Saazy Blonde ABV 3.8% 500ml bottle
This beer is available throughout the year but is ideal summer drinking and one to tempt lager drinkers in to trying some proper beer! Pale malt, together with caramalt and wheat malt, produce a straw-coloured beer. Saaz hops from the Czech Republic provide minimal bitterness (19 IBUs) and a lovely aroma.
Cascade Pale ABV 4.6% 500ml bottle
This pale ale is brewed with predominantly pale malt, with just small amounts of caramalt and wheat malt. American Cascade hops produce over 30 IBUs of bitterness, and then lashings of Cascade are used in the latter stages of the brewing process to produce the wonderful aroma.
Anchor Pale Ale ABV 4.7% 500ml bottle
A traditional English pale ale, made with pale malt, pale crystal malt, caramalt and wheat malt. Admiral hops provide a gentle 25 IBUs of bitterness as well as the citrusy aroma.
Double-Anchor IPA ABV 5.8% 500ml bottle
To complement the Anchor Ale we've produced a Double Anchor version, in the style of a traditional India Pale Ale i.e. high in alcohol and heavily hopped, so as to withstand the long voyage from England to India in the 19th century. The grains are pale and crystal malts, plus some oat malt for head retention and body. A blend of Target and Goldings hops produces over 40 IBUs of bitterness.
Lodona 1862 ABV 5.9% 500ml bottle
This series of American IPAs uses a range of popular US hops, such as Mosaic, Citra and Amarillo. The malts are pale malt, pilsner malt and wheat malt, so as to allow the hops to do all the talking. These US hops certainly pack a punch when it comes to aroma and flavour!
NOTE: The current batch is a blend of Amarillo and Mosaic hops.
Larkin's Bitter ABV 4.6% 500ml bottle - SEE GREEN HOP BITTER BELOW
This is a traditional bitter, named after the poet Philip Larkin who created some of his greatest work whilst living in Hull. It's brewed with pale and crystal malts and just a touch of chocolate malt for colour and flavour. Wheat malt and flaked oats create a good head. Target hops are used for bittering and Fuggles for aroma.
Bosphorous 1875 ABV 5.4% 500ml bottle
This is dark ruby ale is based on a Victorian recipe for mild ale - from the days when 'mild' was not synonymous with low alcohol and a lack of flavour. Pale, crystal and black malts give the rich, malty, slightly sweet flavour,
with Fuggles hops providing a relatively low 24 IBUs of bitterness.
Do your research and see if you can find where the name comes from.
Zoroaster 1818 ABV 5.8% 500ml bottle
This black IPA is brewed with significant quantities of brown and black malts, so you can expect a dark, rich, bitter, but smooth malty flavour. Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic hops are used to balance the malty, bitter flavours.
Chocolate Porter ABV 6.5% 330ml bottle
A traditional porter recipe, comprising pale, crystal, brown and chocolate malts, together with Target hops for bitterness and Fuggles hops for aroma (24 IBUs). Cocoa bean extract is added to the conditioning tank prior to bottling, to add to the rich, dark, chocolaty flavour.
Paragon Porter (Coffee Porter) ABV 6.5% 330ml bottle
This porter is brewed with a range of dark, roasted malts (crystal, brown & chocolate), plus some wheat malt and flaked oats for head retention. Coffee beans are added to the conditioning tank and left for 6-7 days, to give a strong coffee flavour.
Stepney Porter (Vanilla Porter) ABV 6.5% 330ml bottle
A strong, rich porter, made with a range of dark, roasted malts (crystal, brown & chocolate), plus some wheat malt and flaked oats for head retention, and finally some pure vanilla extract just before bottling, to give it a wonderful aroma and flavour.
Cannon Street Porter (Coconut Porter) ABV 6.6% 330ml bottle
This porter is brewed with a range of dark, roasted malts (crystal, brown & chocolate), plus some wheat malt and flaked oats for head retention. Toasted coconut flakes are added to the conditioning tank and left for about a week, to give a subtle coconut aroma and flavour.
Slavanka 1873 ABV 7.0% 330ml bottle
An Imperial Russian Stout, based on a Victorian recipe - there's a clue to the Russian connection in the name. Brown and black malts make up nearly half of the grain bill, so this is about as dark and rich as they come. Target and Fuggles hops produce a whopping 70 IBUs of bitterness. The high ABV means it'll continue to mature over a long period of time and so keep for years.
Slavanka Special Reserve 2020 ABV 11.3% 330ml bottle
We carried out a double mash of our Slavanka 1873 recipe and used only the richest first runnings for the boil, to give an extra strong, rich, complex imperial stout. After fermentation it spent time in a conditioning tank with single-malt Speyside whisky oak chips, which adds a further dimension to the flavour.
Green Hop Bitter ABV 4.2% 500ml bottle AVAILABLE NOW
A traditional English bitter, made with fresh English hops grown in sunny Hull - Fuggles for bitterness and Challenger for aroma. The grains are mainly pale malt, with some crystal and black malt for flavour and colour.
Avenues Pale Ale ABV 4.2% 500ml bottle (Seasonal beer - SOLD OUT)
This beer follows our Cascade Pale recipe (see above) but is brewed using fresh Cascade hops grown in the Avenues area of Hull. The aroma is more subtle than the usual Cascade Pale and it's well worth a try.
