It might feel like it’s been a long time since our last blog, that’s because it has been. Summer is normally a quiet time on campus but this definitely isn’t true for Stu Brew. We’ll try to give you the low down of some of what we’ve been up to this summer as briefly as possible. This blog is will cover the first part of our summer with the second section coming out next week.
In our last blog, we talked about Stu Brews biggest ever beer, Prime. The first release of Prime is now out but won’t be around for long. Prime is a gorgeous imperial stout with more flavour than you’ll know what to do with.
The best place to see this beauty will be at the Friend of Anarchy beer festival this Saturday. If you haven’t got a ticket yet then there’s still time to get one here. Make sure to check out the Stu Brew stall if you will be attending as we’ll be serving up a range of our best beers.
Some of our avid followers may have noticed another new Stu Brew beer knocking around for the last month or so. All-Nighter was a real test that had our brewers leaving the Brewery well into the small hours. A black cherry porter which would struggle to be called subtle, the cherry flavour grabs you and doesn’t let go. Not a classical English porter that’s for sure. Keep an eye out for it over the next couple of months because it’s very limited in volume and won’t be hanging around.
Since then we’ve also brewed another collaboration beer with Tom from Estate Tea Co, this was a part of Collabathon 2019 and we brewed a sencha infused pale ale. Hakko comes in at 5.4% and is super refreshing with a subtle fruitiness created by the infusion with sencha.
Even more exciting news is that everyone’s favourite blood orange pale, Zest Tube is now available in cans. Look out for it in your local Stu Brew stockist! It’s the perfect drink for some late summer sun.
The last update for this week is that we have a tasting session and quiz coming up. This event is in partnership with IChemE, therefore, IChemE members can get a subsidised entry of only £5. Any members of Stu Brew can also benefit from a reduced entrance fee of only £10. Availability is very limited and this isn’t one you want to miss. Included in the ticket price is 6 different beers with a guided tasting from two of our most experienced brewers, a Stu Brew glass to take home with you and the opportunity to win prizes in the Stu Brew pub quiz. It should be a great night and we hope to see lots of people there. Buy your tickets here.
That’s everything for now,
The Stu Brew Team
