THE REDEMPTION OF VANITY
Azvex had a little trademark blip with Vantablack but fear not, here is something even better...
They have been putting a bit of work into their dark beer recently and this was the perfect opportunity to make good use of their findings and produce a better peanut based stout.
The Redemption of Vanity is a Peanut Butter Brownie Imperial Stout coming in at 13% ABV and is as good as they have done to date.
With Renaissance Tanks Azvex ramped up that clean piney bitterness for you westy fans. Lotus, Chinook & Strata provide the artillery for this masterpiece.
TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES
For this West Coast Session IPA they changed protocols and used an old German lager strain to ferment out the beer, leaving a refreshing and crisp base for the Chinook, Idaho 7 and Azacca hops to shine on.
This one is so clean and so so drinkable.
In case you didn't notice, Azvex's fave hop is the fantastic Citra.
They thought that they should make a beer that really showcased this fabulous hop so they came up with Robot Wolf.
An unbelievably drinkable 5.2 % Pale Ale hopped exclusively with (you guessed it) Citra!

MANCHESTER FRESH HOP GOLDEN ALE '23
Track are so excited to bring you the next edition of their ‘Brewers Cut’ project, aptly named ‘Manchester Fresh Hop Golden Ale 23’.
Their first ever Green Hop beer, utilising freshly grown hops from MCR Hop Project.
"It was such a joy to be able to use a product grown in local soil by passionate folks and to experiment and push ourselves with an ingredient that we’ve used many times, but not in this form."
The result is a crisp Golden Ale with a bready malt character, that gives way to an assertive and long bitterness. We get fresh bread, biscuit crumb with a delicate citrus zip.

The beer draws inspiration in name and character from their respective house saisons - Saison della Casa & Saison de Maison. Pastore are big fans of Balance's wild beers & the new space they've created at their taproom in Manchester which carries a wonderful list of UK wild producers.
The grist is largely made up of heritage Hana malt along with oats, spelt, wheat and raw barley from a local farm. Hopped with some lovely cheesy aged hops from Balance & fermented in stainless steel for six months with Pastore's mother culture of wild yeasts and microbes.
They have also let some rest in oak to revisit next year.

THE BRETT ORGANIC STOCK ALE 2020
Welcome the return of one of L.E.P's original "core range" styles.
Strong stock ales were historically brewed during the autumn months to mature over the winter. Brewed using local ingredients and assisted in fermentation by the wild yeasts likely present in the oak barrels. Their version uses organic Suffolk barley as well as their own organic homegrown Fuggles & Goldings hops then aged in wood with their mixed culture for 13 months. Further aged in bottle since, now almost 3 years old, it's ready to head out into the world.
DRY HOPPED GRISETTE
After having made recent appearances on keg, Little Earth feel it's about time they release this lil grisette into the world!

We'll try to update everyone with anything that's exciting or new. Give us some feedback!
