Winter time…

Winter is coming. The nights are drawing in. Warlocks will play and winds will shout. But it’s all grand because we have Beavertown taking over Friends of Ham for Hallowe’en weekend and bringing some extra special brews with them. Alongside classics like Gamma Ray, Neck Oil and soon-to-be classic Lupuloid, we will be showcasing some of Beavertown’s awesome small batch brews…


First up – as it’s Hallowe’en – is Stingy Jack, a 7.2% pumpkin ale packed with classic autumnal flavours like cinnamon, cloves and vanilla for a lovely sweet and spicy treat. Stingy Jack is minimal on the hop front, instead allowing the glazed pumpkin and spices to take centrestage along with a full, oaty mouthfeel. A proper winter warmer.


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Next is the latest in the Phantom series; Lime.The brewers add lactobacillus to the boil to naturally sour the beer with a yoghurty tang. Add lime and you have a puckering, tart citrus treat. Explosions of sour sherbert make this a Hallowe’en beer with a difference.


Finally, we have Gondoila, another addition to their incredible range of imperial stouts. This one is an 11% chocolate and raspberry monster with a smooth mouthfeel belying it’s weighty ABV. Dark chocolate and raspberry is a classic combination and Gondoila pays homage to it in the best way possible. Rich, satisfying and decadent, it is the perfect nightcap to ward off any evil spirits.


Our Beavertown showcase starts on Friday and will run for as long as the beers last, so get down early to avoid missing these beastly brews.
