Firstly, Happy New Year everyone!
Secondly, Wow! What a 2019 we had eh? Our biggest year to date which was made even better by the plethora of collabs we managed to squeeze in. Special thanks to the guys Boutilliers, Beatnikz Republic Brewing Co., Abbeydale Brewery, Ridgeside Brewing Co, The Beerblefish Brewing Company, Heist Brew Co, Team Toxic and Craft Beer Lovers Forum for joining us on our brewing journey, we hope to work with all you guys again very soon!
2019 marked our third year in the industry and also an introduction into the festival scene with a stand at the ever wonderful Derby Beer Con and what better way to introduce ourselves than having our Rum Barrel Aged Starbeer on cask!
The end of 2019 was a hectic one for us as we finally decided to say goodbye to our trusty (but small) tap room as we started work on a major expansion project seeing the tap room nearly triple in size! (more details coming soon)...
So what does 2020 have in store for Beer Ink?
We already have two international collabs planned for this year! Firstly we'll be hosting our amigos from Bonvivant Beer (Malaga, Spain). We went over to their brewery in December and they're producing some amazing beer at the moment so keep an eye out!
Secondly we'll be jaunting out to the States to brew with a good friend over at K2 Brothers Brewing (Rochester,NY) some point in summer so watch out for updates!
We also have out first festival booked in for the year at Generation Craft in Kent so we're gonna make sure we bring the thunder (beer wise and not the typical Yorkshire weather) for that!
And...that brings us to this weekend and our first brew of the year which is using a brand new experimental hop (CF - 260) from Charles Faram & Co Ltd!
Lastly, a massive Thank You to everyone who continually supports our brewery, both trade customers and the general public, without which we wouldn't be where we are today!
Have a great New Year!
