NEW THIS WEEK
Take a look here for all the exciting beers coming your way this week!
Keep it light, keep on floating. Pressure Drop have used the palest malt in this West Coast style pale ale to really let this crisp and delicious hop shine.
Pressure Drop added loads of fresh American hops to give this hazy pale ale a zippy tropical flavour. Why did they put a bunch of Aussie animals on the can then? They just think they're neat.
WHERE WILL WE GO
A Hazy Pale hopped with Moutere, Cashmere, Cashmere CGX & Strata CGX.
I BROUGHT SNACKS
A DDH Pale brewed with Sureshot. Hopped with Nectaron, Luminosa, Zappa & Cryo Pop.
MY PHONE'S ON SNOOZE
Deya's annual raspberry Berliner Weisse. Lots of wheat, almost no hops and nearly two tonnes of raspberry puree….raspberry to the max, over a quick acidic base, deeeelicious.
Walking the line between sticky pine and sweet stone fruit. A mixed grist of vienna, wheat and oats lays down the body for a slightly drier finish, perfectly in balance with the flavours from the dry hop…superb.
BUSHY BUSHY BLONDE HAIRDO
Inside Outside West Coast Pale, Inside Outside West Coast Pale, INSIDE OUTSIDE WEST COAST PALE. Everybody's going drinking, drinking West Coast Pale! Hopped with Ekuanot, Galaxy, Magnum & Crystal for a little of the Old School, and a little of the new

x EPOCHAL PROPER CLASS
'Proper Class' is Donzoko's first ever collaboration hosted at Jane Street and they were delighted to work with Gareth from Epochal based in Glasgow. 'Proper Class' is a European hopped pale ale with spelt. It features a lovely herbal and citrusy flavour with a full body provided by locally sourced spelt.
Neon Raptor asked their Instagram followers which beers they should bring back for this year's Neon RapTour and they decided on the following...
BUY IT, USE IT, FIX IT, BREAK IT (originally brewed in 2020)
NEIPA double dry hopped with Citra and Mosaic as well as Motueka and Nelson.
TOTAL ECLIPSE (originally brewed in 2019)
A creamy full bodied Jaffa Cake Stout. Raptor added cacao shells from Luísa’s Vegan Chocolates, their awesome neighbours, and mandarin orange to create a luxurious zingy treat.
RUBBER DINGHY RAPIDS (originally brewed in 2021)
Hopped with Simcoe Cryo, Vic Secret, Mosaic and Ekuanot and plenty of wheat and oats to boost the body, this DIPA is a full on juice bomb.
LEAPING LLAMAS (originally brewed in 2019)
The lime zings, the passion fruit pings, and the guava brings the balance. It's the fruited gose you always wanted.
PLAN A PRETTY PICNIC
A new DDH pale ale brewed in collaboration with Rivington.
Sureshot had a fun idea to only use hops either trademarked or developed in 2000 (AD) in this beer. While the sister collab brew up at Rivvy's - 'I Brought Snacks' - uses only the newest lupulins.
The results are a brew stacked with modern-millennial hops: Simcoe Cryo, Nelson Sauvin & Vic Secret. Tasting all sorts of zingy mandarin and creamy clementine. They couldn't be more smitten with it and their mates, the wonders from up yonders, Rivington.
DEVELOPMENT HELL 4
The 4th in Azvex's series where they explore new ingredients, techniques, and brewing ideas. This time it's an IPA with their friends at Turning Point. For Development Hell 4 they explored Salvo, a flowable hop product from Hopsteiner. Dry hopped with the top-tier combo of Citra, Mosaic & Simcoe.
LEFT HANDED GIANT
A hit of red grapefruit peel and sherbet lead into healthy lashings of heady pine, pithy orange and bright spruce. Like sipping a Negroni Sbagliato at the foot of a giant Redwood.
x DUGGES SUNSET FLIP
With an orange hue as vibrant as a Midsummer Supermoon, this brew is built on a base of lager malt with layers of wheat and oats. Soured, salted and blended with Orange, Passionfruit and a savoury-sweet hit of Carrot. This collab contains multitudes of flavour - crisp, juicy and thirst-quenching in turn.
“These pleasures, a wayward distraction, this is my one lucky prize...” Brew York have teamed up with Southwold legends Adnams to create a quaffable pale which pays tribute to the legendary group Joy Division.
With Adnams Class III yeast strain in ‘Isolation’, they have used an eclectic mix of Columbus, Harlequin, Idaho 7, Cashmere & Mosaic hops to create a smooth and juicy modern pale ale with delightful fruit character.
As you take a sip of Vocation Neon Fog, the bold flavors of Mosaic, Galaxy, Talus, Sabro and Citra explode in your mouth, transporting you to a lively dance floor surrounded by neon strobes and swirling smoke.
This New England style TIPA is triple dry hopped, making it packed with a hoppy punch that is as strong as the beats of the bass. As the foggy haze permeates your senses, you'll feel the power of the alcohol creeping up on you like the sound of a distant drum, encouraging you to dance and celebrate the flavours that are permeating your taste buds.

