
“Cask Ale week is a celebration of Britain’s National drink. It runs from September 22nd to October 1st.
It is being run to both celebrate our National Drink, and to bring new consumers in to the Cask Ale market that might either not have tried cask ale before, or those that might have dropped out of it for some reason.
65% of UK drinkers have NEVER tried Cask Ale before. Of those that do drink Cask Ale, 40% are converted.”
We’re giving 10% off all Cask Ale over this period, so if you haven’t got on board with cask beer before, now there’s no excuse!
This August Bank Holiday sees the return of the fantastic Sea Change Festival to Totnes. Almost every event space from Ballrooms to Churches will become part of the music programming. For this event weekend, we have brewed a special session beer, ‘Halcyon Daze’. We will also be offering 10% off cask ale that weekend to Festival Wristband holders, let the party commence!
Thanks so much to everyone who turned out last night for the launch of our new beer, this time, collaborated not with a brewery, but with a boat, and brewed by our very own Cuckoo brewer Ben.
We were very happy to welcome a selection of the Brixham sailing community to the bar to try our brand new ‘Pilgrim IPA’. Brewed using the English hop, Pilgrim, and to a very traditional recipe, we were really glad to offer Pilgrim’s very own skipper, Brendan and his crew a pint or three of his boat’s namesake beer!
‘Pilgrim IPA’ will be on the bar all weekend for you all to enjoy, with 50p a pint going to help maintain the beautiful boat itself.
Should you wish to take a trip on the Pilgrim herself, contact the crew here.. http://pilgrimofbrixham.co.uk/
We are incredibly excited today for our collaborative beer launch with the guys from The Pilgrim of Brixham.
They invited us out for a spot of sailing not so long ago, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Once we realised that there was in fact an English aroma & bittering hop called Pilgrim – well the recipe wrote itself!
Join us for the maiden voyage of our very British and Boaty IPA…
Back in stock at The Brewery, our 2 liter Growlers. At £25 a pop, they hold just under four pints of delicious fresh craft beer – meaning you can take your beer home with you, or out to enjoy at your leisure!
The perfect Father’s Day gift we think!
Last week, we were very lucky to be invited aboard ‘The Pilgrim of Brixham’, built in 1895 by J W & A Uphams, one of Brixham’s most famous yards. PILGRIM was one of six similar vessels built at the yard during that year. She is one of a Handful of Surviving red sailed, wood built Brixham Sailing Trawlers.
We gathered the gang from the brewery together, and set sail under the command of our Skipper Brendon. We were guided through the bay with the experienced and steady hand of John at the helm, and with the wile Elliye scaring us half to death with her rigging climbing and deck hand skills. (Sam’s superior coffee and biscuit game was also well on point.)
Off we sailed, out of Brixham harbor, no rest for the wicked, however, we were put straight to work…
We had an absolutely fantastic time on board The Pilgrim, and would wholeheartedly recommend the trip to anyone. By the end of our journey, we had some very weary, salty and smiley brewers and bartenders…
Thanks so much to the guys from The Pilgrim, we certainly left with some fantastic memories, and maybe just a bit of a piratey glint in our eyes.. (I mean, come on, she looks like The Black Pearl right?!)
If you would like to head out on The Pilgrim yourself, she is available for hire http://pilgrimofbrixham.co.uk/
