News from Amber Ales - August 2014It's been a whirlwind of a summer here at Amber Ales, with events at the pub, the brewery and beyond! Running the beer for events such as the Wirksworth Beer and Train Bash, Ambergate Carnival and Belper Food and Ale Fair, the most ambitious Amberfest (our beer festival at the brewery) yet and supplying beer into festivals such as the Northern Green Gathering and Just So have kept us busy!
The Talbot Taphouse continues to go from strength to strength and the monthly events have been widely appreciated. these include the Farmhouse Ales weekend in May, Craft Keg month, and the upcoming Golden Ales weekend in August.
We challenged our head brewer Pete to come up with that most difficult of brews, a weak, pale session ale with great flavour. He drew on experiences from our popular 'Hop Project' series of single hop golden ales to produce a cracker! Our new summer seasonal, Summer Gold is a 3.6% golden ale with bags of flavour from the Citra, Nelson Sauvin and Amarillo hops and a good body and mouthfeel. Everywhere it goes it sells out double quick!
That's about it for our news; if you want to write to us, see contact details below.
