Sunbather Launch

Dear Beer Lover,
Sunbather is finally jere amd brings a welcome change in the weather with it.
This second stage of our journey introduces the red ales, with sunbather being a fruity, full bodied and sweet ale of just 4%. Its pronounced flavours include toffies and oranges.
overall it’s not quite what you’d expect from a beer as anovice; but that’s what makes ales great, the diversity of styles and flavours.

Postcards from Dublin

Postcards from DublinWhere we will be heading next on our adventure?

The red ales of Ireland which can be sampled in the taverns of the Temple Bar area of Dublin are quite different than our English ales and hopefully we shall be recreating the taste and experiencing some of the craic down the pub here in Dorset.

The hops have just been ordered including Galena, which impart some grape and peach flavours.

Dear Beer Lovers and beer Novices,

Today is the first day of our adventure in flavour.  Over the next 9 months we shall be traveling on a journey through the delights of real ale.

Our first port of call is Paddler a 3.6% light ale.  It’s the ideal starting point, with its soft flavours and refreshing pallet, to train the pallet in the joy of all that is beer related.
