Hitting our gravity on Lluvia Azul!

Written by Liz

Happy days, fermentation trotting along very nicely on our new Lluvia Azul NEIPA. The New England iPA style is described by words such as juicy and tropical because the of the type of hops used and the dryhop schedules used. The result is a delicious hazy concoction perfect for summer! Or anytime really…. Using hops is like cooking: you have to keep tasting to see what works and what doesn’t. In Lluvia Azul we are trying out three different combinations, one with Nugget and Chinook, one with added coriander and one with added geranium leaves. Yep, I am very curious about that last one as well 😉

Few days left in fermentation and then we’ll bottle! Can’t wait.

Lluvia Azul

While the wind and rain are howling outside inside I can hear the sweet bubbling of my airlock!
I had a very happy brewday trying out different versions of our summer beer, a NEIPA the very tropical and hazy Lluvia Azul, Blue Rain. NEIPA, New England IPA’s, have a very different hopping schedule to a ‘normal’ IPA, including dryhopping during primary fermentation.

And of course brewing made me thirsty….

Beer presentation in China

I had such a wonderful time in Hangzhou presenting my beer to new Chinese clients!

I was forgiven for my less-than-perfect Chinese, interesting questions, great food and fab people.

Un Rayo de Sol oh, oh, oh on Ukulele

As a brewer I like to get up close and personal with my beers and my new Un Rayo de Sol Almond Blossom Session IPA is probably one of my most personal beers so far. It’s light, hoppy with a sour kick. It’s perfection in a bottle. And named for one of my favourite Spanish songs of all times!

Very very happy with the new poster designed by the lovely and very talented Lena!

I love how she has created the rain and the Batman – like sun beam. Great poster for a great beer!
