Bison Beer is on the Map
It May be bank holiday weekend but we won’t be running around any maypoles or Morris dancing just yet. Instead we’re remaining indoors whilst we wait for the official start of summer – from the Met Office! Luckily we’ve teamed up with various artists across Brighton to welcome you into their houses with delicious Bison Beer. Go and escape the elements on the Central Trail with 20 venues to choose from within walking distance of our store. We’re exhibiting some of the art in store too so swing by and cheers to that with a beer on us. And if you don’t feel like intruding on the artist’s houses then you can hang out at the Vans store with cans of See Side APA on offer Saturday night where Will Blood, amongst others, will be drawing on skateboards for Deck Show 2 before his 5 week solo show at Brush. Then there’s the small matter of draught Beast Street IPA at the opening of shop friend, Oli Butler’s, Trunk Top 86 on Gardener Street and Brighton Tattoo Convention.
The guys and gals from Crate Brewery came down from East London for our latest meet and greet at the Crafthouse last night. 64 Degreespaired some delicious food to their brews, featuring the one off Oceanic Pale Ale that got rave reviews by those in attendance by the seaside. Somehow there’s still a few growlers of that (but no more beef brisket) left so come on down and check it out today.
We also went to Arundel this week as we finally felt ready to try and brew a DIPA. We took plenty of help with us with Coconut IPA kings Matt and Ben joining the brew squad which included Les from The Bison Arms team and plenty of Arundel regulars as well. The story started at the Pulborough Citrus Centre where we picked lemons the size of Nick’s head from the tree and zested them overnight. In the spirit of doubling up we’ve all agreed to try and double our press-ups by the time the brew comes into can…
These guys don’t worry about telling ya about the beer on the bottle, that’s for you to decide. It’s a sweet and juicy IPA with a little bitterness to finish off. It’s a Bank Holiday sunshine kinda beer boys and girls. Head to that Bison fridge and give it a go!
I’ll give this four and a bit Bretts outta five. Cheers!