PEANUT BUTTER & GRAPE JELLY
This months of Volumes celebrates US Independence Day with a homage to America's greatest contribution to sandwich lore. No, they're not talking about the Philly Cheesesteak, that would be gross. It's peanut butter jelly time; with a unique grape twist!
A rich, indulgent Imperial Stout with a touch of white bread sweetness. Crafted using the finest red grape juice and natural concord grape for luscious layers of berry flavours, that seamlessly blend into a rich, roasted peanut butter essence.
Free from crunchy bits and bothersome crusts.
U OK HON?
Earlier this year Vocation teamed up with Leeds Small Batch Hot Sauciers Thiccc Sauce to bring you Kirsch of Death - a deep, spicy, juicy Cherry Chocolate sour winter warmer based on Death By Cherries. Now the climate’s gone all tropical (albeit tropical monsoon, currently) they’ve teamed up with them again for something completely different: U Ok Hon? Pineapple Hot Honey Sour.
Vocation have taken Death By Pineapple, tweaked the ABV to 6.5% for a thicccer, juicier mouthfeel, infused it with habanero chillies for clean, fruity heat, and a touch of honey to round out that lip-smacking sourness and tongue-tingling spice.
BARREL AGED IMPERIAL BUENO SHAKE
Ageing in bourbon-laced wood has created a bigger character and built on those already indulgent and decadent flavours we love in Bueno Shake.
The result is a complex mix of melted dark and milk chocolate with toasted hazelnuts, a touch of fragrant spice from the rye and sweet wafer and vanilla.
Lightly smoked & spiced Bourbon from the charred American oak, finishing with a velvet smoothness for an incredibly easy drinking and indulgent finish.
Luscious ebony delight with creamy Indulgence brewed with a blend of 8 carefully selected malts together with lactose. A perfect harmony of sweet marshmallow and caramel flavors on top of a heavy coffee infused imperial stout that brings your sweet tooth out.
x Three Sons SYRUP CITY
Imperial Pastry Stout brewed in collaboration with Corey Artanis from 3 Sons Brewing in Florida. Conditioned over cocoa, chocolate, vanilla, and maple syrup. With an intense flavor of roasted malts and delicious additions, this beer presents itself as dense on the palate, offering a flavor bath where bitterness and sweetness coexist in perfect harmony. Visit this city of syrup where the streets meltdown under your feet...
Think pink! Basqueland just brewed a second batch of this sour that you liked so much. This time they’ve adjusted the alcohol to 5.2% to make it even more drinkable and almost perfect for summer time.
Flamingos are a stunning pink color as a result of their diet. Basqueland want to make you glow like a flamingo. So they’ve made a refreshing beer with added raspberries, hibiscus, and passionfruit (not pink but delicious) to give this beer and you a beautiful pink hue. The tannins released by the fruit flesh add a subtle bitterness that complements the fruity sourness of this rosé beer.
FRESH N' ZIPPY
After Crush, they take the step towards a Double IPA with the use of the Sauvignon Blanc Phantasm® grape skin-based thiol precursor, which awakens intense fruit aromas by interacting with yeast during fermentation.
To create this unique beer, they add Cascade hops during the mash, Mosaic alongside Phantasm® during the whirlpool, and finish off with a dry-hop of Mosaic, Motueka, and Mosaic Cryo.
The result is an immense range of fruit with aromas of white grapes, pink guava, pineapple and grapefruit skin, together with that of sour caramels. On the palate it is forceful, with great body and silky, with hardly any bitterness and with flavors of white grapes, yellow peach and ripe pineapple.
x Outer Range MONT BLANC
We’ve reached the mountaintops! With the help of Outer Range, Basqueland have made an IPA at the pinnacle of the tropical jungle of aromas, with clementine sorbet notes and jelly fruit nuances. Outer Range was founded in Frisco, Colorado, and recently opened their second outpost in Chamonix, France. To celebrate their landing in the Alps, Basqueland made this beer at their place and have already invited themselves to theirs for the next ski season!
Órdago = All in. Challenge your senses! Do you accept the bet? Crafted with a substantial amount of oats, both in flakes and malt, to create a smooth mouthfeel, like a cloud. You can appreciate fruity aromas of lychee and white grape, while on the palate, you’ll experience citrus flavors, cantaloupe melon, and red currant, rounded off with a subtle touch of bitterness and a pale, hazy appearance.
Unfiltered cloudy IPA, incredibly drinkable, with a monovarietal dry-hop of Cashmere hops that give it refreshing aromas of lime, lemon and melon.

Woof-woof!
A blend of selected 15-month Porto barrel-aged Imperial Stout and 6-hour boiled young Imperial Stout that has been heavily conditioned over raspberry and vanilla beans. A giant clash that results in a boldly flavored beer with tantalizing dark nuances, a warming body, and a beautiful black color with a red hue.
On the nose, intense ripe raspberry aroma from the Porto barrels with a touch of vanilla, followed by hints of cocoa, wood, dark fruits, and spices. In the mouth, it is dense and sweet, combining the flavors of the port barrel with dark maltiness, earthiness, and raspberry character.
A beer meant to be enjoyed with friends and family, it pairs amazingly well with strong cheese, and dark forest pie, but is equally enjoyable on its own.
The label was designed in collaboration with world-renowned artist Carlos Irijalba.
