We know how much you like a new seasonal cask beer and February sees the first of a number for 2018. The word ‘Stoggy’ might not be familiar to many of you but here in East Yorkshire it is a local word for a Wood Pigeon. At this time of year, Stoggies tend to group together in huge flocks looking for something eat, typically a farmers crops.
Don’t worry no Stoggies have been harmed in the making of this beer because it has been brewed with home grown pale ale, wheat and a little crystal malt. It is a session IPA brewed in an English style so the emphasis on easy drinking but with a blend of both traditional and newer varieties of hops. The classic British Northdown, a favourite of ours have been blended perfectly by our Head Brewer, Nick Hopper with Fusion and American Mosaic whole hops. For the first time we have also used Eureka, a hop from Slovenia to dry hop the beer to give it that fresh hop taste. The beer has bags of berry fruit flavour with an unexpected herbal and pine aroma to add complexity to this perfectly balanced beer.

We have just the solution if you’d like to enjoy a cask of our award winning beer at home for a party, BBQ or celebration. These smart little pop up bars can be set up both inside or outside with room to mount up to two hand pumps on the bar and space to place two 9 gallon casks underneath.
Bar hire is charged at £20.00 + vat with the pumps supplied for just a £50.00 refundable deposit. Our cask beers come in 2 different sizes, 4.5 gallon (36 pints) and 9 gallon (72 pints) which are priced at £50.00 and £92.80 respectively. Local delivery is included but remember we need to deliver at least the day before the event for it to settle, although it can be dropped bright which means it doesn’t require settling for a charge of £5.00 + vat per cask. Also we offer ice sheets to keep the beer cool in hot weather plus bottle beer as a back up if you don’t want to run out. All you have to do is just decide which beer you’d like from our range.
If you have any further queries then send a message to our friendly and helpful team who will be happy to help.

The event kicks off at 1pm on Roos Playing Field through to 11pm.
A couple of weeks ago we attended our first Italian beer festival in the town of Livorno on the North West coast of Tuscany. Attended by 10 other Italian craft breweries, Hop Summer Fest was a great spectacle of beer, Italian street food and music. One of the more unusual things was to hold a beer tasting in a boat along the canals of Livorno that pass through the town. The Italian beer drinkers love the different styles and what better way to try them than by holding cheese and beer matching event with Simone Cantoni a professional beer taster and journalist.
The Italian craft beer scene is thriving and the choice of beers is staggering, if any of the beers we tasted are to go by then then Italian craft beer is in a good place. With a range of 5 of our beers on the bar our classic British styles went down really well with many of the people we spoke to, Frothingham Best and Amy’s Aviator Ale being particular favourites. We are looking forward to visiting our Italian friends very soon.
A massive thank you to everyone who came along to our Festivale on 17th June. Blessed with great sunshine, fantastic music, delicious street food and of course a supply of great beer over 400 of you came along to enjoy the day. A special thank you must go to Morning Dew, Katie Spencer & Licks who provided the music which went down a storm. Also Kerb Edge, Hull Pie and Mr Moos who provided the nourishment. Finally Chris Branton who provided the bar and marquee for the day.
The day was all about raising money for good causes with £1,000 being raised for the Daisy Appeal and £400 given to Morning Dew who donate all of the money they raise to Dove House Hospice.
So, put the 16th June 2018 in your diary for Festivale 2018.
