Hops and Dreams, session IPA, coming January 2016

Yesterday was a great day! I started brewing our third beer; a 4% session IPA called Hops and Dreams. We wanted to make a beer that is moreish enough to be a great session beer but flavoursome enough to satisfy anyone’s hop addiction.

Hops & Dreams is brewed using Magnum, Cascade and Rakau hops to give it a citrus, floral, resinous, “hoppy” aroma and flavour. It has a pale ale malt base to allow the three hops to work their magic on your senses. Magnum hops

Two lots of Magnum are added to give body and flavour, then lots of Cascade hops are added at the end of the boil for plenty of floral and fruity aroma.

In a few days time I’ll dry hop the brew with Rakau hops to give it a tropical fruit aroma and flavour.

We are putting it into cask, keg and bottles on the 4th January so it will be ready to go from the 11th January 2016.

Keep your eyes peeled for it from our usual stockists plus other great beer establishments across Sheffield, Cheshire and Manchester. Please contact us if you would like to stock any of Brew Foundation’s beers: Hops & Dreams, First Light or Bitter That.
