The Behemoth – Alc. 7.2% Vol.

The OED defines a Behemoth as ‘a huge or monstrous creature or something enormous.’ With this in mind, having recently made some modifications to our mash tun, we’ve been able to brew our strongest (and hoppiest) beer to date. Step forward… The Behemoth. Brewed using five of the best hops that money can buy (if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on them, that is)*, The Behemoth is a 7.2% India Pale Ale. We’re not going to offer up…

Baby-Faced Assassin – Alc. 6.1% Vol.

Deceptively quaffable India Pale Ale Baby-Faced Assassin was originally conceived as a recipe in the back office of Beer Ritz in Headingley, Leeds, on a dark winter’s afternoon in early 2011, before being brewed as a very small batch beer. Fast-forward nearly three years and we’ve decide to brew the beer on a commercial scale for the first time. There’s no getting away from what this beer is and that’s a celebration of hops and, more specifically, one hop in…
