Satsumatra

Twisted Barrel ale are basically our big brother when it comes to brewing. We have been members of their Home Brew Club for a while now and we were enormously grateful for their encouragement and sage advice when we took the plunge commercially. So when they asked us to collaborate on a brew as part […]

Most of our beer ends up in a keg. There are a number of reasons for this and one of the key benefits for us, as a relatively new brewery, is that it means that we monitor the beer – at least to some extent. It’s a luxury which larger brewers don’t necessarily have: we […]

First beer in the keg!

So we’ve made a beer. Our first one, a Brut IPA, was always going to be the one with all the mistake so it’s possible this one won’t see the light of day. The great thing is with brewing, of course, is that we won’t know until we try it – probably in about a […]

California 15: The Rare Barrel / Jupiter, Berkeley
