Revolutions Finally Settle Down
Revolutions Brewing Company have finally commenced brewing at their permanent brewery. With the fit-out and installation of brewing equipment in an industrial unit on the outskirts of Castleford now complete, the first brew, Clash London Porter (4.5%) is about to be shipped to customers throughout Yorkshire and further afield.
They’ve been brewing occasionally as a cuckoo brewer throughout the latter part of 2010. Production of four other core beers – Ravenscroft Pale Ale (3.3%), Severin Dark (3.3%), Devolution Amber Ale (4.5%) and Kraftwerk Braun Ale (4.5%) is planned for July and August. In addition regular music-themed special beers will be available, and the music fans amongst you will recognise that the abv’s reflect Vinyl running speeds. Revolutions have built up a steady little fanbase with their tasty dark beers, and it’s great news that they’ve finally kicked their permanent home into gear; I know that they’ve been tweaking and refining recipes, as well as dealing with the nightmare that is setting up a new brewhouse. If you don’t know much about them, you can check out my 2010 interview here.
Speaking of tasty dark beers, Thornbridge’s Evenlode is now on at Mr Foley’s (well, it was last night) and I must say ; it’s got one of the best coffee aromas that I’ve ever sampled on a beer Billed as a Brown Porter, the nose is rich, fresh and with slightly creamy/milk chocolate undertone – it literally smells like a fresh, steaming espresso. Despite this, it’s a light, flavourful beer. Do give it a try – but leave some for me, yeah?
