Red Hill Showcase lineup for May

The confirmed lineup for the Red Hill Brewery May showcase lineup in both venues is their Golden Ale, Wheat Beer, Scotch Ale and Hoppy Birthday Ale (same as Hop Harvest Ale, but brewed with fresh green hops)

Here's the brewery blurb re the Hop Harvest Ale..

The brewers were knee deep in our hops for this special brew; using hops just harvested from our own vines which were then steeped in our conditioning vats for months, this is a traditional English style bitter in the ESB style. Copper in colour with a strong malt character, balanced by the use of our new seasons Willamette and Goldings hops to create a full hop flavour and aroma. The complex grain bill creates a full, rich and malty ale that has hints of marmalade and lashings of hop resin flavours, finishing with a peppery spicy note.

  1. If it tastes even half as good as it did straight from the fermenter two weeks ago - it'll be a cracker. Any chance of some fresh hop flowers at the bar to 'dunk' - I'm having Hop Withdrawal!
