Walthamstow Beer - Hop picking

Posted By Esme Bradbury in News

There was a great turn out of both hops and pickers on Sunday for the making of the annual green hopped beers.  These amazing Walthamstow residents are part of the Walthamstow Beer Hop project and have been growing hops in their gardens this year to go in this special community beer!  The green hopped pale and dark will both launch at Ye Olde Rose & Crown in Walthamstow on Thursday 27th September, see you there!

Single-Hop Specials

Posted By Esme Bradbury in News

We've been busy this summer with our new range of monthly specials! Starting in July we released a different single-hop session pale each month which were all extremely popular!  July saw Mandarina fly out of the doors, August was Wolf which we had to make an unprecedented 4th batch of to meet demand and out now for September is Calypso featuring a fruity American hop with notes of pineapple, pear and lime.  Catch it while you can as if it follows in the footsteps of the others it'll be gone before you know it!

Devilishly Delicious Samples Night

It's that time of year again, when the ghosts and ghouls come out to play and certain people (not us) throw pumpkin in their beer! We are going to be getting our creep on down at The Duchess of Kent with a spooky samples evening as part of the Halloween extravaganza! Nightwatchman will be pouring on the taps, and we will be armed with an abundance of samples for you to devour!  So pop down, if you dare....

Walthamstow Beer Project 2017

Posted By Claire Ashbridge-Thomlinson in News

Over the past few years, the Walthamstow Beer Project has proven to be a winner with beer aficionado's and green fingered gardeners alike, and this years event was bigger and better than ever. So much so, that we had enough hops to make two, yes TWO beers! If you're unfamiliar with the concept, this is the 4th year that ELB & Walthamstow Beer Project have collaborated. It encourages members to grow and then bring their hop bines to the brewery for a day of picking & brewing! The hops used are Prima Donna hops, which offer a rich citrus flavour....

Orchid Vanilla Mild

Posted By Claire Ashbridge-Thomlinson in News

Unfortunately, we’re having to take a break from brewing Orchid, our Vanilla Mild, as we can’t get hold of the vanilla pods we use to brew it at a price to make it viable. Prices for the pods have sky-rocketed by over 400% in the last 6 months and global vanilla supply is way down, a combination of factors including bad weather, political instability and an influx of market speculators. We’ll be brewing a final gyle for cask in the next few weeks, so get your orders in!  

Gosh it's nearly Christmas already.
