HOPPY MONDAYS.












We've only gone and brewed our own beer, it's been well documented how one of our favourite past times is good old pubs and the real ale revolution. So with that in mind, it was always a long intention, dare we say even a bit of a dream to do this. After several long months, discussions and the odd taste tests, we put our heads together with our friends from Soho; Sam, Rhydian, Ryan and Aaron at Weekend Offender and decided it was something we should just go ahead and do! 
Working with the independent Derby based brewery Dancing Duck we came up with a nice summery session ale that features a combination of three hops - Citra from the USA, Admiral from the UK, and Dana from Slovenia. At 4.3% this is on the ever so slightly stronger side of a typical 'session' ale, but not too strong at all. Just what we like - refreshing, light and hoppy, a great colour and varied taste of fruit, hops, barley and pine. Due to the hoppy content, we went with the first name we could come up and it worked out well, it just stuck. These will be exclusively available via Weekend Offender, due to logistical/distribution factors. These come as a four pack in a special box with beer mats with special artwork by our good pal Peter O'Toole. This was a long drawn out process where the four of us were also helped with other chaps keen to see this come to fruition, special thanks go to our friend Lennie who helped with the ongoing headfuck that was the box design. Feels a bit like the Oscars this, sorry. We're just dead chuffed we've finally made a bevvie, get it whilst you can. Get pissed with us!  ***UPDATE*** 
Due to a delay on licensing this release has had to be put back until next week. Apologies!
