Beer52 – May 2016


The end of the month is here, my bank account has been injected with some fresh bunce and my Beer52 box has arrived just in time for the Bank Holiday weekend.

There are some great beers included this month including a fruity number from Panda Frog Project, A smoky porter from Hardknott and an American Red from Fourpure.
In addition to the beers, I received my first perk of the subscription in the form of a Beer52 bar-blade.
I mustn’t forget the snack thats included each month which comes in the form of chilli bite flavoured Munchy Seeds.

Take a look at the selection below along with the bottle description and their origin.

Fourpure – Flatiron American Red (Bermondsey, England)
This mahogany red beer is a beautiful marriage of malt and hops. Elegantly balanced, notes of caramel, toffee, and toasted grains are complemented by bright, citrusy and tropical American hop character and a smooth finish.

Blacks of Kinsale – Pale Ale (Kinsale, Ireland)
Bottled, regular
The exciting fusion of Cascade and Citra hops.

Panda Frog Project – Red Panda (North Shields, England)
US hop charged red ale infused with raspberries, blackberries and strawberries.
Panda Frog Project, Mordue brewery experimental arm, crafted from the twisted genius that is Robert Millichamp (Head Brewer) and the occasional rationality of the Fawson Brothers.

CAP – Endless Vacation (Stockholm, Sweden)
An american pale ale hopped with Columbus & Cascade. Careful amounts of caramel malt gives it a nice balanced maltiness. Pale ales are best known for pairing with seafood of all types, especially fried seafood or heavily spiced seafood, but this one is also a great thirst quencher or a beer to satisfy your hop cravings.

WOOHA – Lager (Moray, Scotland)

To-0l – Gose to Hollywood (Denmark)
To Øl got starstruck. This is how we went to Hollywood. Salty, sour, light gose brewed with the best fruits California can offer. Best consumed on warm summer days or on the red carpet.

Hardknott – Brownian Motion (England)
This beer contains tiny smoke particles, which may be visible under a microscope. It will also contain atoms, which are incredibly tiny. Ergo, because this beer is not at absolute zero, and does contain some thermal energy, even if it has been in the fridge, it is a brownian motion generator
There is an infinite impossibility that a whale appeared above a remote planet somewhere very, very far away as a result.

CAP – Bohemian Rhapsody (Stockholm, Sweden)
Dusty. Boring. An industrialised beer style. Not around here. Not at CAP. Around here ‘Old School’ is the new ‘New School’…
Classic styles are respected. Brewing traditions honoured. The brew masters of years gone by are loved. So when we brew… We brew humbly in the shadows of the legends who have gone before us.
Na zdravi my friend. Na zdravi.

Firestone Walker – Easy Jack (Paso Robles, California, USA)
Easy Jack came about when Brewmaster Matt Brynildson went to the mountain top and returned with a vision for a different kind of Session IPA, one that would be brewed and dry hopped with a globetrotting selection of newer hop varieties from Germany, New Zealand and North America. He foresaw a beer that would deliver massive hop aromas, surprising dimension, a signature malt balance and an empty glass before you knew what hit you. And so the newest member of our Jack IPA family was born.

Founders – All Day IPA (Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA)
The beer you’ve been waiting for. Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatics and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day’s work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life’s simple pleasures.
