#HBBAdvent Beer 14: Magic Rock x Modern Times Timequake Session IPA (Huddersfield)

Magic Rock says: A collaboration with San Diego brew wizards Modern Times, Andrew and Luke joined up with us a few weeks back to create a super sessionable modern style IPA. With this recipe we went heavy on the Rye malt to add body/flavour allied to low bitterness and a high finishing gravity to balance things out. As you might expect this was joined by some very generous hop dosing both in whirlpool and dry hop, using lots of good hops (none of the bad ones) to create this super crushable 4.5% session IPA with a deep hop flavour and spicy finish.

We say: Timequake is the session IPA all other session IPAs aspire to be. So much flavour for 4.5%. A Thursday beer to get you excited for the weekend. - Jen

#HBBAdvent Beer 1: Cloudwater x Modern Times Lipids & Proteins IPA (Manchester)

Cloudwater says: Brewed in collaboration with Modern Times, this hazy IPA was brewed with Golden Promise and oats, and features bold US hops and fresh harvest Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand.

We say: A Cloudwater beer had to kick off this year's advent calendar - the Manchester brewery has played a hugely important part in the life of our shop in 2017.

We've been so fortunate to work closely with the Cloudwater team, which has meant we've been able to get our hands on positively greedy amounts of their amazing beers for you. In fact, we've sent more than 10,000 cans of Cloudwater goodness out the door and across the country - including, excitingly, our own collaboration brewed for our 3rd birthday.

Cloudwater is changing the way the UK enjoys beer (for the better) and we're pleased to have been able to play a tiny part in that. Here's to you, guys - we raise this glass of great big hazy juicebomb to you. - Jen
