  • Green | Hawkshead & Yeastie Boys

    Name: Kai Moana Gose
    ABV: 6%
    Brief Description: A refreshingly tart, salty and fruity gose made with Kai Moana (Maori for seafood) NZ hops and green gooseberries.

    Story:
    We drew the colour green again (!!!) and that inspired thoughts of the sea surrounding both island nations. We sourced the finest oysters from Loch Fyne, native green lipped mussels from New Zealand and Himalayan rock salt. Lightly hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Motueka it’s all brought together by a big late addition of green gooseberries. Sit back and enjoy the colour green.

    Launch:
    Saturday 17th September will see the official launch of this year’s International Rainbow Project.

    The Beer Hall will host a launch party, simultaneously with Beavertown (London), Siren (Berkshire) and Magic Rock (Huddersfield) breweries.

    The free event at The Beer Hall will see all 7 of the rainbow beers served on draught keg. To complement the beers the kitchen will also be serving a New Zealand inspired menu including dishes such as The Kiwi Burger, Steak & Cheese Pie and Pavlova.

    Rainbow Mixed Cases:
    Mixed cases, which include all seven collab beers along with a souvenir Rainbow Project 2016 glass will be released at the launch.

  • Saturday 17th September will see the launch of 2016's International Rainbow Project.

    The Rainbow Project, now in its fourth year, brings together 7 of the UK’s most innovative, forward thinking breweries with 7 counterparts from New Zealand. Randomly paired, the collaborating breweries are each given a colour of the rainbow and challenged to create a new beer inspired by that colour.

    Red - Beavertown & Parrotdog , Orange - Burning Sky & Liberty Brewing, Yellow - Magic Rock & Fork Brewing, Green - Hawkshead & Yeastie Boys, Blue - Wild Beer Co. & 8 Wired, Indigo - Siren & Garage Project and Violet - Partizan.

    On Saturday 17th September The Beer Hall will host a launch party, simultaneously with Beavertown (London), Siren (Berkshire) and Magic Rock (Huddersfield) breweries.

    The free event at The Beer Hall will see all 7 of the rainbow beers served on draught keg plus an opportunity to purchase a limited edition mixed case - featuring 7 bottled beers and an official Rainbow Project glass - these can be reserved and paid for in advance. To complement the beers the kitchen will also be serving a New Zealand inspired menu including dishes such as The Kiwi Burger, Steak & Cheese Pie and Pavlova.

     

  • We had two beers in the final of the Campaign for Real Ale's Champion Beer of Britain competition, at London's Olympia last night and both won medals.

    NZPA (New Zealand Pale Ale) took silver and Hawkshead Bitter bronze, in their categories.

    "With more than 1500 breweries in the country now, the odds of getting to the final are long, to get a medal is the icing on the cake , to get two medals is a triumph for our brilliant brewing team, who are at the top of their game" said owner Alex Brodie, “what I’m most happy about is the consistent high level they achieve”.

    We've had beers in the final every year for the past 6 years “it’s one thing to brew a cracking beer once, the trick is to do it all the time” said Alex.

    To reach the finals, beers go through several rounds over the course of a year; they’re judged at local tasting panels and regional heats before the final judging at the Great British Beer Festival.

    Bitter 3.7% is the beer that built the brewery, first brewed in 2002. NZPA 6%, created by Head Brewer Matt, is a highly hopped pale ale brewed with four New Zealand hop varieties.

  • Taking collaborations to a new level - Session IPA - the result of our unprecedented brew day at Northern Craft.

    In celebration of our 10th summer beer festival, Northern Craft, Head Brewer Matt and 12 other craft brewers joined together to create one mass collab brew on Friday 22nd July.

    Given the breweries involved (Hawkshead, Runaway, Magic Rock, Fyne Ales, Cloudwater, Quantum, Thornbridge, Buxton, Marble, Roosters, Siren, Ashover & Pivovar) it’s not surprising to hear that this beer has been described as “a fruit-bomb of a beer”.

    Coming in at 4.7% Session IPA was brewed with a blend of malts and is loaded with big fruity American hops; Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Centennial.

    Being a one-off, casks & kegs are very limited, but have been distributed all over the north west and to further afield. You'll of course find Session IPA on the bar at The Beer Hall - while stocks last.

    Brewers from thirteen top craft breweries got together to brew a special beer on Friday 22nd July to mark “Northern Craft” - our 10th summer beer festival.

    Head Brewer Matt called in his generation of craft brewers to come and pool ideas. Brewers from Magic Rock, Thornbridge, Pivovar, Ashover, Cloudwater, Marble, Quantum, Siren, Buxton, Fyne, Runaway and Roosters collaborated.

    Beer lovers attending the festival were able to watch the beer being brewed, a highly hopped session IPA, which will be on sale in a few weeks.

    Throughout the three days of Northern Craft 8 and a half pints of beer a minute (or a pint every 7 seconds) were sold. During 33 hours of opening from noon on Thursday to 11pm on Saturday, 243 casks and kegs, of 106 different beers from 29 breweries were drunk dry.
