Guest Brewery #3 Vocation Brewery

Vocation Brewery LogoJeez, January was tough, right? Well, we’re in mid-Feb now, we’ve finished gifting for Christmas and Valentines and we are seeing the first signs of spring, exciting! We spent last month embracing Tryanuary, we tasted some lovely beers and Vocation Brewery were one of our favourites. We aren’t even going to be subtle about it, head to the Ecclesall Ale Club and we’ve got their finest  pales on the bar.

If you buy your craft beers from the supermarket then you’re probably aware of Vocation Brewery. The Hebden Bridge brewers have their cans in major supermarkets across the UK and their bold branding stands out. It’s simple but affective. It might be just a black can with a brightly coloured slogan such as ‘Pride & Joy’ or ‘Life & Death’ but it screams “drink me now”.Vocation cans

Not only is it visually appealing but the contents of the can are equally impressive. Like all good brewers, Vocation have found a formula and mastered it, the pales came first (sessions, IPAs, APAs) then they branched out to the Pilsner because there’s always somebody wanting a lager… They brew over 17,000 pints worth of beer a week! Vocation Brewery is relatively young but built with experience as it was founded by John Hickling who previously owned Blue Monkey Brewery in Nottingham.

The IPA is always a great introduction when converting a lager fan to an ale, Brewdog’s Punk, the Jaipur by Thornbridge or the Goose Island IPA tend to be the go to but Vocation’s pales are full of fruity flavours with a hoppy kick that entice the tastebuds without being over-powering and intense.

Vocation at Ale ClubCans from your local supermarket are fine but a freshly pulled pint is far more superior and we currently have Pride & Joy and Bread & Butter on the bar. You really don’t want to miss out.

Who doesn’t love a tab room? Drinking from it’s source is always a winner and Vocation & Co. is a collaboration with locals. They are open 7 days a week in West Yorkshire and if you get hungry, fear not, they have tacos! It’s well worth a day trip, more details on Vocation & Co and Vocation Brewery can be found on their website.
