May 2013 - At a recent Beer Festival at The George in Eartham (lovely pub this and
no big brand lagers to be seen!) Halcyon Hop Haze was the second fastest to sell
out, and was voted joint first by the Landlord as his favourite beer. So the big
guns are reeling from the power of Natural Beer :-)
April 2013 - Great news if you are a publican in Kent or London through we are now
able to offer delivery to a much wider market. Please get in touch with us for delivery
March 2013 - Sussex Subwoofer Stout or Triple S if you prefer is now ready. It is
a delicious traditional style stout but using a more modern High Alpha English Hop
called Admiral which is actually grown in Sussex. Delicious and as you can imagine
a whole lot tastier than the market leader...
February 2013 - Very interesting day spent with Downlands Brewery being hjis brew
February 2013 - Today we received some new casks from Global Polymer Solutions. Unlike
other plastic casks on the market which regularly leak and blow shives (especially
if properly primed) these have been tested way beyond the likely abuse the on trade
will throw at them. Here is a link to a video showing it being dropped 4 metres whilst
full of -18deg antifreeze (plastic is known to be brittle when cold). One of the
nicest parts of the design is the screw in shive with a reinforced s/steel band solving
the issues other designs have which try to use conventional shives.
January 2013 - HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! This year we will be upping production as we
will have more casks! Rather than being one of the rarest beers around we hope you’ll
find it easier to locate. If you don’t see our beers in your local then pester the
bar manager. Most breweries employ sales people or deal with distributors so it’s
easy for smaller brewers like us to get forgotten. We’ll have two beers in the CAMRA
festival in Hove as well in March.
December 2012 - thanks to all our customers in 2012. Look out for more beer from
us in 2013. We will have more casks and will also be selling KeyKegs to satisfy national
and international demand.
October 2012 - In order to differentiate our product still further, our beer will
now undergo extended brewery conditioning. This means the cost of each cask will
rise approx £5.
September 2012 - Halcyon Hop Haze is getting a very good reaction from drinkers.
We will soon be able to offer bottles of beer via distributors and local outlets.
September 2012 - Getting harder to keep track of the news and events page which must
be a good thing ! Thunderbolt has proved popular but our next beer to launch Halcyon
Hop Haze 4% is nearly ready !
August 2012 - BEER FINDER -Snowdrop Inn have Thunderbolt. Advise calling to see
when they are putting it on.
August 2012 - BEER FINDER -Craft Beer Co BN1 have Thunderbolt. Advise calling beforehand.
July 2012 - BEER FINDER - The Sir Roger Tichborne have Thunderbolt & English Electric
Lightning. Craft Beer Co BN1 have Thunderbolt. Advise calling beforehand.
July 2012 - English Electric Lightning was one of the first to sell out at the recent
Shepherd & Dog Beer Festival. I only hope they get more luck with the weather next
year, as it’s been wet two years in a row. Someone important from Camra wanted to
know why we weren’t fining. The simple reason is an unfined beer left for the required
time has a better flavour in our opinion. This is echoed by many. See our Natural
Beer page . Now if our beer is treated in the same was as fined beer it will be hazy
bordering on cloudy. Left just a few days more it will drop much brighter and taste
devine. Is a few more days not worth the effort? The barman at the beer festival
understood that the haze was normal and customers couldn’t get enough of it. Prejudice
remains, and where the server feels doubt, the customer will rarely enjoy the experience
as the taste buds are no longer the only judge.
July 2012 - BEER FINDER 10th July- EEL will be on at the Duke of Wellington, Shoreham
soon give them a call and ask them when it’s going on.
June 2012 - BEER FINDER 29/6- Natural Unfined English Electric Lightning will be
available at Thomas A Becket Worthing for their beer Festival starting on the 29th
June 2012 - BEER FINDER 8/6 - English Electric Lighting available this weekend 8th
June at The Stanley Arms, Portslade. Available next week at the Sir Roger Tichborne
June 2012 - More and more brewers seem to be appearing. It’s worrying how many are
selling others beer though. Building a brand on someone else's beer is a big risk,
when variations in liquor and equipment ensure the product will change when they
set up their own operation. For us it’s about product first, then marketing.
June 2012 - English Electric Lightning is now ready for sale. This powerful full
flavoured Special Bitter is we hope going to be very popular!
May 2012 - We sold a cask to a fantastic Pub called the Sir Roger Tichborne. Narrowly
missing a tree falling in the road on the way there the area was stunning even more
so due to the high water level making you appreciate just how close the waterways
were. The major of local ales and have a busy house even in quiet times. Definitely
on the edges of our current delivery range but well worth the effort.
May 2012 - English Electric Lightning is now fermenting. See our beers page for more
April 2012 - Thanks to Dark Star Brewing Co, Baseline Brewing will be featured at
the Reading Beer Festival.
March 2012 - First sales of Dark Matter and Thunderbolt begin - so far feedback on
the beer has been very good!
