SCRUMptious 4.4% PDF Print E-mail

Off BeatOriginally made for the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, 2011, Offbeat Brewery have overhauled this recipe to bring it back in time for the Six Nations and again for the Rugby World Cup. Expect a sucker punch of hoppy flavours from a load of Amarillo and Chinook in this amber ale.

We're looking forward to this one from Brewster Michelle Kelsall who started Offbeat Brewery in the Borough Arms 2 barrel brew pub in Crewe during November 2010, and renting Unit 6, Thomas Street, for storage and office space. They rapidly outgrew the Borough Arms kit and pushed ahead to get a 6 barrel plant installed at the unit; a 2 barrel brewery just couldn't keep up with the demand.

 
Cornish Orchard Vintage 7.2% PDF Print E-mail

Cornish Orchards medium dry cider created from apples selected for their soft tannins and traditional flavour. This classic cider is matured over the winter months, to bestow vintage qualities.

altCornish Orchards Ciders are made on the Duchy of Cornwall farm Westnorth Manor Farm in Duloe Cornwall.  A Duchy of Cornwall Cornish Orchards Project supported the restoration of old orchards across Cornwall or advised on planting new ones with old varieties. Local nurseries were commissioned to propagate over 60 varieties of apple tree, all traditionally grown in Cornwall.

Some of the varieties include Ellison's Orange, Beauty of Bath, Cornish Longstem, Tommy Knight and Colloggett Pippin.  Fresh picked under ripe fruit gave a sharp, clean juice. Apples that were ripe or over ripe produced a smoother, more mellow result.

Not only is it satisfying using West North Manor Farms own fruit, but being able to provide a source of income to farmers whose old orchards can still produce a crop is wonderful.

Taste Notes [under construction]: Made from a blend of cider apples. A lovely easy drinking medium-dry cider with a nice dry finish.

  • Colour - ?Amber
  • Sweetness - ?3
  • Acidity - ?3
  • Tannin - ?1
