Howl


   

Howl Keg Badge

Late last year we brewed a beer called Howl, which was a 6.8% imperial stout that was conditioned on rum barrel oak and released a cask-only limited edition beer in the run up to Christmas. It sold really well and consumer feedback has been incredibly positive (so much so that we intend to re-visit the beer at some stage in the future, albeit with a different twist).

What we didn’t tell anyone was that we squirreled 5 BBLs of the original beer away, prior to the rum barrel oak being introduced and conditioned the beer on figs, prunes, blackcurrants and oak salvaged from a used Glen Garioch whisky barrel. Having sat, tucked away in a corner of the brewery for three months, we canned this version of the beer at the start of January and released it via some of our free trade customers and a small handful of independent wholesalers.

Prior to canning we also kegged a minute amount of the beer (six kegs in total), with just four bars receiving stock:

The Maltings, York

Harrogate Tap, Harrogate

Friends of Ham, Leeds

North Bar Social, Otley

The beer will be delivered to the above pubs at the end of January, with North Bar Social having the first pour as part of our tap takeover there, which starts on January 27th. Keep an eye on the Twitter feeds of the various pubs, as they’ll no doubt be letting everyone know when the beer hits the bar.

The final two kegs will be coming with us to Craft Beer Rising in London at the end of February, along with some other new beers on keg.
