Under the Thames Best Bitter
It feels a bit more than coincidental that so long ago, from all those past days of yore, someone important enough to name rivers on this continent, thought the one that courses through our city looked familiar enough to a certain UK river, not so subtlety named above we might add. While we don’t often get hung up on geography for naming beers, this one wouldn’t be denied its deserved sense of history or place.
Our first ever, brewed to style Best Bitter comes in at just the right time of year, like we’d hoped. Brewed with 100% UK ingredients and a classic single infusion mash, including a hefty dose of not often seen in this brewhouse - decadent English Crystal Malts. Fermented with the strain that arguably embodies the pride of London better than any other, this one has been bent on those early Autumn tones from its inception.
We find impressions of toffee, toasted bread crust, liquid caramel, citrus peel, and dried apricot. Like many of our beers, this example highlights our unrelenting pursuit of the complex, obtained by and with simplicity. 4.5% ABV
