New Brews

An award winning beery lovechild is here…

We now stock bottles of the super tasty Red Eye Pale Ale, a collaboration brew from our friends at Renegade Brewery and their friends Farmageddon Brewery in Northern Ireland

Packed with Columbus, Galaxy and Centennial hops this hoppy Red IPA begins with big aromas of burnt orange and passion-fruit followed by sweet malt flavours and a dry resinous finish. Full-on with bags of flavour it is unfiltered so has a nice haze on it that gives the red colour a really menacing air.

Red-Eye-2This hook-up began with a bit of a “swipe right” at Craft Beer Rising last year between the intrepid brewers at Renegade, and their counterparts at Farmageddon. After bloodshot eyes met over a “few” pints at the event and a subsequent exchange of hoppy love notes a genuine beery bromance was born. The result of this was a bromantic break at the Farmageddon brewery in Northern Ireland for the Renegade boys that led to this hoppy beast of an IPA love-child. We are told a lot of fun was had and a lot of beer “sampled”.

Amazingly, the Farmageddon crew entered the beer straight into the Belfast Beer Festival, fresh into its kegs, and it only went and won Champion Beer of All Ireland!! Amazing what can happen with a drunken idea at a beer event…
