March 2014 Seasonal Brews

We're very excited about our latest 'World Cup of Hops' brew. 'Summit' is the forth in our series of experimental single hop beers for 2014. Each beer utilizes the same 4% extra pale malt base with a similar quantity of the hop the beer is named after. Summit is an American hop which gives an amazingly powerful Grapefruit aroma with a lingering citrus finish. We expect both brews of Summit to sell out very quickly.

March will also see a single brew of the potent 'Quicksilver' a 5% lager style beer that balances full bodied maltiness with a refreshing citrus aroma. Should be have a spare brew day we all intend to produce a single brew of 'White Rabbit'. White Rabbit uses Centennial hops to produce a dry and bitter 3.8% beer that is as pale as pale can be!

RAT BREWERY CAPACITY - A further fermenter has been ordered to allow 6 brews per week. This will go some way to helping fulfil demand for Rat beers which just keeps growing exponentially. As more Rat beers go into the growing Ossett Brewery estate and beer festivals this is unfortunately leaving very little available for free trade customers. Whilst this is a ‘nice’ problem to have we are apologetic to those outlets we are unable to supply with Rat Beers.

RAT-INFEST – The Rat & Ratchet will host the 'Rat-Infest' on the weekend of 25th - 27th April. This will include a full line up of Rat beers plus our 500th special brew (A Monkey Rat - a rather exciting 6% Whisky Cask Aged Red Ale). The Rat-Infest will also feature a competition to be part of the 'Ratificent 7' brewers!! - to help design and make a new Rat beer. We will be running the competition in the pub, on twitter and facebook, with the seven winners will be selected at random. There will food available (hoping to get the BBQ out, weather permitting!!) and also live music Saturday.
