New stuff in store: 5 November

On a grey and dreary Guy Fawkes' Day, here are a few things to put a rocket under your bum and a spring in your step - AMAZING NEW BEERS. 

From the best part of London - that is, the South Side - we bring you:

  • Brixton Pacific APA - it's no secret that our favourite Brixton beer has always been their juicy American-style pale ale, Atlantic, so - with a natural bias for all things down under - we were especially excited to see the new special edition Pacific Antipodean Pale Ale, showcasing the region’s boldest hops. A terrific beer!
  • Brew By Numbers Black IPA - BBNO brings back the Black IPA, this time hopped with one of our favourite hops, the mighty Mosaic.
  • Fourpure Northern Latitude - A delicious Scandanavian-inspired rye ale that's made for wintry times (and the perfect contrast to their forthcoming Southern Latitude summer ale, which was a huge smash last Christmas). And it has a reindeer on the can!
  • Late Knights Peckham Rye IPA - finally back on shelf! Our favourite beer from the pub kings (and fellow Dulwich Hamlet sponsors) of South East London.

From further afield in this fine country of ours:

  • Cloudwater DIPA - Manchester's excellent Cloudwater Brewery turns one on Saturday and to celebrate, they're launching a brand new, massively-hopped Double IPA. We'll have it on flagon-fill (at 9%, the biggest beer we've ever poured into 1-litre bottles) and in 330ml bottles from Saturday.
  • Moor Not Another Eurovision Beer - Every week we demand more Moor and this week they've obliged with this succulent new rye amber, brewed with Brewdog for this year's Collab Fest. Plus, one of our absolute favourites strikes back as Return of the Empire, um, returns.

Finally, from even further afield:

  • Jester King - adding to our illustrious stock of 750ml sharing bottles, we add two from this incredible US farmhouse brewery committed to making wild ales and spontaneously fermented beers. Vernal Dichomotomy is a saison fermented with kumquats, rosemary, lavender and spearmint (yes!) and Provenance Lemon & Lime is a wild-fermented citrus ale. 
  • And Imma let you finish, but Evil Twin & Lervig's Big Ass Money, an imperial stout brewed with money and pizza, has the best name and description of all time. Due in on Friday.

New stuff in store: 24 July

Here's your obligatory new stuff round-up for this week. Loads of beery goodness as always, plus Batch 2 of our famous HBB1 Hopped & Burning Hot Sauce - our fastest selling sauce ever! In addition, you;'ll find a heap of new records in our bins too. Right, to the beer...

  • Two new entries on the local front: first, the much-vaunted Deserter IPA, the unholy issue of the shirkaholic gadabouts of Deserter, South East London's finest blog, and Late Knights Brewery. Read about its birth here and grab one in store while you can. Second up, Coldharbour Courage from London Beer Lab - a guarana and honey ale brewed with the good folk at Brixton Buzz to raise money for Brixton Soup Kitchen. An honourable mention this week to the Kernel too, whose IPA brewed with Equinox hops is simply outstanding. 
  • From sunny Scotland comes a new one from Brewdog - Elvis Juice, a citrus IPA that is jammed to the hilt full of grapefruit and blood orange. If you like your citrus in massive doses or are simply in need of some Vitamin C, this is the beer for you.
  • Roosters High Tea IPA is the product of the Roosters lot palling up with beer writer Melissa Cole - a jasmine green tea IPA that brings together Admiral, Cascade, Crystal and Galaxy hops, jasmine flowers and Taylors’ Green Tea with Jasmine. You'll find it on the can shelves.
  • We add another Wild Beer to the shelves - the always popular Somerset Wild - and start panicking about where to put all the new Wild Beers that start arriving next week, which include the return of Shnoodlepip, the new gose Sleeping Lemons and The Blend 2015.
  • Finally, the US section gets a new recruit in the form of the legendary Yankee farmhouse ale, Boulevard Tank 7.  One of our American friend Mitch's all time favourite beers. This one's for you, sir!

PS - keep checking what's coming up on flagon-fill - loads of NZ kegs waiting to go on plus some amazing local goodness too...
